Grateful Patient

Remember the doctor whose knowledge and care made you feel calm and secure? And the nurse who chatted with you when you had a few questions? If you’d like to thank them – or perhaps an entire Osler team or department - it’s easy to do.

Toni Madigan Enza

Toni Madigan came to Brampton Civic with one goal: to get back on her feet. And she did, thanks to the compassion and expertise of orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Pradeep Alexander.

“My motto is ‘get up and go’ and that’s exactly what I did, with dancing, bowling, walking with my husband and more. When osteoarthritis in both ankles left me in a wheelchair, I began a long and frustrating search for help, far beyond my northern Ontario home. It seemed hopeless, until I found Dr. Alexander at Osler. World-renowned for his expertise in the type of orthopaedic surgery I needed, he said those three little words: ‘I can help.’ Today, I’m dancing again. Thank you Osler, and thank you Dr. Alexander. You changed my life.” - Toni Madigan

A devastating car accident left Robert with a broken arm and leg that required extensive physiotherapy. Today, he is back on his feet and his sister, Nancy Holloway, couldn’t be more grateful.

“Robert’s physiotherapist assistant, Enza Cuffaro, was there for him every step of the way, going above and beyond. She found him the special crutches he needed to regain his mobility and independence. And she demonstrated kindness and support. She made all the difference in Robert’s healing journey. And that’s why I’ve made a gift to honour Enza. We can’t thank her enough!” - Nancy Holloway
