“I grew up in Surrey, worked in Surrey my entire life, and have great passion for Surrey as a community. I have observed dramatic growth in the city’s population over the past few decades. I give my time to the foundation board of directors because I believe a thriving community must have strong healthcare services and strong healthcare advocates. The foundation provides amazing opportunities to enhance healthcare for Surrey and the residents south of the Fraser river.”

“I’ve lived in Surrey the majority of my life, graduating from QE in 1971. My four children were born at Surrey Memorial and over the years have experienced care that was noticeably compassionate and caring. When I had the opportunity to join the Board it seemed like a great way to give back and over the years, I’ve been so fortunate to engage with so many amazing healthcare professionals, foundation staff and donors, all committed to making a difference!”

“I am a first generation immigrant and I have mostly lived and worked in Surrey. I have achieved a certain level of success and profile in the community thanks to the people who live south of the Fraser River. Serving on the Board of SHF gives me an opportunity to give back, to support, and to be a voice for the community that has supported me. Through the Foundation, we can provide impactful and much-needed help to our community.”

“I was drawn to volunteer for the Surrey Hospitals Foundation Board during the Children’s Health Centre campaign. I was compelled to do so to ensure that families south of the Fraser River with children who needed hospital care would not also have to bear the burden of significant travel, while still having to attend to the day-to-day needs of the rest of their families.

The Foundation plays a vital role in ensuring that the equipment and programs available for residents are quite simply ‘state of the art’. It is the difference between providing something acceptable and something exceptional, so that Surrey is a leader in the region, in providing care to residents south of the Fraser River. The parallel growth between this region, and the foundation over the years is truly inspirational.”
