Katy Gallagher is thanking the very generous Samuels family who have donated five bar fridges to the oncology ward in memory of their mother.
“This is a very kind gift from a family who has recently lost their mother,” Ms Gallagher said.
“This donation means that each patient and their family will have access to their own fridge during their stay in the ward,” she said.
“During this time when the family visited their mother, they took food and drinks with them, which made it easier for them and allowed the family more time to spend with their mother,” Ms Gallagher said.
“The family members noticed that as Hazel moved to different rooms, that some had fridges, whilst other rooms didn’t and they decided that they would donate some fridges as a ‘thank you’ gift, to be put into the rooms that did not have a fridge,” the Minister said.
Without in any way wishing to denigrate the generosity of the Samuels family Ms Gallagher:
YOU’RE RUNNING A BILLION DOLLAR HEALTH SYSTEM AND YOU CAN’T SPRING FOR FIVE BAR FRIDGES???
