On the night of December 18th, 2016, Alain Champagne was getting ready for bed when his wife Marion Bonner heard a loud thump. She bolted up the stairs to check on Alain. She found him slumped against a dresser, having a seizure.
A Second Home, a Second Family
In 1971, Monica Mogg immigrated to Canada from Jamaica excited to begin a new life in a new country. During her time as an obstetrics and gynecology nurse at Royal Columbian, she found a place to call home and a second family. She’s chosen to honour her time here with a gift in her Will to Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation.
