In honour of World Cancer Day Dr. Christiaan Stevens (left), medical director, Simcoe Muskoka Regional Cancer Centre, and Dr. Bryn Pressnail, oncologist, traded in their stethoscopes for clippers as they helped shave Jordan Rossman’s head on Thursday. Rossman had his head shaved at Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre (RVH) to bring awareness to a disease that took his father, Michael Rossman, and to kick off his fundraiser for RVH’s Hearts & Minds campaign.
Hearts & Minds is an initiative to raise $25 million for five priority areas – advanced cardiac care, child and youth mental health, women’s cancer services, equipment, teaching and research. The successful campaign has already surpassed the halfway mark.
