Garron family makes historic donation to TEGH

n 1975, when Michael Garron was 13 years old and dying of a rare form of soft tissue cancer, his final wish was that he not be forgotten.

His parents, Myron and Berna Garron, promised him that wouldn’t happen. On Dec. 2, they donated $50 million to the Toronto East General Hospital (TEGH) in his memory, and made Michael’s wish come true.
