In July 2011, Thomas was emergency airlifted to VGH from Powell River, BC, after falling unconscious in a public place. He discovered he had a malignant brain tumor and underwent brain surgery at VGH. Grateful for the care he received,  he made a donation to the unit by designating his tax-free savings account (TSFA) to VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation.

“My nurses wanted to provide better patient care and I wanted to give them what they needed to do it.”
