On Thursday, November 2nd, 2017 I had the pleasure of attending the fifth annual Party for Pain, an evening to support, enhance and improve the Michael G. DeGroote Pain Clinic located at the Hamilton Health Sciences Hospital.
As part of the event, I was able to participate in a Dancing with the Hamilton Stars dance competition and proudly raised over $7,800 to support the night’s cause!
Watch my full performance below.
This fundraiser was more than just an opportunity to challenge myself and learn a dance routine to perform in front of 500 people. As a personal injury lawyer, I have devoted my practice to helping individuals who have sustained serious and complex injuries and I am keenly aware of the devastating impact that chronic pain has on my clients’ lives. I am passionate about supporting causes and organizations devoted to helping enhance patients’ quality of life and raising awareness of important issues, such as the Michael G. DeGroote Pain Clinic.
For more information on how the Michael G. DeGroote Pain Clinic is helping people in the community, watch this CHCH Morning Live segment featuring Dianne Deloose, who is a patient at the clinic and Kathleen Gallagher, a case manager and occupational therapist at the clinic.
