John Doe, UF1.
Individuals who receive financial assistance from Canadian HERO are almost always happy to have us tell our volunteers and supporters who they are and what we did to help them. Sometimes however, that is not the case and we can only tell our volunteers and supporters that we helped somebody who wishes to remain anonymous.
One such person needed to have his myoelectric arm and hand repaired by the Bloorview Kids Rehab Centre. He badly needed repairs done to the hand mechanism of his myoelectric arm, needed to have the electrical contacts from the battery to the hand mechanism replaced and also needed the internal battery of the device replaced. Unfortunately he did not qualify for any funding for this work and he was unable to afford the needed repairs without help.
Canadian HERO covered the full cost of all the work needed to repair the myoelectric arm ($882.22) and the repairs were completed right away, at no cost to the recipient. Canadian HERO is working hard to make sure that people in need do not fall through the cracks.
