A fight for life or death: Allan’s four months in ICU

What at first seemed a normal chest infection, soon led to four months in the Intensive Care Unit for Peninsula Health patient Allan Fox.
Diagnosed with Guillain-Barre syndrome, a disorder where the body’s immune system damages nerves, weakens muscles and can leave the body paralyzed, Allan, his family and the staff in our ICU fought hard to bring him back from the brink.
“You don’t think you need ICU until you do,” says Allan, “and when you get there, you want to be sure they are going to take care of you the best way they can.”
You can help us provide exceptional care to patients like Allan by funding lifesaving equipment for our ICU.
