A Day Like No Other

On July 6, 2021, Will got up and went to work, no different than any other day. He certainly didn't expect what came next, nor were his parents ready for the call they received that day. Their son was critically injured in a job site accident and was on his way to the hospital via ambulance.

Will's left leg had been caught between two 28 inch pipes, breaking his femur. Will received surgery from the highly skilled Orthopedic Surgical department at the Northern Lights Hospital. The specialized team has access to some of the world’s best equipment thanks to donor funding from the Northern Lights Health Foundation. The impact of your donations made a tremendous impact on Will.

When a loved one is injured or ill, having the compassionate care of a skilled medical team with the access to the best equipment helps family members feel confident their loved one is receiving the best care possible.

"The hospital was there when we needed it! The nurses and doctor were amazing. We can't say thank you enough," explains Linda Oldford, Will's mom.

Will is doing extremely well. He is continuing physio 3 times a week, walking with a cane and is back driving. "We never expected to see him progressing so well," says Jeff, Will's dad. "We owe it to the exceptional level of care he received and for that care being right here.”

The Oldford Family expressed their gratitude and appreciation with a Grateful Patient Donation.

"Thank you for doing everything you could to heal our Son - We are forever grateful!' The Oldford Family.
