"Many years ago, my Father Archie Snowball came to St. Paul’s for cancer treatment and eventually passed away at St. Paul’s in room 1047. At that time the Indigenous Health and Wellness Program did not exist and my father would have loved the type of support that we provide for people today. I felt that when this opportunity to work here at St. Paul’s was presented to me, it was a beautiful sign that my father was guiding me to this type of work. I am an active member of my community/family and practice my culture every day. I support my community as if they are family, because they are family [...] Supporting each other and lifting each other up is culturally what we do as Indigenous people.” Rose M., Indigenous Health Worker, St. Paul’s Hospital
