We're thrilled to see a new Hector Vega piece finally dedicated at Macdonald Women's Hospital. "Where Hope is Born" is a beautiful reminder of the women and children we've dedicated our lives to supporting. 

Iris recalled her reaction when she first saw the completed statue.

“I couldn’t believe how beautiful it was and when I saw my name and Mort’s on the statue, I cried,” she said.

Remembering Mort and celebrating his life was a major part of the dedication. Without his willingness to give to the community, this would not have happened.

“There was so much joy in the room,” said Iris. “I was so happy that everyone had so many fond memories of him.”
