An estimated 11,000 Ontarians have died while waiting for surgeries, MRIs and CT scans in the past year.

Jordanna Bialo, a 38-year old patient who became sick in October 2020, is one of many patients who are fearfully navigating the current healthcare system desperately searching for an answer.

“I’m medically burnt out. It’s a fight. I have a little son, he’s five years old, and I promised him I would be at his wedding,” said Bialo. “That’s why I fight – for my family. It’s a full time job. It’s a full time job to be a patient right now.”

It took three years for doctors to diagnose Bialo with a rare genetic tumour syndrome called Cowden syndrome.
