Mary Anne Komaran, Kasey Kozak, and Thomas and Melanie Nakatsui have all generously made the decision to give a gift to the Royal Alexandra Hospital, in the form of a bequest. A bequest is a gift made in your will that can help express your wishes and interests. With careful planning, a legacy gift such as a bequest may allow you to make a much larger gift than otherwise possible.
“Thanks to Mary Anne’s generosity, we are able to go further with exceptional
patient care at the Royal Alexandra Hospital. Mary Anne certainly
made an impact with her decades of social work at the Royal Alex, and the
thoughtful legacy she has built will ensure that she continues to have an impact
for years to come.” - Andrew Otway, President and CEO of the Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation
"When you support healthcare, you support the entire community and help many people, so it was a good choice for me to name the Royal Alexandra Hospital as the beneficiary in my will." - Kasey Kozak
Thomas and Melanie Nakatsui are already great supporters of the Royal Alexandra Hospital. They have a daughter, Natalie, that is ten years old, but before they had Natalie, Melanie was pregnant but had a stillbirth. This traumatizing event made Melanie and Thomas hesitant to have another child, but they continued to try. With success, and reassurance found at the Royal Alexandra Hospital, they had Natalie. Through Natalie's childhood, Thomas and Melanie continued to get more involved in the Royal Alexandra Hospital. Melanie is a board member of the Foundation, a co-chair of the newly founded Lois Hole Hospital Women's Society, and her and her husband are very involved in events put on by the Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation. Thomas and Melanie have also left a legacy in their will for the foundation.
