Physician colleagues coordinate donations for the family of Dr. Elana Fric

TORONTO, Dec. 5, 2016 /CNW/ - Members of the medical community have set up a crowdfunding page and trust fund to honour Dr. Elana Fric and assist her family over the coming weeks, months, and years. 

On behalf of the Fric family, thank you for honouring the memory of Dr. Fric and supporting her children.


A You Caring crowdfunding page has been set up to help ensure that the immediate needs of Dr. Fric's children are met. All funds collected here will be directly available to the Fric family.

Trust Fund
A trust fund is being put in place to assist with the long-term financial needs of Dr. Fric's children. Donations to this trust fund will be managed by MD Private Trust and will be administered by the Fric family. More information about the trust fund will be available in the coming days.

Memorial Donations

For friends and colleagues looking for additional ways to honour Dr. Fric's memory, donations can be made to The Shelter Movers of Toronto and/or The Canadian Centre for Refugee and Immigrant Health Care.

Dr. Fric was passionate about global health and equitable care for vulnerable populations including women and refugees. 

The Shelter Movers of Toronto (from its website)

The Shelter Movers of Toronto provides safe, respectful moving services at no cost to persons fleeing abusive households in Toronto, Canada. We envision a Toronto where fleeing abuse is easier, better supported and barrier-free for everyone.

The Canadian Centre for Refugee and Immigrant Health Care (from its website)

Our goal is to make sure that no one has to live without health care. While we treat approximately 60 patients every week at our Centre (that's more than 25,000 people since we opened in 1999) the sad fact is that there are still people living in our community without access to health care.
