On Friday, September 21, 2018, the Halaby-Ammar family gathered once again on Unit 43. They gathered in memory of Loma Halaby-Ammar to present a cheque to the Grey Nun's Hospital, with the dollars specifically going to the Palliative care unit (Unit 43). The family generously donated $60,300 which they raised through a fundraiser organized by Cycle Bar Windermere.

The 2018 Ride for Loma will be an annual fundraiser and a beacon of light for those who have lost loved ones; allowing them to gather and support one another. Look out for 2019 event news.
