STARS refers to the people they’ve helped as VIPs or Very Important Patients. Every former patient they’ve assisted and every life they’ve saved has resulted in an impactful story, some of which will be showcased here as part of ‘STARS VIP Voices’.

Christian Toupin is one of those VIPs. A car accident on a remote country road resulted in the need for Christian to get to Health Sciences Centre a lot faster than an ambulance could. With help from STARS, he was able to make a successful recovery that helped him get back to a normal life. To learn more about Christian’s incident and how STARS provided essential support, listen to the audio below.
