Giving back and looking forward

Jim Schneider

After working in the insurance industry for 40 years, Jim Schneider knows a thing or two about looking after his future. That’s why he’s been a Hospitals of Regina Foundation donor for the past 22 years.

Jim started supporting the Foundation well before he experienced health challenges.

“I thought I should help ensure our hospitals have the resources they need to look after us,” Jim said. “If we don’t make that investment, who will? Also, being on a monthly donation plan (since 2014) makes it easy, and affordable.”

Jim is thankful for the care he received in Regina’s hospitals. Between 2009 and 2013, he had prostate cancer surgery, triple hernia surgery and heart surgery (five bypasses) to repair a blocked artery.

“It was an emotional time,” Jim confides. “I was just getting used to being retired, and then it was literally one health issue after another.”

Meanwhile, he’s maintained a busy lifestyle, including playing an active role in his church and senior’s group, and he plays bingo regularly.

“The Foundation is grateful for the support of regular donors like Jim,” said Lisa Green, vice-president, development.

“He’s living proof of the better lives that people can live when we invest in local health care.”
