Dr. Samir Shaheen-Hussain, pediatric emergency physician at the MCH, was the Montreal Canadiens Hero of the Game on December 1st for his successful #aHand2Hold campaign. He is one of the doctors who started the campaign to ensure all children across the province are accompanied by a family member during medical emergencies requiring air-transport. Most of these children come from northern remote Quebec communities and were transported to hospitals without a family member, leaving them alone and scared, while their parents were forced to take another flight all while not knowing if their child would live or die.
