Success Stories


The Miracle Team

When minutes count, the state-of-the-art biplane angiography suite at RUH makes a difference.

Just ask Peggy Benko, a Regina lawyer.

January 7, 2015, started out just like any other day at her law office. She had no sign that an aneurism in her brain was about to burst and she would have a stroke, or that she would then be rushed to a Regina hospital, flown by STARS air ambulance to the provincial stroke team at RUH, stabilized twice while en route, then undergo a six-hour procedure to stop the bleeding.

“I don’t remember collapsing. It was a normal day. I didn’t have a headache, I wasn’t dizzy, I just collapsed,” Peggy says.

Read the rest of Peggy's story in our 2014-2015 Annual Report.
