Legacy Of Providing Comfort For Patients Lives On
Windsor ON – Dr. Jaideep Rampure, “Jay” as most knew him, was a loving husband and father who was always quick to laugh and add positivity into any conversation. He was also an exceptional physician. After his passing in July 2019, his wife Rita, and sons Suraj and Chirag, wanted to honour Jay by gifting a lasting legacy to the place that provided great care to him during his cancer treatments.
Rita learned that there was a need for chemotherapy beds, and she and her sons agreed to fund the purchase of a bed for patients receiving chemotherapy treatment at the Windsor Regional Cancer Centre. Their loving gesture would be of great benefit to many patients during their lengthy treatments. Jay’s family took solace in knowing his legacy would make an invaluable impact.
Once she discovered there was a need for not only one, but five beds at the Windsor Regional Cancer Centre, Rita knew what their next steps would be.
“Knowing that there was a need for five new beds, I decided I could not support the purchase of just one and leave out the other four.” Rita and her boys, funded the cost of all five beds, “in memory of my loving husband” she said.
Jay will always be remembered as an exceptional physician who advocated for his patients. And now his legacy of providing comfort to patients will live on, even after his passing.
Dr. Jaideep Rampure’s legacy donation totaled $89,000.
