Some events can change your life forever. Jeff Pond, owner of London Home Respiratory Inc., lived through such an event in 1991 as his 6-month old daughter, Kristine, lay struggling to breathe at Londons’Childrens Hospital. “It was a very touch-and-go situation, and there were times when we weren’t sure if Krissy would survive,” says Pond.
Krissy did survive, and is healthy today; thanks in part to the home care Respiratory Therapist who provided home recovery treatment for Krissy following her stay in the hospital. And it’s that very same therapist that Pond credits for the inspiration to pursue his chosen career. After witnessing his daughter’s recovery, Pond enrolled in the Registered Respiratory Therapist program at Fanshawe College.
