Medical Groundbreakers: Official First Day Cover – Dr. Balfour Mount


Product # 414155131

Celebrate the compassionate work of Dr. Balfour Mount with this Official First Day Cover.

Dr. Mount advocated for a whole-person approach to health care that addresses not only pain and symptom management but also the psychological, social and spiritual suffering of people with a terminal illness and their families.

He founded the world’s first comprehensive palliative care service based in a teaching hospital, at McGill University’s Royal Victoria Hospital, in 1975. His work has meant that patients and their families experience dignity and compassion while facing some of their greatest challenges.

This Official First Day Cover bears a commemorative cancel that includes the day of issue and the city where Dr. Mount made his notable contributions – Montréal, QC.
