Fortune Fridays 50/50 Staff Lottery winner profile: Sonia Abian, Edsel Mutia and Ma Serachel Yu

Congratulations to Sonia Abian, Edsel Mutia and Ma Serachel Yu for being our latest Fortune Fridays 50/50 Staff Lottery winners!

Our 50/50 lottery is a great opportunity for staff to participate in something fun and give back to North York General Hospital (NYGH). It’s also an opportunity to shine a spotlight on the dedicated staff that make our hospital such an amazing place. We spoke with two of our lucky winners to learn more about their roles at NYGH.

Q: Aside from winning, what do you like about the staff lottery?

Sonia: I like the staff lottery because it gives NYGH staff a chance to win extra money and gives the Foundation another source of funding so more patients will be provided with the help they need.

Edsel: The lottery is a blessing to many with its dual purpose of helping the Foundation raise funds to support the hospital while also providing hospital staff with extra income.

Q: What’s your role at NYGH?

Sonia: I have been working at NYGH since March of 2008. I currently work as a registered nurse on the nursing resource team. Being part of this team is challenging because I’m regularly sent to different areas of the hospital to fill in gaps where staff are needed. But I always try to provide the best care possible to all my patients. Working at NYGH has given me the opportunity to learn more skills and build my confidence in providing care to patients in most areas where I work. Whenever a patient appreciates the care I provide, it’s a nice feeling.

Edsel: I’m an intensive care unit nurse who mostly works night shifts so I can drop my two kids off at school in the morning. My job truly gives me a sense of purpose, reminding me of the amazing impact nurses have on people’s lives.

Our next Fortune Fridays 50/50 Staff Lottery is on Friday, May 8th. The jackpot stands at $3,348 and counting. Do you want to be the next big winner, like Sonia, Edsel and Ma?
