North Bay’s Noah Dugas passed away in 2020, but since he was an organ donor, the lives of seven people were saved.
Noah was a 13-year-old defenceman who played for the North Bay Trappers major peewee AAA team. After he felt unwell during a game in March 2020, he was sent to hospital in Ottawa, and then to Toronto’s Sick Kids, where he began losing mobility in his arms and legs.
Doctors believe he had a blood clot in his brain which led to a stroke. He died in November of that year.
