British talk-show host Piers Morgan was very active on Twitter Thursday for World Cancer Day as he pledged to donate to various cancer charities and hospitals — including The Ottawa Hospital.

It came after Twitter user @pbechervaise asked him to match her $25,000 donation.

He agreed, pledging part of that to the Ottawa institution that treated her.

Morgan also pledged to donate to British hospitals and charities for World Cancer Day.

The Ottawa Hospital, which includes three hospital campuses, showed its gratitude shortly thereafter.

World Cancer Day is marked on Feb. 4 each year.
