North Coast Health Improvement Society edges closer to Cancer Care goal

The fundraising efforts of the North Coast Health Improvement Society are continuing to pay off, with the organization now close to halfway to its goal for funding to renovate and upgrade the Cancer Care Unit at the Prince Rupert Regional Hospital.

The latest item from the group makes note of the fundraising thermometer that will be placed at City Hall, providing residents of the city with a quick update on the progress of the fundraising program

Donations large and small have been coming into the Society during the course of this fundraising drive which started in January, with a number of members of Prince Rupert's corporate community leading the way with some significant assistance.

The Cancer Care Unit provides care for over 800 patients per year, with the renovations planned designed to increase the comfort for patients and families and to provide for some functional privacy for the Cancer Care Unit.

Donations can be made to the Society as follows:

PO Box 326
Prince Rupert, BC
V8J 3P9
Attention: Cancer Care unit

Tax receipts are available for all donations.

You can find out more about their fundraising plans from the NCHIS Facebook page
