North Coast Health Improvement Society Hits their Fundraising Mark

Over the top!
It's another successful fundraising
effort for the North Coast
Health Improvement Society
The thermometer on the front of Prince Rupert City Hall tells the story of another successful round of fundraising for the North Coast Health Improvement Society, with the local group blasting through their goal of 200,000 dollars towards fundraising for upgrades to the Cancer Care Unit at the Prince Rupert Regional Hospital.

The Society hailed the successful fundraising effort on Thursday with a post to their Facebook page to thank those that helped them reach their goal and to note that the upgrade work is already underway.

The fundraising program was launched in January of 2018 and at the time the Society highlighted how the monies raised would be put towards upgrades in treatment technology, increased comfort for patients and families, as well as to add functional privacy for the Cancer Care Unit.

The unit at Prince Rupert Regional Hospital administers radiation treatments and offers preventive screening programs, as well as to offer counselling for patients and families.

And while they have met their goal for the project, that doesn't mean that residents of the North Coast need stop with the donations, a quick look at the Society's Facebook page provides a glimpse of some of the many initiatives that they have taken on since the organization was founded back in 2002.
