Light the Trees to Fight Colon Cancer

By News

Watch the video featuring Dr. Daniel Jenkin, General Surgeon, to learn why the new surgical suite for the Endoscopy Department at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital is so urgently needed for our community. We need to raise $1 million this Christmas to reach our goal and build this addition to the hospital which is vital in the fight against colon cancer. The more donations we receive, the more lights that will be lit outside the main entrance to NRGH. Please donate today. Thank you!

Collective Creativity

By Thank You!
Thank you to the Nanoose Quilters for the beautiful quilt that will provide warmth and comfort to a patient! Each month the quilters are challenged to make one square within a set theme. The squares are then collected from the members and made into quilts which they donate to charities. Fabulous!
