Thank you to the RCMP Veterans’ Association, Central Vancouver Island Division for their generous $500 donation! The funds will be used towards our campaign to build a new surgical suite for the Endoscopy Department at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital. Once built, the new suite will help reduce wait times for colonoscopies, a vital procedure for the prevention, detection and treatment of colon cancer.
