Cathy Morse: Fundraiser extraordinaire and Ayrianna Jacques: who works with Cathy at the Chop Shop and also worked very hard on the fundraiser.

On Wednesday, March 20th, the final tally was complete for the 2013 Cuts for Cancer fundraiser.  This year’s fundraiser surpassed $27,026.11.  Total donations obtained over the years the Cuts for Cancer fundraiser is pushing up to the $140,000 level, with funds going to the Drumheller Health Care’s Community Cancer Clinic and the Palliative Care unit.    This fundraiser has enabled the purchase of a VersaCare bed with Air surface, a Hill Rom Bariatric Total Care Plus Air Bed, Palliative Care room renovations, Special Needs funding for patients in distress, special medication, comfort items for both the Cancer patients and Palliative care patients and much more.

The support of the community for this event and the Drumheller Health Centre is phenomenal.  Thank you Drumheller for all you do!
