Power Pioneers make gift for Mammography Unit

Submitted by EKFH on 30-09-2011

Ken Dodgson, President of the Kootenay Branch of BC Hydro Power Pioneers proudly hands over a donation of $500 to East Kootenay Foundation for Health’s Executive Director Donna Grainger.   Over the next two years EKFH is taking on its biggest fundraising challenge with a $1 million capital campaign called “A Clear View ~ a digital mammography campaign”.   Since no government funding is available, it is donors that will make this dream a reality.    The current mammography unit is eleven years old and utilizes soon to be out-of-date film technology. The current unit also does not allow minimally invasive image guided biopsy.   .   If you would like to make a difference in the fight against breast cancer, please consider a donation today. Visit EKFH’s secured website at www.ekfh.ca or call Donna toll-free at: 1-877-489-6481 or 250-489-6481.
