A fund raiser is being held Saturday evening to improve the chemotherapy room at the Flin Flon General Hospital. Organizer Tracee Reimer explains as a patient she’s noticed they spend most of their day receiving treatment and our chemotherapy room is in need of some upgrades so she’s holding a non-profit benefit fund raiser for the cost of the upgrades needed to improve our chemotherapy room here in Flin Flon.
Reimer adds last year Canadian Cancer Society statistics showed that one in two Canadians will develop some form of cancer in their lifetime so her idea is that patients receiving chemotherapy could relax in a more warm, comfortable, pleasing atmosphere while receiving treatment. The fund raiser is being held at the Unwinder in the Victoria Inn Saturday from 6 to 9 with door prizes, healthy food draws, a 50-50 draw and music by Shotgun Monkey. Tickets are ten dollars and are available at Northern Rainbows End on Main Street and Di’s Confectionary in Creighton.
