This year’s goal is to have 50 participants raise $100,000 for equipment that will help diagnose, treat, and comfort patients with cancer at the Fort St. John Hospital. These donations allow the Foundation to respond to immediate equipment needs that will help patients with cancer remain in Fort St. John whenever possible.
With funds raised from the 2015 and 2016 Bluey Day events, the Foundation was able to fund $150,000 towards the MRI which is schedule to be installed later on this year.
The Foundation’s first Bluey Day was held in 1998, and through the generosity of donors, over $1.6 million has been raised for cancer diagnostic, treatment, and care equipment. One hundred percent of those funds have stayed in the community to support patients with cancer.
