Fort St. John Hospital Foundation is proud to partner with Moose FM once again for the highly anticipated Light a Moose Radiothon, scheduled to take place from November 15-17, 2023.  Broadcasting live from 5:30 am to 6 pm at the Chances Casino Fort St. John parking lot, this annual event aims to make a significant impact on the healthcare community.

This year, we are thrilled to announce the support of esteemed corporate sponsors, Mustang Rentals, NorthRiver Midstream, and PETRONAS Canada who have graciously pledged to match donations totaling $20,000 each.  With their contribution, and the unwavering support of our community, the FSJ Hospital Foundation is confident we will reach our record-breaking fundraising goal of $175,000.

With the funds raised though the Light a Moose Radiothon the FSJ Hospital Foundation will purchase a Phillips Epiq Elite Ultrasound machine valued at $175,000 for the Medical Imaging Department at the FSJ Hospital.  Through careful consideration, we have identified this equipment as crucial in addressing the growing demands of our patient population.  The introduction of a new ultrasound machine will enable the department to accommodate an additional 1,820 to 2,600 patients annually.

Kelly Amboe, Executive Director of the FSJ Hospital Foundation, emphasized the significance of the acquisition, stating, “The Phillips Epiq Elite Ultrasound Machine will significantly enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of the Medical Imaging Department at FSJ Hospital. It will not only reduce waiting times for patients but also ensure that crucial diagnostic procedures are carried out in a timely manner.”

The FSJ Hospital Foundation and the Moose FM Crew invites the entire community to join us in supporting this noble cause.  Donations can be made now by calling the Foundation at 250.793.0998, or online at Canada Helps’ website, or visiting us on location at Chances Casino FSJ.  We are proud to share that 100% of the funds raised will stay in Fort St. John, and all donations of $20 and above are eligible for a Charitable Tax Receipt.

Together, let’s light up Fort St. John with compassion and generosity, as we make a profound difference in the lives of patients in our community.
