Heritage Christian School Students support patients with cancer

Among the values taught at Heritage Christian School in Lindsay is a strong sense of community. A visit to the Ross Memorial Hospital became a learning opportunity on October 19th when grade eight HCS students met with Dr. Bert Lauwers, RMH President and CEO, and Erin Coons, RMH Foundation Executive Director.

The students, accompanied by principal Lonneke Brown, had the honour of presenting the proceeds of the school’s recent activities to raise funds for local cancer care.

“Here at the Ross Memorial, patients receive cancer care in many ways from imaging and surgery to pain and symptom management,” said Dr. Lauwers. “We’re so touched that the students at Heritage Christian School want to help local patients with their generous donation. Knowing that the community is rallying behind our patients’ health inspires our patients and their families, and our team. We’re very grateful.”

The HCS donation of $118.00, made in memory of Terry Fox, will enhance Diagnostic Imaging services at Ross Memorial Hospital, which are used for cancer screening, diagnosis and biopsy testing.
