Tree of Lights Campaign
As the Christmas season approaches, so does what has become an annual tradition in the Madawaska Valley, the Tree of Lights Campaign and Celebration.
This Campaign is always a very meaningful because it gives us the opportunity to honour someone special or remember a loved one by purchasing a bulb in their name, and at the same time, give the precious gift of health.
Your support this year will make an impact on the precious lives of many patients who depend on the St Francis Memorial Hospital to be there for them or their loved ones when it comes to heart health.
Whether you are a year round or seasonal resident, there are few of us that have not been touched by the St Francis Memorial Hospital in some way. Having 24 hour access to Emergency and Medical services eliminates the one hour plus drive to the next hospital, which can be stressful and literally life threatening, especially when it comes to matters of the heart. Precious patient lives have been saved at St Francis, and keeping it well equipped helps us to continue to save many more.
Did you know that in Renfrew County the number of interventions as a result of heart disease is almost 20% higher than the provincial average? Furthermore, it is also quite alarming that heart disease and stroke are one of the leading causes of death for Canadian Women!
