The sight and sound of healing campaign focuses on purchasing two microscopes, one for cataract and the other for ear, nose and throat surgeries. Byron, Helen and Eileen recently benefited from medical services involving the scopes we currently have.
We want to provide medical teams with the best new technology available for their patients’ surgeries.
Eileen, from Kentville, was recently diagnosed with a precancerous growth on her larynx. Her surgery was performed using the microscope and, when it reappeared, she required a second surgery. Now disease free, Eileen is very grateful for the early diagnosis and treatment and the fact she didn’t have to travel to Halifax for this procedure or her follow up appointments.

Our Foundation recently lost a wonderful friend, volunteer and champion.
Doug Macdonald served as President of VRH Foundation and Chair (1985-89) of the first $8 million fundraising campaign to build Valley Regional Hospital. More recently, he was a member of our campaign to raise $8 million for VRH renovations and hospice construction. Doug served as an honorary chair of our Foundation for many years.
He will be truly missed for his willingness to lend his expertise and community knowledge to support our efforts.
