Sheila McKay Cancer Care Legacy Fund

To mark the ten-year anniversary of the Mud Creek Toonie Toss, Valley Regional Hospital Foundation, in partnership with the Rotary Club of Wolfville – Mud Creek, is proud to announce the Sheila McKay Cancer Care Legacy Fund. Sheila was a long-time Rotarian who founded the Mud Creek Rotary 50/50 Toonie Toss in 2013.

Upon learning of a cancer diagnosis, families have to adjust their lifestyles to accommodate treatment plans, medical appointments and hospital visits. Patients experience a variety of pressures which can impact their care and recovery.

The Sheila McKay Cancer Care Legacy Fund supports patients who are experiencing financial difficulty as they undergo cancer treatment at Valley Regional Hospital, while celebrating the legacy of Sheila McKay and the difference a toonie can make.

This partnership will help sustain current supports available through Valley Regional Hospital Foundation’s Cancer Care for Patients Fund (i.e. the provision of gas and grocery gift cards to patients in need) and will enable complimentary parking as an additional support for those patients. All donations will be matched by Mud Creek Rotary up to $25,000 per year.
