Ladies of the Eastern Star have very Warm Hearts

Cancer is the Easter Star charity throughout British Columbia and have raised thousands of dollars for research, free cancer dressings, cancer treatment equipment, medical books and scholorships for oncology doctors.  Since 1994, the local Campbell River Chapter has donated more than $12,000 to support Cancer Care at Campbell River Hospital. Most recently they donated in support of the library and purchased a blanket warmer for the Cancer Care Department.  The library provides resource materials to patients and their families in the treatment and fight against cancer, while a warm blanket can help to provide a sense of comfort and calmness.
