Lyndon's Legacy Giving Back

Brent and Kristie Cross recently presented the Campbell River Hospital Foundation with a donation of $1320 to go towards an ABP Monitor for the Electrodiagnostics Department in memory of Lyndon Cross. Lyndon Cross was a social worker that worked in youth protection services. He fought a short but courageous battle with cancer with strength and determination.  He was an extremely dedicated and caring person trying to make a difference in the lives of those in foster care. It is important to those that loved Lyndon and who were touched by his life to continue his passion for making a difference.  And so the Lyndon’s Legacy Slo Pitch Tournament began.  With the help of their team, Penners Chargers, Brent and Kristie organize a tournament each year that honours Lyndon.  The proceeds from the tournament support equipment purchase at Campbell River Hospital as well as two bursaries of $2000 each that are awarded in Lyndon’s name to students at North Island College that have been in Foster Care so that they have the opportunity to continue their education.  An ABPM measures blood pressure over 24 hours to provide a more complete picture of your blood pressure.  Patients wear a special blood pressure cuff that measures and records their blood pressure at regular intervals.  The records can provide a more reliable measurement than one-off readings.  This is particularly true for patients whose blood pressure rises due to anxiety when visiting their healthcare provider.
