            Grade eight students from Lindsay’s Heritage Christian School recently visited Ross Memorial Hospital to present the proceeds from the school’s fundraising activities for local cancer care.

            Accompanied by their

principal Lonneke Brown, they donated $118—in memory of Terry Fox—to help enhance diagnostic imaging services at the hospital, which are used for cancer screening, diagnosis and biopsy testing.

            The visit also became a learning opportunity when they met with RMH President and CEO Dr. Bert Lauwers and RMH Foundation Executive Director Erin Coons.

            “Here at the Ross Memorial, patients receive cancer care in many ways from imaging and surgery to pain and symptom management,” explained Lauwers.

            “We’re so touched that the students at Heritage Christian School want to help local patients. Knowing that the community is rallying behind our patients’ health inspires our patients and their families, and our team.”
