The Ladies Auxiliary of the Royal Canadian Legion #257 in Lantzville work throughout the year to fundraise for causes they feel inspired to support. They recently delivered $1,340 to the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation for the purchase of two cylinder carts designed to carry an oxygen cylinder for patients staying in Palliative Care.
The donated funds also covered the cost of a portable Doppler monitor, a hand-held ultrasound used to detect to detect the heartbeat of a fetus or blood flow in an artery for prenatal care. Amber said, “The work involved to raise these funds and the more than $30,000 the Ladies Auxiliary has already contributed over time, is substantial. We are grateful for this support as it will help veterans and their families directly.”
