The purchase of a new chemotherapy infusion pump is in the future as the second and third year Bachelor of Science Nursing students at Nipissing University raised $3,100 during November and December. That total surpassed last year’s amount by $1,000.
“The goal this year was to raise enough money to purchase a new infusion pump (1 of nearly 30 that will need to be replaced), and with the support of the students and faculty, and the kind generosity of local businesses, we were able to reach that goal”, said Andrew Holland, the fundraiser’s organizer.
The purchase of these new pumps will not only help to provide care to prostate cancer patients, but will benefit a wide range of clients fighting cancer.
“Recognizing the need for this new equipment, we are pleased to be able to make a difference in the health care of our community.”
Businesses involved this year included: Modern Autobody, SS Mobile Auto Service, Pine Creek Enterprises Inc, Mattawa Foodland, T. E. Parolin European Auto Sales and Tree Line Acres.
