Drive for The Cure Cheque Presentation
November 26, 2020: Ridge Meadows Hospital Foundation has had the privilege of partnering with the Drive for the Cure Foundation since 2004. Their donations of over $300,000 have purchased many pieces of essential equipment directly related to the early diagnosis and treatment of cancer at Ridge Meadows Hospital—making a tremendous difference to the residents of our community.
This year, we are designating their gift to a pediatric colonoscope—a smaller colonoscope used to navigate through more narrow or twisted segments of the bowel. This piece of equipment allows full exams to be completed when it is too challenging to complete the exam with a regular colonoscope.
Thank you, Drive for The Cure Foundation. Together, we will continue to provide improved patient care, as well as early detection and treatment options for our neighbours, friends, and family in the fight against cancer.
