Hospital ‘Star’ brings warmth to the Cancer Care Department

The ladies from the Order of the Eastern Star have donated more than $12,000 to the Campbell River Hospital

A local charity branch is making things just a little bit warmer for cancer patients at Campbell River Hospital.

The Campbell River chapter of the Order of the Eastern Star recently made a donation to the hospital library and purchased a blanket warmer for the Cancer Care Department.  The library provides resource materials to patients and their families in the treatment and fight against cancer, while a warm blanket helps to provide a sense of comfort and calmness.

The Eastern Star Charity has branches throughout B.C. Since 1994, the local Campbell River chapter has donated more than $12,000 to support cancer care at Campbell River Hospital.
