Dr. H. Bliss Murphy Cancer Care Foundation
Dr. H. Bliss Murphy Cancer Care Foundation donates $10,000 to the new Sentimag Monitor & Probe for the Dr. G.B. Cross Memorial Hospital, the first in Canada. The Discovery Health Care Foundation is truly appreciative of their support. They did not hesitate when asked to help with the purchase of this piece of equipment because they have long-standing donors in the catchment area of the Cross Memorial Hospital and wanted to give back as a gesture of partnership from their organization, for equipment that would benefit breast cancer patients, and also work with one of their other partner hospital foundations. Pictured above is Emily Geary, Senior Development Office of the Dr. H. Bliss Murphy Cancer Care Foundation presenting the cheque to Leona Piercey, Chief Development Office of Discovery Health Care Foundation.
