The A Clear View ~ digital mammography campaign has received a huge boost.

Starting the drive to the next fundraising milestone was TECK in Sparwood whose corporate donation of $75,000 has taken the mammography campaign to over $700,000.

Nic Milligan, Manager Community & Aboriginal Affairs for TECK shares, “We are committed to community engagement and investment in the places where we live and work. We aim to develop open, honest and respectful relationships and partnerships with the communities in which we explore, construct and operate.  Bringing this leading edge technology to the East Kootenay Regional Hospital certainly will contribute to the betterment of health care in the East Kootenay.”

The $75,000 gift wasn’t the only contribution the mining, mineral processing and metallurgical company surprised EKFH with.   “We were pleased to make a large corporate contribution but when we heard about the local I’m a Breast Buddy event at the Fernie Ski Hill, we also decided to help the event organizer by providing support by producing pledge forms, posters and sponsoring the t-shirts,” explains Nic Milligan.

The support from the Elk Valley has been overwhelming this last week.  From East Kootenay Foundation for Health’s perspective there is no doubt that this show of support by many organizations and individuals living in the Elk Valley confirm they truly believe in regional health care as well as their own hospital.

Thank you TECK for making the drive for digital stereotactic mammography one step closer to reality.
