Dr. REM Lee Hospital Foundation nears $50,000 goal

The donation will help purchase a colposcope for Mills Memorial Hospital

The Dr. REM Lee Hospital Foundation is a little bit closer to their $50,000 goal to purchase a colposcope for Mills Memorial Hospital.

At the 2020 Mining Round Up conference in Vancouver this past January, the hospital foundation received $1,960 from raffle organized by Seabridge Gold at their annual reception fundraiser.

Approximately 200 guests participated in the raffle in hopes of winning the grand prize of a half-ounce gold coin, along with other art items by Northwest Indigenous artists.

The cheque presented to the Dr. REM Lee Hospital Foundation will almost reach their $50,000 goal for their 2019 project of purchasing the colposcope for early cervical cancer screening for women’s health at Mills Memorial Hospital.

In an email to the Terrace Standard, the chair of the Dr. REM Lee Hospital Foundation Ron Bartlett expressed his gratitude towards Seabridge employee Taryn Cutler for organizing the raffle and the team for supporting healthcare in northern B.C.

Seabridge Gold is a gold mining company in Canada that is currently operating one of the largest internationally-known undeveloped gold ambitions, known as the Kerr-Sulphurets-Mitchell (KSM) Project, in the Tahltan Nation’s territory — which includes 70 per cent of B.C’.s so-called Golden Triangle.
