Hats off to the IODE ladies

A massive heart felt thank you to the wonderful ladies of the IODE... Shirley Tennant, Sharon Fletcher, Heather Cox and Linda Lussier who met Dr. Nic Sparrow in KLH ER recently to present KERPA with a cheque for $7500.

"This is an amazingly generous donation and we can now afford to purchase a portable ultrasound device to the take to the road side of critically injured trauma patients in our community," said Dr. Nic Sparrow.

"We will be able to diagnosis punctured lungs and bleeding internal organs right on scene."

On behalf of KERPA we would like to thank the ladies of the IODE, Kokanee Chapter.

To find out more about what they do please visit www.iode.ca - they need more volunteers here in Nelson.
