Our frontline workers have been at the forefront of 2020. The needs of our hospitals has been made evident.

This year the Moose FM Community Cares Radiothon will be supporting the hospital foundations in both Kapuskasing AND Hearst. You’ll get to decide which foundation your donation goes to.

In Kapuskasing, the foundation is in need of an upgrade to their Mammography System. This is a machine that helps in the early detection of breast cancer. The current one was purchased in 2008 and has outlived it’s 10 year lifespan. The current operating hardware AND software are no longer supported and at times the machine will freeze requiring a reboot. The purchase of a new machine will help prevent that from happening. The cost of a new machine? Roughly $305, 000 with the foundation looking to contribute $150, 000 of that.

In Hearst, the Notre-Dame Hospital Foundation is looking to improve their physiotherapy department. Their project aims to bring many advances and changes to the department including:

  • Cardiac rehabilitation training to therapists, appropriate groups and individual classes for community members.
  • Expansion of the department including training space for clients with state of the art fitness equipment
  • Larger treatment rooms, including 1 or 2 private rooms for confidentiality.

The Moose FM Community Cares Radiothon is from 6am to 6pm on Friday December 11th.
