Sun FM is committed to helping children in the North Okanagan, ensuring they have access to the best possible health care. In 2013, your caring support and that of others, helped to raise over $56,000. The proceeds purchased an infant resuscitator for each one of the birthing rooms in Women’s and Children’s Health Services Unit at the Vernon Jubilee Hospital 

Our goal, with your help, is to purchase 2 Vein Viewers, 1 for the Emergency Department and the other for the Pediatric Unit.  They will facilitate pediatric and infant IV access. Children can be one of the most difficult patient populations for venipuncture procedures.  Kids find the light of a Vein Viewer a pleasant distraction during the procedure, helping them relax and making the procedure go more smoothly. The placement of Vein Viewers in the Emergency Department and the Women’s and Children’s Health Services Unit will allow healthcare professionals provide the best care possible for newborn babies and kids at Vernon Jubilee Hospital.

And new this year make your donation in Armstrong as well! Visit April Lyn on location at Askews from 10-2pm in Armstrong to make a donation!
