Since January, the Dr. Noble Irwin Foundation has partnered with Cabri in efforts to raise $250,000 to purchase a new digital x-ray machine.
Cabri’s current machine is film-based causing them to wait much longer for the film to develop to view scans, it is quite outdated compared to the digital machines.
They also resort to sending patients to Swift Current if they know they will need a high-quality x-ray.
Recently, the Innovation Credit Union’s Community Legacy Fund Program has granted the fundraiser $5,000, raising their total to $175,000 which is quite near their goal.
“We’re always so grateful for any amount of money that we can get towards this campaign,” says Dr. Noble Irwin’s Communications and Development Coordinator, Sara Adrian. “Every amount counts. We’re so grateful that Innovation is even just bringing more light to our campaign, letting more people know that it’s happening and that they can donate.”
The money will not only go towards a digital x-ray machine but also an updated room to accommodate the new technology. All of which will be placed at the Prairie Public Health Care Centre.
The fundraiser hopes to have their goal met before the end of the 2021 year, but are focused on meeting their goal more than the time it’s met by.
