This is the 18th holiday season that will see us Light the Way! We’re inviting you, your family and friends, to join us in making this a very special and memorable occasion. 

Light the Way is a meaningful way to recognize those special to us, provide joy to those who must remain in hospital over the holidays, and help the Foundation purchase needed equipment for our hospital.

Throughout November and December, you may purchase a
light, wreath, snowman or angel and dedicate it in memory, or in honour, of someone special to you.

In some cases you need no other reason than “just because.” 

Your Light the Way lights and ornaments will be lit during a special ceremony on Wednesday, November 25th, 2015 at the Cumberland Regional Health Care Centre (CRHCC), starting at 5:30 pm. 

There will be animated lights dancing to music, singing, children’s activities, refreshments and a special visit by Mr. & Mrs. Claus! Come with family and friends to this wonderful holiday celebration!

Parking is free for the evening.

As always, your lights and ornaments will be lit throughout the holiday season for hospital patients, staff and visitors to enjoy, and as a tribute to you and your loved ones. 


It’s All about Hearts! Proceeds from this year’s event will assist the Cumberland Health Care Foundation in purchasing five pieces of heart-related equipment for the Cumberland Regional Health Care Centre. Each piece replaces and updates equipment currently in use but that is getting closer to the end of its serviceable life. The total value of these much needed items is $84,450


 A cardiac, SAO2 (blood oxygen saturation),
blood pressure monitor for the Operating Room.  
Total cost: $24,500

       Two dual-chamber external pulse generators
(temporary pacemakers) for the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). 
Total cost: $10,700

       Two defibrillators – one for the Emergency Department
and the other for the ICU.
Total cost:  $49,250 

The CRHCC prides itself in offering the highest level of care for our patients and in providing our medical staff the best tools possible for their work. By keeping current with equipment and technology we attract top level physicians and technologists to our facility which in turn benefits those requiring our services. 

Light the Way is the most important fundraising event for the Foundation’s Equipment Fund. With your support we will be able to continue providing new and replacement equipment so it will be here when you need it most. Your donation to Light the Way is important to current and future patients and their families. Donations of $5 or more are tax deductible and all gifts post-marked by December 31st will receive a 2015 income tax receipt.

Please invite friends and family members to participate in this event!
You can help to spread the spirit of hope for patients and their families
while also honouring those most special to you.

Please consider helping us Light the Way! 

On behalf of the Board of Directors, volunteers and staff of the Cumberland Health Care Foundation, warmest wishes for a holiday season filled with peace, love, and happiness.
