WDMH Cancer patient gives back


Debra Maclean has been on a journey, and says the team at Winchester District Memorial Hospital has been with her every step of the way. Now she wants to give back and is organizing ‘A Night of Entertainment’ to show her appreciation.

The event takes place on Saturday, February 15, beginning at 6:30 pm at The Old Town Hall in Winchester. The headliner for the evening is Andrew Chapman – winner of the Top Canadian Comedy Album Award. Andrew will MC the show, as well as provide one of his stand-up routines suitable for all ages. In addition, well known magician David Jans and 60’s Rock Band “The Lads” will be performing. There will be a door prize, light refreshments, as well as silent and live auctions.

“For the duration of my treatment, I am very happy to say I received excellent care from nurses, physicians, technicians and additional personnel at Winchester District Memorial Hospital. They all helped to make my journey as easy as possible,” explains Debra. The ‘A Night of Entertainment’ fundraiser is our way of saying “Thank You” to the wonderful staff at this incredible teaching hospital.”

“It’s going to be a special night, and the money will be directed to the Foundation’s Cancer Care Fund to support equipment purchases and other needs. I’m very much looking forward to the evening,” adds Kristen Casselman, the Foundation’s Managing Director.

“It will definitely be a Night of Entertainment, and I hope everyone can join us!” sums up Debra. “Registered Nurses Callie and Penny in the WDMH chemotherapy department are my angels. I was overwhelmed by their care and am so grateful.”

Tickets are $50.00 each, with three performances for the price of one. This wonderful event is nearly sold out! To order tickets, call 613-806-0690. Tickets can also be picked up at the Foundation office in the front lobby of the hospital.
