s a patient at Chilliwack General Hospital, Stanley Ross enjoyed spending time outside on the fourth floor patio. Unfortunately, over the years the polycarbonate panels surrounding the patio had discoloured and become hazy, distorting the view of the mountains he so loved.

Stanley’s widow, Lily, recently honoured his wishes to remedy the situation for others by making a donation to the Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation to replace the dated panels.

"As the official charity for the Chilliwack General Hospital, the Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation doesn’t just raise funds for medical equipment," said Vicki Raw, executive director, "we also support patient comforts, programs, renovations and items, such as these panels, that help to create a healing environment."
