  • From Jessica Ryan

    Being diagnosed at age 23 a young woman’s life began to unravel and change more than she could have ever expected.  Diagnosed with stage 3 cancer Jamie Carswell fought through every hurdle and obstacle in her way!

    Jamie faces challenges that only very few have to undertake, and time and time again continues to battle the disease.  At age 29 she became a mom and had a dear friend carry a child for her as, the disease made that challenging.  Now age 34 Jamie continues to battle her 4th bout with cancer over her 11 years of diagnosis.  This life-altering disease has left her a single mom to a 5 year old son and she now requires daily homecare by her mother Pauline Carswell.  Pauline is known in Red Deer by her many years of competitive and leisure leagues at The Red Deer Curling Club.  Her Father Robert Carswell owns and operated the non profit Red Deer Boxing Club for over 30 years in Red Deer.  Both her parents help raise her son alongside her as well as reside together.  Three generations living in one home, and not the usual way we are taught to view life.  Her mother attends to her daily needs and this has proven difficult in a home filled with barriers that have given little accessibility to continue care at home.

    Currently they are building a wheelchair accessible home to help ease and support her daily life.  This home will provide the required access for her future, while providing a forever home for her son to grow up in.

    The Event will be held November 24, 2018 – 7:00 pm at Elephant & Castle Pub and Restaurant #500 Timberlands Drive, Red Deer.
    (Dinner available 5:00 pm onward with pre-sale tickets)

    We are pre-selling tickets which will include : Pub Classic Dinner menu ( excluding Pub Steak) and live entertainment.
    We will be having door prize, raffle items, silent auction and more.

    We ask you to invest in our mission by attending or contributing to our fundraiser Pub night.

    We have a account set up for those that want to contribute but cannot make the event.

    Your participation as a sponsor of cash donation, goods or services will help ensure that three generations of family are given financial help for medical costs, loss of income, costs to raise a child, and future needs for their forever home.  These financial burdens are greatly stressful on everyone involved.  I am making it my mission to alleviate some of these factors causing daily concern for the family.

    With the help from our community we can take part in the mission and we can do it together!

    Thank you for helping us reach our goals!

    Watch: Buy a Red Deer Hospital Lottery ticket and change the way meds are dispensed at Red Deer Regional

  • Red Deer Hospital Lottery 2019 Cause:  Pyxis Medstations

    Pyxis Medstations are automated medication dispensing units with numerous electronic features to ensure safety, accuracy and efficiency.

    In our hospital, over 1,000 new medication orders are written by prescribers and processed every day. 13,000 units of medication are dispensed on the care areas every 24 hours. The process for dispensing this medication is paper-based and manual with nurses selecting medication from a patient drawer or from the unit supply.

    Patient safety is of utmost concern in our hospital, and the Pyxis system will help ensure the best possible healthcare for Central Albertans. Automated medication dispensing will ensure possible allergies, drug interactions, and duplicates in therapy are reviewed before medication is given, reduce the chances of a patient receiving the wrong medication, only allow access to medications approved for that patient, warn if a medication is selected too early or too late for a patient, provide additional instruction and information on medications to healthcare providers, enhance communication between the pharmacy and nursing.

    The technology will further ensure medication dispensing safety with ‘bedside medication verification’. Once a medication has been selected for a patient, the nurse will scan the patient file at the bedside before administering the medication to that patient.2019 proceeds will be used to purchase Pyxis Medstations for use in emergency, the intensive care unit, operating room, recovery room, unit 22 (cardiology), & other critical care areas at the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre.

    Chair of the Child Advocacy Centre puts out a call for volunteers for Thursday event

  • Hi my friends.  As most of you know I’m the Chair of the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Center and we’ve been running a Home Lottery Campaign.

    We’ve had to extend the draw because we have to sell quite a few more tickets.  The support from the community has been great but we have to do more.

    I’m looking for 100 people to volunteer this coming Thursday night to go door to door and sell tickets.  If you or possibly some of your staff or co workers would be able to help out, that would be awesome.  

    Anyone interested can email me at Terry@abbeyplatinum.ca or text me at 403-896 3675

    We are going to meet at the Sheraton Hotel at 5:30 pm on Thursday March 21 in the Palermo Room to get credentials, information and ticket forms.

    More information when I get a list of people. There will be some prizes for most sold etc.

    I really appreciate the help for this great cause. We have looked after over 450 children in just over a year in Central Alberta. https://cacaclottery.ca

    From Todayville 

    Since it opened 16 months ago, the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre has served over 440 children from more than 50 different communities.  The Child Advocacy Centre is raising funds to build a facility specifically for their purpose of bringing healing to the lives of children who have been abused.  Support from all these communities will be critical.

    The Advocacy Centre “must” sell more tickets!  If you’ve already made your purchase you can still help.  Make sure your friends and loved ones know about this lottery.  Please do your best to spread the news to your contacts in Edmonton and Calgary and around the province.  So many people would love a chance to own a new home for just $35 dollars.
