Telethon Chair, Wayne Blackwell noted that it was the businesses, corporations, private citizens and the communities that stepped forward, together, to raise funds for this much needed Palliative Care Program that operates out of Brockville General Hospital (BGH). Mr. Blackwell also spoke about the time, and effort, the committee dedicates each year to support the consult nurses who make the palliative care program what it is.
