We are The Jersey Girls, a grassroots organization that raises funds to support the highest needs in the cancer program at Juravinski Hospital and Cancer Centre. All funds raised via donation or at Jersey Girls organized events stays in our community to support those projects.
In 2023, our fundraising efforts support fully funding the purchase of an ultrasound bladder scanner machine to support the work of the Radiation Department at Juravinski Hospital and Cancer Centre. This is a $15,000 piece of equipment nearing the end of its life and is in need of replacing. A new scanner with innovative technology will have immediate impact and assist our healthcare teams allowing patients to receive the vital care they need.
