Anita Couchie Memorial Charity Golf Tournament raises $28,000 for Cancer Care at NBRHC – Anishinabek News

NORTH BAY – Brian Couchie, along with friends and family, hosted the Anita Couchie Memorial Charity Golf Tournament on September 11 at Highview Golf Course. Generous sponsors, golfers, and donors helped raise more than $28,000 supporting cancer care for the community at North Bay Regional Health Centre (NBRHC) Foundation.

“On New Year’s Eve in 2013, my wife Anita, was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma. It is a cancer that forms in a type of white blood cell called a plasma cell. It was painful. While fighting this disease, Anita never complained. The nurses and support staff in the Chemotherapy Unit did an excellent job of making it as pleasant as possible. I wanted to do this tournament in my great appreciation to the nurses and staff working in cancer care at North Bay Regional Health Centre,” said Brian Couchie.

Each year, more than 1,200 people in the area are diagnosed with cancer. Early diagnosis and treatment are important. The journey for many patients is difficult and challenging. Our hospital has an important role in the care provided to patients with cancer. After Sudbury, we are home to the largest Chemotherapy Unit in northeast Ontario and provide more than 2,000 chemotherapy treatments each year.
