RCMP selling calendar to support bone marrow society

The Comox Valley RCMP detachment is once again honoured to support the Bruce Denniston Bone Marrow Society.

CONST. BRUCE DENNISTON

The Comox Valley RCMP detachment is once again honoured to support the Bruce Denniston Bone Marrow Society.

This year the society is celebrating 25 years of saving lives and has produced a beautiful 13-month calendar.

Proceeds from the sale of this calendar will be used to further the work inspired by Const. Bruce Denniston. When Bruce he was diagnosed with leukemia, he was told a bone marrow transplant was his best chance for survival.

However, the Canadian Unrelated Bone Marrow registry was only in its infancy and by the time a suitable donor was found for Bruce in England, he could not recover from the treatment required to prepare him for the transplant.

Along with Denniston’s determination, the help of friends and the overwhelming community support, there are now over 300,000 Canadians registered for this possible life-saving initiative.

For more information, please visit www.onematch.ca.

This year’s calendar features the work of Arnold Friberg, possibly one of the greatest master painters of the 20th century. Stop by the RCMP detachment at 800 Ryan Rd. in Courtenay or call 250-338-1321 should you wish to purchase one or more of these special calendars.

Calendars cost $15 and all monies raised will support this worthwhile cause.
