Often times women don’t put their health first so Oakville Hospital Foundation is doing something about it. The Foundation has launched $1.6 million women’s health initiative focused on raising funds for OTMH to meet women’s specialized health needs throughout their lives.
And, thanks to Ian and June Cockwell, together with Amarna, they will generously match all donations up to $150,000.
Today, more people - particularly women - are living longer but with one or more chronic conditions like diabetes, heart disease and osteoporosis or diseases that were once considered fatal such as cancer. Women also suffer from mental health issues such as depression and anxiety disorders more than men. By improving access and expanding programs, OTMH can care for more women closer to home.
Funds raised from now until International Women's Day - March 8- will focus on women’s health from head to toe. Equipment is needed for:
- Breast Health
- Heart and Vascular
- Gastrointestinal, Gynecology and Urology
We hope you will consider getting behind this cause because keeping women healthy is the single biggest contributor to supporting family health and the health of our communities.
