In Memory of Ken Beer
Diagnosed with mesothelioma, an incurable form of cancer caused from exposure to asbestos, Ken Beer spent his final days as a patient of the Palliative Care Unit at NHH. His wife Marli and son Stew were very grateful for the care Ken received during this very difficult time.
As an expression of thanks, the Beers donated $5,000 to purchase a CADD pain pump for future patients of the Unit. It is not uncommon for palliative patients to have multiple pumps on the go at any one time to administer a steady stream of pain medication to keep patients comfor table. Ken benefitted from access to these pumps during his hospital stay. In addition to the family’s personal donation, Marli and her friends and extended family joined forces to host a Christmas Gift Sale in November at Mackechnie House.
The event was a huge success and resulted in the purchase of a second CADD pump! We are very grateful to Marli, Stew, and all their family and friends who made this possible. Kenny Beer - Loved with a love beyond telling. Missed with a grief beyond tears.
