Sweet Support for Renal Patients

Roberta Lane has raised funds, one muffin, loaf and pie at a time, over the past 15 years for the Regional Renal Program. She started her bake sale in support of renal care 15 years ago at McKellar hospital.

Over the years it has evolved into a bake sale and penny auction at the Health Sciences Centre. Roberta thanks all who have donated over the years and the hospital staff, volunteers and community that have supported this event. Together, she says, they have helped her raise a total of over $60,000 to support renal patient care.

The Regional Renal Program provides a wide range of services to people living in Northwestern Ontario with kidney disease, including education, decision making support and treatment provided in the Multi-Care Kidney Clinic, in the dialysis units, as well as pre- and post-transplant, and living kidney donation care.
