In spring 2017 the Buckstein family initiated a fundraising campaign. Samuel Buckstein, a young man from Ontario, had travelled to Revelstoke with his family on a winter holiday and became unwell. He was attended to by medical staff at Queen Victoria Hospital. He was subsequently diagnosed with testicular cancer. Upon returning to his home in Ontario, Samuel had surgery and then started a course of chemotherapy. As gesture of appreciation the Buckstein family initiated a fundraising campaign to benefit some of the hospitals and treatment centres who helped Samuel along his road to recovery. Queen Victoria Hospital was chosen as one of the recipients. Over $12,000 was donated to the hospital. These monies were used to purchase an extra set of laparoscopic equipment for use at the hospital ‘s operating room. The Foundation is very appreciative of the Buckstein family, their family and friends for the generous donations. Most importantly we wish Samuel success in his treatment and future health.
