Fort St. John Hospital Foundation News: Sarah Byford a motivated young lady

Thank you, Sarah!

Pictured above is an amazing community member, 7-year-old Sarah Byford at her hot chocolate stand on December 15, 2018. Sarah’s hot chocolate stand raised $800, which she donated to the FSJ Hospital Foundation! This motivated little lady also had a stuffed animal drive and donated dozens of toys to the FSJ Hospital as well. Children in all departments of the hospital can cuddle with one of Sarah’s stuffies when they are sick or injured. Pictured above is Sarah presenting a cheque to Jess Cotton (Special Events and Admin at the FSJ Hospital Foundation) with the gifted stuffed animals below.
