‘Honouring Herstory’ Held by Two Young Women Raised A Fabulous $18,114.95 for MRI

May 23, 2023

What started out as an idea for a school project for Shyla Rocha and Carys D’Alimonte, students at Cardinal Carter Catholic School, became a $18,114.95 donation to MRI coming to ESHC! This donation exceeded the two young ladies’ goal and dreams for the event.

The girls’ held their Honouring Herstory event on March 5th in honour of International Women’s Day. The event was fabulous, with lunch, gelato and espresso bars, pop-up shops, prize raffles, a mini fashion show, live music and so much more!
Jennifer Dawson (second from the left), ESHC Board Member, and Dr. Patrick Cervini, Chief of Radiology at ESHC, spoke at the event, highlighting the significance of local access to an MRI for everyone in the community.
Shyla and Carys’ donation will help Erie Shores Health Foundation purchase Erie Shores Health Care’s very first MRI machine.
Operations of the machine post-purchase will be funded by the government.
Accessible health care impacts everyone, and no matter your age, YOU can help us make a difference! Thank you, Shyla, Carys and to everyone who supported Honouring Herstory.
