Nelson and Area Friends of the Family was created in 2000, and provides funding for travel expenses to families who must travel to seek medical diagnosis or treatment outside of Nelson and area. Our organization assists approximately 20 families per year with funding, advice and support.
The majority of families who receive support travel to locations such as Vancouver to access B.C. Childrens’ Hospital, as well as other places with specialists.
Friends of the Family rely on donations to provide support and have created an opportunity to individuals and members to become members of the organization. Nelson and Area Friends of the Family annual memberships are available for individuals, families and businesses.
Businesses receive a certificate which they can display, which in turn helps raise awareness of our organization. Help us help families by becoming or renewing your membership at the following link. .
