In the year, 2017, Sharon Hubbard’s SHARING TREES raised $500 which Sharon donated along with another $500 of her own funds towards the purchase of a vein-finding apparatus for the Nanaimo Regional Hospital.

Sharon underwent cancer treatments at the Nanaimo Hospital this past year, and the treatments were more difficult than necessary as the hospital is not equipped with this machine. At the time, Sharon determined that she would fund raise to purchase such a machine so that others going through the same treatment, would not have to endure what she did.
