Again we will be having a fundraiser with Purdy’s Chocolates just in time for Christmas! The proceeds will help fund Ataxia Research at KPU in Surrey under the direction of Dr. Paul Adams and Dr. Sian Spacey. The deadline for submission is Wed. Nov. 20 and orders can be picked up on Sat. Nov. 30 during our meeting at City Centre Library in Surrey. Orders will also be delivered to BCAS members that day and arrangements can be made with them for pickup or delivery.

Unfortunately Nutritionist, Tara Pawson had to cancel due to unexpected circumstances. Instead we will be having Ali Shamei from Wheelchair Works in Richmond speak to us. They sell new and used mobility equipment including wheelchairs, walkers, scooters and stairlifts. He will answer our questions and show us what is new on the market. Wheelchair Works also offers a monthly maintenance program to keep your equipment in top running condition. Check out their website – www.wheelchairworks.ca. Bring your questions!
The meeting will be from 1-4 PM at City Centre Library in Surrey. Please RSVP whether planning to attend or not.
