25th Annual Light Up a Life Campaign at Northumberland Hills Hospital - Global News Peterborough

It is a sign that the Christmas season is ahead of us. The 25th Light Up a Life campaign took place Tuesday at the Northumberland Hills Hospital (NHH) in Cobourg, Ontario.

This year, the NHH Foundation plans to raise $ 150,000 to acquire new operations such as gastroscopes, colonoscopes, and flexible fiber optics, just to name a few.

"Much of my practice is performing endoscopic procedures, such as colonoscopy and gastroscopy," Dr. Alison Tilley, a hospital surgeon and campaign chair this year. "It's a big part of general surgery here at Northumberland Hills Hospital."
