Port Huron, MI — McLaren Port Huron Foundation is planning to purchase an endobronchial ultrasound bronchoscopy (EBUS) machine with the proceeds from this year’s Festival of Trees. The medical equipment will allow for early detection and treatment of lung cancer. The new technology gives hope to those afflicted with the disease, as it can improve survival rates.
For thirty-one years, the Festival of Trees has traditionally been a highly social event, but this year’s version will employ creative measures that respect social distancing guidelines. Trees will still be decorated and the magic of the holiday season will still be present.
This year, McLaren Port Huron Hospital’s South Tower Lobby will be transformed into a winter wonderland with decorated window displays. The community can drive by or walk around outside to enjoy the display.
General donations, as well as sponsorships, are being asked for to fund the purchase of the new lung cancer treatment equipment. The holiday display will be up from Thanksgiving to the New Year. Donation information: www.mclaren.org
