Ramona Dee has recently confirmed her involvement in the program: Laughter is the Best Medicine. Hosted at the Jean C Barber Lodge and sponsored by Bell Alliance, the program aims to provide entertainment for cancer patients. The Lodge provides accommodation for cancer patients from out of town and is supported by the Canadian Cancer Society. The residents tend to stay at the lodge for 4-6 weeks receiving treatment. It is important that these residents spend an hour laughing and enjoying themselves and leave with a fond memory of the lodge. Following our belief that the best medicine truly is laughter and focusing on the positive during such a hard time, the Laughter is the Best Medicine program was drafted and since it's inception many artists have volunteered their time, the most recent being Australian-born singer/songwriter Ramona Dee who has recently relocated to Vancouver for a working holiday. Ramona will be performing a private show at the lodge on Wednesday 23rd October 2013 for the residents in the entertainment hour which takes place ordinarily after lunch or dinner twice a month.
