Dreams Realized at Jeff Walters Jewellers
When Jeff Walters’ mother died of cancer in 2011, he wanted to reach out in memory of her. He did this in two ways - first by implementing a dream she had shared with him about a giftware boutique and secondly, by using the boutique to raise funds in support of other families struggling with cancer. Marcia’s boutique became a reality in November 2011, with over 200 customers, hospital representatives and public officials present to commemorate this event.
The boutique features exceptional gift items to help families celebrate special occasions, and by doing so, help others. RVH reached its dream around the same time with the opening of the Simcoe Muskoka Regional Cancer Center. After more than a decade of planning, fundraising and construction, RVH is now able to bring comprehensive cancer care to our region. Now, distances from such advanced facilities, will no longer be factors for people receiving their life saving treatment.
Treatment Consulting Room at RVH in Honor of Marcia Walters
So, in honor of his mother Marcia Walters, Jeff has dedicated a Treatment Consulting room in memory of her name. In September of 2012, he was given a private tour by Eric Dean, CEO of the Foundation, of the new state-of-the-art building that houses the new Expansion project at the RVH, and at the same time, the privilege to adhere the plaque that now resides outside the dedicated treatment room. My mom would be so delighted to know that her memory is and will continue to support other families in need”, says Jeff. “Her natural inclination to serving others in the community remains alive and well”. Jeff welcomes all to come to Marcia’s Boutique and share in this dream. Not only has the boutique served the region by offering unique and creative gift ideas but also as an outlet for those wishing to share their stories about loved ones who have suffered from cancer.
Royal Victorial Regional Health Centre & Jeff Walters Jewellers
Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre is an acute care community hospital based in Barrie, Ontario, that boasts a state-of-the-art facility that has experienced tremendous growth over the past decade. In June of 2012, the hospital celebrated it's largest capital fund raising project in Simcoe Muskoka history by raising $450 million dollars towards a new Cancer center called the Simcoe Muskoka Regional Cancer Centre. Now Cancer patients from central and northern Ontario need not be forced to make the long journeys to Toronto to seek treatment.
In memory of Jeff's mother, who lost her battle with cancer in April of 2011, Jeff Walters Jewellers is showcasing a unique giftware and high fashion jewellery department called Marcia’s Boutique. Part of the proceeds from Marcia’s boutique, is donated to Royal Victoria Cancer Centre to pay for a patient assessment room within this new facility. The room bears a plaque In Memory of Marcia Walters.
