An Espanola woman has received funding for a vein finder from a local business helping her nearly reach her goal.

Domtar Espanola presented Jolene Courtemanche with a cheque for $1,500 towards her goal of $8,100 for a vein finder.

Courtemanche, who has received medical care throughout her life says the vein finder will help people like her who have to constantly have blood work done.

She says with the funds from Domtar, she is very close to the total amount of money needed, which she hopes to reach by early December.
The presentation was made at the Espanola Regional Hospital Foundation this week.
