The 18th annual QEH/Eastlink Telethon runs for 18 hours this weekend with plenty of live entertainment and moving patient interviews.
The telethon airs on Eastlink TV Saturday from 12 noon to 9 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Last year's telethon raised almost $640,000.
Money raised this year will be going towards supporting the ongoing needs of medical equipment for the operating room, physical medicine, stroke care, the QEH provincial lab, along with many other important areas of the hospital.
Anyone wishing to pledge over the weekend can call toll-free 1-877-675-3343.
