An Espanola woman who has been accessing medical services in Espanola since birth wants to make getting blood tests a little easier.
Jolene Courtemanche says there’s more people like herself who have a hard time with their veins getting poked and prodded every day.
She wants to give back so she is starting a fundraiser to raise just over $8,000 for a vein finder.
Courtemanche has set up coin jars at local businesses in town and is looking at bagging groceries with the help of family, friends and supports.
She calls it giving back for everything the Espanola Regional Hospital has done to bring her through several medical crises in her lifetime.
