There were ear to ear smiles and moments of laughter as a film crew from the British Columbia Pharmacy Association stopped by Seabird Island on May 5.

The crew was in the Office to interview Seabird Pharmacy staffers about their owners’ nomination for a British Columbia Pharmacy Association award.

This gave Band Member Kristy Johnson an opportunity to share her own story about how Seabird Pharmacy went above and beyond for her family.

“My granny, who is a Band Member living off-reserve, had fallen and broke her hip,” said Johnson, but the hardship didn’t end there.

“She was well enough to be discharged and transferred to a seniors’ home,” but she needed a walker and she needed it quickly.

The family contacted several pharmacies but they were all going to take months. That’s when Seabird Pharmacy came to the rescue.

“Moe and Tareq not only got the walker in a couple weeks, they delivered the walker to Coquitlam. I am eternally grateful for their help.”

Congratulations on your nomination Seabird Pharmacy and thanks for your dedication to our community!

Winners will be officially announced at the 2016 BC Excellence in Pharmacy Awards Gala in Kelowna, BC on May 27.
