“Our continued support of Telethon, reaching it’s over 90 beneficiaries, is incredibly important because it underscores our commitment to the health of our community and helping children and families who need additional care,” Jason added.

 “The funds we have been able to raise for Telethon 2023 through the purchase of the iconic Fat Cat dolls are thanks to the generosity of the community and our wonderful pharmacy teams.”
