It’s December! As the holiday season is upon us and the 2018 ends, we are truly touched by all the many milestones we have reached together this year. Many of you had made some very brave lifestyle changes, you have decided to control how you age, and you have taken that important step and decided to ask one of our doctors about a health concern you’ve been avoiding. It has been a privilege to have been a part of your journey to better health. It’s amazing how all these little steps can add up to big changes.

One thing that is still the same at Papillon, is Dr. Stella’s commitment to our local community.

Once again, she has partnered with “The Magic of Christmas,” a local charity who has been spreading holiday cheer for over thirty years! Our offices have been filling up with your toy and clothing donations and it has really put us all in the Christmas spirit!

Every Christmas season transit buses are filled with donations of toys and clothing, like those received at Papillon. With a full sleigh, Santa and his elves do the rest! Deserving families in Okotoks, Black Diamond, Turner Valley and High River receive donations of clothing, toys and gift cards just in time for Christmas. Santa and his helpers also make a special stop at many senior’s homes and hospitals in the area. Hundreds of families in the Foothills will now have a much brighter Christmas thanks to the many generous donations we have received.

To say thank you, Dr. Stella is also giving everyone who donated a chance to win over $1,000 in treatments or products. We will be drawing three winners before December 20th and we can’t wait to surprise our three lucky winners with an early Christmas present!

Having our Papillon clinics in such strong communities like Calgary and Okotoks has given us all so many amazing opportunities to really be a part of something bigger than ourselves.

Getting to know so many of you and the true feeling of friendship and family in this area is especially evident this time of year.

We could not have tackled this important task without you! Thanks so much for being a part of our family and for remembering what this season truly means. We have loved being a part of “The Magic of Christmas.” We couldn’t think of a better way to show this amazing community just how much we all care.
