SURREY – Surrey developer J. S. Randhawa opened his pocket book wide by making a $100,000 donation towards getting a unique machine for diagnosing serious brain conditions in children as well as other serious medical condition.

The donation is part of the fundraising for ImageTech, headed by Dr. Ryan D’Arcy, which is part of Surrey Innovation Blvd.

Randhawa told the LINK the special machine that ImageTech is getting is not available in this region and since it is crucial for the diagnosis of many critical diseases especially devastating brain conditions in young children, including seizures.

“I just had to get behind this initiative because it’s being done in Surrey and this is where we live and our community is,” Randhawa said. “I’m urging my fellow business people to donate for this worthy project. I’m proud of the work Dr. D’Arcy and his team are doing.”

Randhawa, who started as a realtor in 1985 and then moved into land development in 1988, starting off with a one acre development, said the machine will be better than an MRI machine as there is only two such machines in the entire Canada.

Randhawa’s daughter Dr. Robin Randhawa is a chiropractor who recently opened her Life Force clinic in South Surrey, the Yaletown of Surrey, and he said he wanted to do something on behalf of his family and his children.

“We had Surrey Mayor Linda Hepner and Dr. D’Arcy and my entire family at my daughter’s clinic’s grand opening and we thought that it will be a nice gesture to make the donation at the same time,” Randhawa said.

Dr. D’Arcy told the LINK that the Machine has many other benefits in diagnosing other kinds of serious ailments like the heart, saying Randhawa’s donation will go a long way in their final drive towards construction. The total fundraising effort is hoping to raise between $12-13 million, with $11 million of that amount already raised for the project.

“This is a great project for Surrey and its resident and the entire region as now we will be able to do this right here instead of going to East or the State,” Dr. D’Arcy said.

We are so pleased with this generous donation from a stand up guy like JS Randhawa who really came through to support good causes, said Kerry Gibson who has been involved with Dr. A’Arcy in the fundraising effort for ImageTech. “

If we weren’t blessed with generous individuals such as himself then the community at large would suffer. He is certainly a pillar of society and we are blessed to have his support. This in particular coming from someone, myself, who I am sure will benefit first-hand from the use of the Imaging Center,” she said.
