CORNWALL – A Cornwall home builder has donated a large chunk of money to the Cornwall Community Hospital’s chemotherapy unit.

J.F. Markell Homes recently presented a cheque to the Cornwall Hospital Foundation for $5,000.

“Giving back to the community that has supported our business and meant so much to us, personally, is important to our family,” Alex Markell said. “We’re proud to make a donation that will help bring chemo to Cornwall.”
