We're fundraising for Ride for Cancer
Did you know that 1 in 2 Atlantic Canadians will face a cancer diagnosis in their lifetime? That is why we're joining the fight to help build the best cancer care program in our region. On Saturday, October 3, we're riding alongside a community with one common goal: to transform cancer care, here at home.
With your support, we are one step closer to introducing a new, world-class procedure at the QEII Health Sciences Centre. Access to a breast seed brachytherapy program will help ensure that some early stage breast cancer patients – from every community across our province – can spend less time at the QEII undergoing radiotherapy. This program will reduce the number of treatments required from 30 to 1. For patients, this means more time at home, focusing on what matters most.
These tiny seeds have a big impact and with your support, we will be able to target breast cancer better than ever before and help ensure our cancer centre has the best treatment options available here at home.
We’ve all been touched by cancer and when you support my ride, you are funding the fight against cancer for Atlantic Canadians today and for future generations.
