Investing in Game Changing Cancer Care

Hi Everyone. 

What if we could reduce radiation treatments from 25 to five for certain cancers? Condense seven weeks of daily radiotherapy treatment sessions to one week or less? 

We recently moved to Halifax and on Saturday, October 1, 2022, Gillian and I are riding alongside a community with one common goal: to transform cancer care, by helping fund a world’s first cancer-fighting technology at the QEII Health Sciences Centre.

It's no stretch to say that all of us are affected by cancer.  On this 100km ride I'll be thinking of, and honouring, family and close friends who have had the path of their lives profoundly impacted by cancer.  

With your support, we’ll help introduce a first-in-the-world cancer treatment option, called personalized radiotherapy. Pioneered and invented right here in Nova Scotia at the QEII, this technology has the potential to transform the radiation treatment journeys for those facing a cancer diagnosis.

World-leading innovation and inventions are exciting. Fewer radiation treatments, better cancer outcomes, reduced side effects, more time at home with family, and reduced financial burden on patients and the healthcare system are all benefits we will help make possible.

This world-leading project will be entirely donor-funded through BMO Ride for Cancer and the QEII Foundation. Now more than ever, we need your support to help make personalized radiotherapy a reality. 

Thanks for considering making a donation to improve cancer care - every dollar counts!!
