The Weekend to Conquer Cancer needs your help!
This year, especially, important causes and charities need help more than ever, with fundraising significantly affected by the pandemic.
This Saturday, Sept. 12 marks the Weekend to Conquer Cancer, and once again, as she has done for the last 14 years, new home industry marketing executive Linda O’Connor of Ryan Design International is participating in honour of her friend, Missy Daiter.
“Missy was an incredibly warm, caring and generous person,” O’Connor says. “She was an amazing mother and wife, the most devoted daughter and sister, and a loyal friend. She was brave until the very end. In 2017, Missy lost her incredible fight against cancer. Her spirit and strength throughout her sickness were remarkable and her courage was an example for her family and friends.”
The Weekend to Conquer Cancer benefits Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, with the sole objective to find a cure for cancer in our lifetime. Your donation supports personalized cancer medicine, research, treatment advances, education and new standards of care at The Princess Margaret – in Ontario and around the world. It will give scientists and research clinicians the opportunity to better understand the individual nature of each cancer and each patient.
Nearly one in two Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, which is why your support means so much.
