1 in 9 Canadian women will get breast cancer in their lifetime.
On Sunday October 1st, Davidson & Company will be participating in the 2017 Run for the Cure. Breast cancer is a nasty disease that has touched all of us at some point, and this includes our dear friend, colleague, and survivor Annelie Vistica. Annelie went through this battle almost three years ago, and we were all fortunate that her cancer was found early and she received excellent care. Please support our team captain and join or donate today, and show Annelie and her family that we're more than a firm, we're also a family!
The money raised during the CIBC Run for the Cure helps to fund critical and groundbreaking research, education, and advocacy initiatives across the country. Breast cancer changes people and their families, and we need to find a cure!
Fundraising works. Investments in innovative research and education by the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation have led to progress in breast cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care. As a result, mortality rates have decreased by 43% since the peak in 1986.
We are all in this together. Despite our successes, 67 women are still being diagnosed with breast cancer in Canada every day. Mothers, daughters, fathers, brothers, caregivers and friends; we will all be touched by breast cancer in our lifetime.
Together, we can help to create a future without breast cancer.
