Nearly 1 in 2 Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer. That is a staggering and frightening statistic. In this inaugural year of Colour Your Hair to Conquer Cancer we are reminded why we take on bold, and in this case fun challenges, and fundraise to support cancer research at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.
The funds you raise or the donation you make will be supporting The Princess Margaret, one of the top 5 cancer research centres in the world. Many of our world-leading researchers are making the impossible possible, thanks to the tremendous philanthropic support that comes from our participants, donors, volunteers and supporters.
At The Princess Margaret, we never settle. We are always pushing the envelope. We don’t just invent technology. We build the facilities and the processes needed to impact every aspect of cancer care. This has allowed us to explore completely personalized approaches where we take images of the patient just before treatment, design the plan for them, and treat them in ways we could never have achieved before.
We are also continuously adopting new methods, including the power of machine learning and artificial intelligence, to deliver precision medicine. As we innovate in cancer care, we share it with cancer centres across Canada and around the world.
This May 2018 we are asking you go big and bold... colour your hair and raise funds in support of cancer research. Our vision is To Conquer Cancer In Our Lifetime – join us in this great new program that celebrates diversity. Be bold, choose your colour and raise funds for cancer research and challenge others to join you.
The Princess Margaret is transforming cancer care for Canadians thanks to advances in technology and new innovative therapies, fueled by the innovation of our cancer experts, and the generosity of our community.
