The statistics are staggering!
It is estimated that in 2017:
• 25,700 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. This represents 26% of all new cancer cases in women in 2017.
• On average, 70 Canadian women will be diagnosed with breast cancer every day.
We are looking for your support for our annual event “ TOUCH DOWNS, TAPAS & TATAS” on Sunday Nov. 19th 2017 from 1-4pm at BARRA FION & GATOR TED’S in Burlington. These 2 restaurants have kindly donated their spaces to host this event for men and women.
“The Camisole Project” BECAUSE WE CARE packages are provided free of charge to every woman who is having breast cancer surgery at hospitals in Burlington, Hamilton, Oakville, Niagara and Milton.
These packages contain many important items including a post surgical camisole and comfort pillow to help a woman through the first few weeks after surgery.
Barb Daize (owner of BodyMed Boutique) was the founder of this project in 2012.
We are only able to help these women through the generous support of local sponsors.
We are asking for your consideration in giving either a one- time sponsorship donation or a gift in kind to support our raffle prizes and games.
Every single dollar donated from our event will go to purchase camisoles and other items for our
BECAUSE. WE.CARE. Packages for women going through breast cancer surgery.
We thank you in advance for considering our request.
