Stories of our community involvement
On National Philanthropy Day, we thank our supporters, like YOU, for sharing in our vision of a world where no one fears cancer! Your help is fueling innovative research, and vital support services for patients and their families. From all of us at the Canadian Cancer Society, thank you!
On October 14th the "Life After Laundry" Ladies CLUB hosted their 'Live Your Dash' event with special key note speaker Leah Goldstein. Organizer Melanie Marie Fulks-Kraus wanted to make the event have purpose while honouring her beloved Jen who they had lost to cancer recently, she generously gave the proceeds of the event to Canadian Cancer Society Okanagan/South Okanagan Southern Interior Lodge Program. We are so grateful that community based groups like the "Life After Laundry" Ladies CLUB and their members sharing our passion for our mission to eradicate cancer & help those affected and battling now.
Thank you to all the attendees who made their donation possible, the vendors and everyone involved.
Cancer Changes Everything & on that day SO DID YOU.

Congratulations Awantika! This Canadian Cancer Society volunteer and UBCO student won the Volunteer Spirit Scholarship Award for those who showcased volunteerism in their community.
Awantika Mittal, 22, recently completed her second year in the Bachelor of Science program and has a trove of volunteer experience. She used to teach technology to seniors and acts as a peer mentor at the university.
“It makes you busy and teaches you a lot of things,” she said, adding she will be using the scholarship towards her tuition.
Her family immigrated to Kelowna two years ago from India.
“We are very proud of our daughter, and we thank the Canadian community,” said her mother Neeru Mittal.
We've had quite a few hair donations this week! This lovely young man just came into the office with his hair donation - he's been growing it for 3 1/2 years! Doesn't he look handsome! Thanks Christopher!

Thanks to thousands of generous donations from Canadians from coast to coast, over 70,000 ponytails have been donated and made into real hair wigs to help women living with cancer through the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program. The wigs are offered free of charge to those who have lost their hair on their cancer journey. This year, Pantene has generously donated 920 wigs to the Society's wig banks across Canada.
