On August 24 CancerCare Manitoba Foundation hosted the first-ever Manitoba vs. Cancer radiothon with partner 103.1 Virgin Radio.
From 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Virgin Radio hosts, including Ace Burpee and Chrissy Troy, were LIVE at CancerCare Manitoba sharing inspirational stories of patients whose lives have been positively impacted by the treatment they’ve received at CancerCare Manitoba. They also discussed the incredible work, including ground-breaking research, which happens right here in Manitoba.
An emotional and hopeful day finished with a visit from Fred Clark – an inspirational cancer survivor who will climb to Mount Everest base camp with his daughter, and a surprise visit from Rob, a listener who called in earlier to speak with Ace and Chrissy. Rob expressed his gratitude for the treatment and care his 15-month-old son received who is now six years-old.
From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU MANITOBA!
Your generosity will help create More Tomorrows Together for Manitobans living and affected by cancer.
