“The test saved my life.” – Murray Harrison. Click Murray’s photo to learn how a home screening test caught his cancer early.
World Cancer Day is Thursday, February 4. To highlight this very important day across our province, the Foundation has partnered with many locally-owned coffee shops for our first-ever A Cup for Tomorrow campaign. These enthusiastic partners have committed to help raise awareness and funds in support of cancer prevention and screening activities at CancerCare Manitoba. Activities which help Manitobans like Murray Harrison. A few years ago, Murray received a colorectal home screening kit in the mail from CancerCare Manitoba on his 50th birthday. A healthy and active person, he thought he didn’t need to complete the test. With his wife’s encouragement, Murray took the test. He was sure glad he did as it detected early stage colon cancer. The generous support of donors and committed partners is helping to save lives by funding cancer prevention and early detection initiatives.  



On World Cancer Day we are on a mission to raise awareness and help local businesses thrive. Will you join us? Take action by donating TODAY or support local by visiting the following coffee shops on Thursday, February 4 for a signature drink (latte, coffee or tea) and from some, a treat!
