Greetings golfers and supporters, As they say in Hollywood, ‘It’s a wrap!’ Of course, we’re talking about ‘Crush it with Bev’ – in support of Sunnybrook Lung Cancer. We crushed our fundraising goal and raised $150,000.
The monies came from donations (personal and corporate), sponsorships, the Lebovic golf day and on-line auction. If you’re wondering where the money goes, we want you to know the tangible, very real difference this money makes.
The short answer is: it goes towards biomarker testing and the work being done by Sunnybrook’s Dr. David Hwang. When a person (like me) is diagnosed at Sunnybrook, they typically take a tissue sample. This is tested for various markers, which in turn, help with a targeted treatment plan. If a person tests for biomarkers A, E and G, then the treatment plan targets them. Read more about this game changer.
That’s all for now. Sharing a picture of me handing off the big cheque to Dr. Hwang. It was a proud and emotional moment for me. Thank you for making this happen.
