Meet Bev Moir

Bev Moir is raising funds for Lung Cancer Testing at SunnybrookI was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer almost five years ago and told to get my affairs in order. As a never-smoker with a healthy lifestyle, the news was shocking. I subsequently learned that never-smokers account for about 20% of lung cancer diagnoses.

The excellent care and treatment I received at Sunnybrook facilitated my transition towards lung cancer advocacy—specifically for advanced diagnostic testing. I benefited from this testing, which allows some patients to receive targeted therapy, a more precise approach with fewer side effects.

I’m fortunate to have had two incredible careers – nursing/health care administration and wealth management. I’ve now found a third chapter – a lung cancer crusader. Follow my progress here:

In 2021, our tournament raised over $150,000, and we purchased the Ion Chef Instrument for Sunnybrook. In 2022, your donations helped support clinical trials and train the next generation of specialists to advance lung cancer research. In 2023, we reached nearly $500,000 in cumulative fundraising and supported research testing a better diagnostic tool, liquid biopsy, a less invasive procedure that results in earlier diagnosis and treatment.

I didn’t do this alone – thanks to the ongoing support of family, friends, former colleagues, my buddies (tennis, walking and golf), and my caring community. I know this year’s event will be even better with your help. Please join us and help make a difference. Thank you.
