Starting today, you can screw cancer and give hope in your community by purchasing the Screw Cancer™ screwdriver in support of the Northern Cancer Fund. The Screw Cancer™ campaign is partnering with the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Foundation, as well as Prostate Cancer Canada, Juravinski Hospital and Cancer Centre Foundation (Hamilton, ON), the Northern Cancer Foundation (Sudbury, ON), and the Grand River Hospital Foundation (Kitchener-Waterloo, ON) to raise funds for early diagnosis, technology advancements and cancer support groups at the community level. The campaign is designed to give you, the donor, the power to choose which local cancer support organization your donation will support when you purchase a screwdriver to #screwcancer.
#GivingTuesday is an international day of giving, taking place directly after the sales of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It’s a day where people rally behind and support their favourite causes.
The Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Foundation used the excitement of the day to kick off their annual Christmas Wish List fundraising campaign, that includes 10 pieces of vital medical equipment for the Hospital. Totaling $107,546, the Wish List includes a Fetal Telemetry Monitor for Labour and Delivery, a set of Sinoscopy Instruments for the Operating Room, an Intracranial Pressure Monitor for the Intensive Care Unit and six Vital Signs Monitors for use in departments across the Hospital.
