The Breast Cancer Society of Canada's mission is to save lives through breast cancer research. Since 1991, the Breast Cancer Society of Canada has funded over $14 million in Canadian breast cancer research.
The Society is a national organization with a family focused foundation, firmly established by Lawrence and Kay Greenaway, in memory of their daughter Pam who died of breast cancer at 38 years old. She left behind two small children and a loving husband. The Greenaway and Kohlmeier families positively transformed their deep loss into a mission to raise money to fund the research that could ultimately cure this devastating disease. The following quote taken from Pam's Story provides further insight into their motivation to keep the breast cancer fight going: “I think about Pam all the time, but it was almost as devastating to find out there were thousands of daughters besides my own with breast cancer.” ~ Lawrence Greenaway (Pam's father)
The Future is Bright!
The Breast Cancer Society of Canada shares with many individuals, organizations and research groups the long-term goal of curing all manifestations of breast cancer. We are driven by our vision to end breast cancer, and our mission to save lives through breast cancer research. This is achieved through funding and promoting the ongoing collaborative and transdisciplinary work of world-class Canadian translational breast cancer research groups.
Sponsorship, volunteer involvement and participation is critical to the success of keeping an event’s cost per dollar raised to a minimum. With the help from all of the above, funds raised for Mother's Day Walk go directly to lifesaving breast cancer research.
