BC Cancer - 2017 Donor Impact Report - 10

Enhancing Care
BRINGING CRITICAL CANCER
DIAGNOSTIC TOOLS TO
VICTORIA AND KELOWNA
Patients on Vancouver Island and in the Southern
Interior are in need of PET/CT scanners closer to
home. PET/CT delivers precise imaging technology,
giving doctors essential information for diagnosis
and treatment. Currently, BC Cancer's only PET/CT
scanners are located in Vancouver.
At the 10th annual Jingle Mingle fundraising event
in Victoria, a record-breaking $1.74 million was
raised to bring state-of-the-art PET/CT imaging to
BC Cancer's Vancouver Island Centre.
Special thanks to the generosity of donors and
a $1 million gift from long-time supporters at
Thrifty Foods.
A fundraising campaign is also underway
to bring a PET/CT machine to patients
at BC Cancer's Sindi Ahluwalia Hawkins
Centre for the Southern Interior.

DONOR IMPACT REPORT 2017

Donors supported the British Columbia Oral
Cancer Prevention Program in partnership with
Taste for Life. Led by Dr. Miriam Rosin, the
program aims to reduce the incidence of oral
cancer. With generous support, Dr. Rosin and
her colleagues have established two successful
community clinics screening hundreds of people
for early signs of oral cancer in Vancouver and
Surrey, with plans to establish a third clinic soon.

Centre is expanding with a new

It will be fantastic to
have increased access to
such advanced imaging to
better diagnose, stage and plan
treatments for my patients.
