FUNDRAISING
IN HONOUR

Vera Sutton's
annual
fundraisers have
helped raise over

$25,000

For Vera Sutton,
fundraising is not only
for the BC Cancer
a way to honour her
Foundation
late son, Devon, but also
an important means in bringing
together those who loved him.

Fundraising makes us feel like
we are doing something to beat
cancer back, for Devon's memory
and for so many others.
- Vera Sutton, donor

DON'S LEGACY:
INSPIRING OTHERS TO GIVE
Don Eyford will always be remembered for his
dedication to his community.
When he was diagnosed with cancer at age 65,
the prominent Vancouver resident decided to
give a significant amount of money to support
research through BC Cancer's legacy giving
program. His gift will continue to improve patient
outcomes for years to come.
"It was a goal of Don's to give back," his wife, Susan,
says. "I was always inspired by his giving spirit."
