Work for a Cure is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness and providing support for those affected by cancer. We are a grass roots group that is 100% volunteer based and directs all of its funds back to our local community.
We are proud of our commitment to support pediatric cancer research and local families with children diagnosed with cancer. In Canada, over 10,000 children are living with some aspect of cancer or its long term effects. Another 1,700 children are diagnosed with cancer each year - that’s 4 or 5 per day. The treatment and cure for these children is a round-the clock process, lasting 3 or more years. It’s an exhausting journey that can displace many childhood joys. Our vision is to “give where we live” and ensure that no child in our community has to battle alone.
