Our Ride community will rise to an epic challenge in 2020 with a goal to raise $1-million net. Funds raised will transform cancer care for Atlantic Canadians and help ensure our cancer centre has the best treatment options available here at home.
In 2020, our Ride community will bring the QEII Health Sciences Centre one step closer to introducing a new, world-class procedure – a breast seed brachytherapy program.
Access to a breast seed brachytherapy program will help ensure that some early stage breast cancer patients – from every community across our province – can spend less time at the QEII undergoing radiotherapy. This program will reduce the number of treatments required from 30 to 1. For patients, this means more time at home, focusing on what matters most.
