Bring Advanced Cancer Detection to Atlantic Canadians

By Darlene Pomroy Join Me

My Why

You’re never ready for a cancer diagnosis, nor are your family and loved ones. Loretta, my kind and loving Mom passed away in 2018 from lung and brain cancer and I’m fundraising in her memory. She cared so much and loved helping others any way she could. Whether she realized it or not, she made a difference. 

 

Cancer brings sadness, but when you look a little harder there are stories of survival and resilience aplenty as well. I've had a few brushes with cancer myself in the form of stomach, breast and appendix cancer. When it's summed up in one sentence it doesn't seem like much does it? Rest assured there are buckets of pain, tears, stress and frustration hiding behind those words. But something stronger and more powerful is hidden there as well... GRATITUDE, for the love and support of those I love and those who love me. Gratitude for my aggressive screening schedule and the excellent care I received at the hands of the QEII care team. And so much gratitude for the way I was raised. As my sister Glenda would say, "Mama never raised a quitter!" 

I'm participating in this fundraiser in memory of Mom but also to honor those who've struggled or are currently struggling with cancer, and for their families. I know from experience that one small gesture can have a far-reaching and profound effect on someone we may not even know. And couldn't we all use a bit more of that in our world today?

A new cancer tracer is changing lives around the world and I'm asking for your support to help bring gallium-68 DOTATATE home to the QEII Health Sciences Center in Halifax. Your donation will help QEII teams discover the undetectable and connect patients to a life-saving scan.

 

Gallium-68 DOTATATE, whose scans have become the best-in-class method for diagnosing neuroendocrine cancers, is a radioactive tracer that is injected into a patient before they undergo a PET-CT scan. Even the smallest traces of cancer, that otherwise wouldn't be detected, light up on screen.

 

By reaching the $200,000 QEII fundraising goal by March 31, their teams and patients will have access to this world's best cancer detection in spring 2021.

 

Your support will help make it possible.
