Why Donate

Supportive Care Funds

The Northern Cancer Foundation has a renewed focus in supporting vital patient care delivered at the NECC. Donations made to the NCF on behalf of the funds listed below ensure that our loved ones receive the support they need to help combat their disease.

Trust Your Bust Fund

Since May 2014, breast cancer survivor Kimberley Wahamaa has been raising funds in support of breast cancer research at Health Sciences North Research Institute, breast cancer education and patient care in Sudbury, Ontario.

Terry Ames Care Fund

Cancer survivor Terry Ames started this fund to help patients and their families with financial aid so they can focus on beating cancer.

Cristina Care Fund

Cristina Roque had an unstoppable zest for life, even while battling non-Hodgkins’ lymphoma. Even though she’s not with us today, her legacy lives on with the Cristina Care Fund, helping patients who require stem cell treatments in Ottawa or Toronto with their travel costs.

Breanna Baxter Fund

Fund created in memory of Breanna Baxter; a beautiful ray of sunshine taken from us far too soon. Donations to this fund support the needs of the Pediatric Oncology Department at the Northeast Cancer Centre.

The Peter D’Aoust Fund

The Peter Daoust Fund was set up in memory of Peter by his daughter Christina, a nurse at the Northeast Cancer Centre. This fund is designed to provide financial support for cancer patients who are experiencing challenges due to their cancer diagnosis.

Make a Difference!

Our volunteers are our most precious commodities. They are a dedicated and active group of individuals who wish to make a difference in the lives of the people we serve.

Some of the ways in which our volunteers get involved are:

  • Serve on our Signature Event committees
  • Provide pro bono work for the Foundation
  • Sell raffle tickets at locations throughout the region
  • Assist with various other events as needed
  • Provide administrative assistance in the office (ex. stuffing envelopes, photocopying, phone campaigns, etc.)

If you are interested in volunteering for the Northern Cancer Foundation at our events, we’d love to have you join us!

Give us a call at (705) 523-4673 or fill out our Volunteer Application Form and email/fax it to the office. A member of our Staff would be glad to call you to discuss upcoming opportunities!
