We're proud to announce the 2nd edition of Beating Cancer -My Survival/and Prevention Guide by Terry Ames. Book will be launching on July 20th, 2020 at our Tee It Up For Terry Gold event!
Cancer Support Draw
Back on June 20th, 2015 we started the first bi-annual Cancer Support draw in support of the Terry Ames Care Fund at the Northern Cancer Foundations. We've raised over $200,000 to support local families over the last three draws.
Tee It up for the Terry Ames Care Fund (TACF) VI on July 20, 2020 with the goal to celebrate some success stories and their families, reminiscing about past events, raise funds for local families, launch the Second Edition of the Book and honour some of those who didn't make It.
About the Charity
It is difficult to understand the financial pressures that a family faces when someone is diagnosed with cancer. Time off work, travel, parking, treatments and diagnostics that aren’t covered by OHIP, can all place a huge burden on family finances. The Terry Ames Care Fund at the Northern Cancer Foundation was set up to help Sudbury families who need financial help so that they could focus on beating cancer.
Why We Started Terry Ames Care Fund
The Terry Ames Care Fund at the Northern Cancer Foundation was set up to help families who needed financial help so that they could focus on beating cancer. As important as this charity is to raise money for families fighting cancer, it’s success has more to do with helping to inspire patients and their families and creating hope where it often can be lost. An appropriate quote comes from one of the Fund's supporters; "His deepest wish was to inspire random acts of kindness. He hoped that if everyone extended a helping hand to someone in need of love or friendship, food, or shelter, a smile or a visit, ours might be a better world. Please, act generously.”
