The 2nd annual Celebrate Life with Lights Diwali Gala hosted by Cancer Warrior Canada Foundation is aimed at raising breast cancer awareness and proceed goes to breast cancer research. Asper Canadian Cancer Society stats 1 in 8 women gets breast cancer in their lifetime. To eradicate this stigma of breast cancer we need to support the researches to save our future generations. In 2017 with support of our generous sponsors and the community our Diwali gala raised over $18,000 with over 500+attendees. Cancer Warrior in association with Bright Run supports breast cancer research at the Juravinski Cancer Centre and the Escarpment Cancer Research Institute both these research centers are associated with Hamilton Heath Sciences Foundation. In recent years there have been many improvements in the treatment and care of patients with breast cancer. However, there is still much more that needs to be done. Advancements are made based on the knowledge gained through research year by year.
