In 2023, Port Perry Pedals is raising funds to support the purchase of state-of-the-art cancer diagnostic equipment. Critical to the cancer journey for many, a PET CT scan helps determine the size, location and stage of a person’s cancer. Currently 30 patients a week are being sent outside Durham Region for PET CTs because the closest scanners of this kind are in Toronto and beyond.
Lakeridge Health Foundation’s Our Cancer Campaign has reached a significant milestone, surpassing 90% of its $20 million goal, and have an ambitious plan to meet their fundraising target by the end of 2023.
Thanks to generous donors they’ve funded advancements like surgical robotics, specialized lab technology, and personalized treatment options and research.
In the coming year the Foundation will focus on funding a number of final priorities including the newly announced PET CT that will drastically improve cancer diagnostic services in Durham Region.
Through our collective fundraising with Port Perry Pedals we can help change the course of this disease and help countless families in our community. Please support your family and friends generously!
The need for comprehensive cancer services is increasing exponentially and our community, once again, has been charged with investing in cancer care, close to home.
Lakeridge Health Foundation has embarked on an ambitious $20 million campaign to raise funds for research, education, capital projects and equipment that support cancer care in Durham Region at Lakeridge Health and the R.S. McLaughlin Durham Regional Cancer Centre in Oshawa.
