In 2023, Port Perry Pedals is raising funds to support the purchase of state-of-the-art cancer diagnostic equipment, helping patients who rely on the R.S. McLaughlin Durham Regional Cancer Centre for expert care close to home.

An exciting announcement will be made later this spring. Stay tuned!

1 in 2 Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Cancer affects everyone. And that should have an effect on you.
Cancer may be the #1 cause of death in Canada, but the good news is that it can be beaten.

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.

We are diagnosing cancer earlier and helping many people live longer thanks to incredible advances in prevention, screening and treatment. Discoveries in cancer genetics and advanced imaging mean doctors can stop some cancers before they even start. And new minimally-invasive models of care are allowing for personalized cancer treatments with fewer side effects and less risk of complications.
Every year, approximately 7,000 new cancer patients rely on Lakeridge Health.

Lakeridge Health Foundation’s Our Cancer Campaign has reached a significant milestone, surpassing 80% 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 focused priorities will include state-of-art diagnostic imaging equipment with exciting news coming later in 2023.

Through Our Cancer Campaign, our Hospital will remain at the forefront of cancer care in Durham Region and beyond. Together, with your support, we can change the course of this disease, change lives and help countless families in our communities.
