Trailblazer for Cancer Committee 2019.
Funds raised from Trailblazer For Cancer will support the Terry Fox PROFYLE project (short for PRecision Oncology For Young peopLE) through the IWK Foundation. Eighty per cent of children diagnosed with cancer will survive, but outcomes are poor for the 20 per cent whose cancers have spread, returned or are resistant to treatment. This project gives another chance to young cancer patients who are out of conventional treatment options.
Trailblazer For Cancer began in 2014 with a passionate group of volunteers looking to make a difference for children diagnosed with cancer at the IWK and beyond. The last two years have been difficult in the face of COVID-19 but the organizing committee is thrilled to bring back Trailblazer For Cancer for its 8th year and we hope you can join!
We look forward to seeing you on the trail!
