THIS LITTLE PIGGY FUNDED A RIDE TO TREATMENT!
Sometimes, simply getting to cancer treatment can be a challenge. In Ontario, one in five cancer patients can’t get to their lifesaving appointments.
Help John and volunteers at the Canadian Cancer Society ensure our neighbours have safe, reliable transportation to all their cancer-related appointments with the Pigs of Hope campaign. Adopt a Piggy Bank for the holidays and fill your piglet’s belly with enough coins to fund a ride to treatment. Name it, dress it up and bring it to all your holiday parties. Contest for best dressed and best named pig. Keep in mind, their favourite snack is a toonie!
“As a volunteer driver for the Canadian Cancer Society, I have seen firsthand that the Wheels of Hope program truly eases the burden of the patient and their families. Whether their concern is making it to different cancer-related appointments, rearranging work schedules to get their loved ones to and from these appointments, or not having the means to get back and forth – I haven’t run into one patient that wasn’t grateful for Wheels of Hope and the drivers.” – John Campbell, Volunteer Driver for the Canadian Cancer Society for 6 years.
This holiday season, let’s ensure our family, friends & neighbours focus on getting well, not on how they will get to treatment.
To adopt a pig, contact the barn (aka the Canadian Cancer Society office) or stop by during regular business hours.
