The following group of leaders and advocates have volunteered their time to help raise the $20 million needed to advance cancer care in Durham Region and beyond. Their dedication represents the spirit of our community and a true representation of what we can accomplish when we work together.

“Thirteen years ago I sat in this same position, Co-Chair of the Heroes of Hope Campaign Cabinet and we did something remarkable. We brought cancer care close to home. I am empowered by this community and its history of giving.  Cancer is something that has affected all of us. This is our cause and I hope you will join me by investing in local cancer care through our campaign.”

— Paul Mackie, Our Cancer Campaign Co-Chair
