President & CEO, BC Cancer Foundation

Last night, our seventh Inspiration Gala proved to be an amazing evening. Thanks to the 400 guests who attended the Moroccan- and Indian-inspired event, we raised over $1.5 million to support the Personalized Medicine Project at the BC Cancer Agency – it was truly inspiring.

I would like to extend a big thank you and congratulations to our Inspiration Gala committee and chair, Monika Deol, for putting together such a successful and beautiful event.

Our MC for the evening was nothing short of amazing as he – Peter Mansbridge of CBC – captivated the room with his stories and drew attention to the important work happening at the BC Cancer Agency. We thank you, Peter, for joining us last night. 

You can read our full announcement about the Inspiration Gala here. You can also learn more about the Personalized Medicine Project here – the money raised last night will go directly to supporting this exciting initiative at the BC Cancer Agency.

Thank you,

Douglas
