2019 Hope Couture HOPE COUTURE RAISES MORE THAN $700,000 TO BRING FUTURE OF PANCREATIC CANCER RESEARCH AND CARE TO B.C. The BC Cancer Foundation’s sixth annual Hope Couture presented by Legacy Senior Living - The Leo Wertman Residence announces more than $700,000 raised to launch a cutting-edge pancreatic rapid access clinic at BC Cancer – Vancouver. “Pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer-related death in Canada, and unless more effective treatment strategies are found, it’s projected to become the second leading cause by 2030,” says Dr. Daniel Renouf, medical oncologist, BC Cancer and co-founder of Pancreas Centre BC. “Our team is immensely grateful to Hope Couture guests and Foundation donors for helping us kick-start this crucial clinic.” Philanthropic funds raised at Hope Couture will help to change outcomes and bring hope to the more than 800 people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in our province each year. The pancreatic rapid access clinic at BC Cancer – Vancouver will be the first of its kind in Western Canada, providing expedited access to consults with multiple specialists, rapid diagnostic testing, cutting-edge genetic profiling and innovative research within one clinic. Held at the Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel, guests of the fashion show and luncheon were taken to “Sunset on the Serengeti” with lively décor and an energetic live auction. Vancouver boutique retailers Bacci's and Boboli impressed the audience with stunning fashions from their fall and winter collections, including pieces from Chloé, Valentino, Dries Van Noten, Stella McCartney, Giambattista Valli and more.
