How Your Gift Helps

Every dollar raised at Jingle Mingle directly improves cancer care for patients in our community. Since its inception 11 years ago, Jingle Mingle has raised more than $7-million to support patient programs and research on Vancouver Island. The combined generosity of our guests, donors, committee members and sponsors has allowed the innovative clinical and scientific minds at BC Cancer to reach new heights of achievement.  

The 2017 Jingle Mingle completed a $5-million campaign to bring state-of-the-art PET/CT imaging to BC Cancer—Vancouver Island. This will be the first scanner on the island and the third in the province. Beginning in the fall of 2018, patients will no longer to travel off-island to Vancouver for these essential diagnostic scans.
