The BC Cancer Foundation’s 13th annual Jingle Mingle, presented by Thrifty Foods, was held on Thursday, November 28th, raising an extraordinary $650,000 to bring an innovative therapies unit to BC Cancer – Victoria. These crucial funds, along with the generosity of Foundation donors throughout the year means a new clinical trials unit will launch in Victoria.
Fueled by 325 generous Jingle Mingle guests, funds will support the launch of the unit, with a primary goal to create more clinical trials and provide greater access for more patients on the Island, and beyond.
Currently, there are six trials available in Victoria. With the inspiring philanthropic support from Jingle Mingle donors, BC Cancer can now quadruple this amount to 24 trials in the next two years, giving oncologists more options to better treat their patients.
The BC Cancer Foundation’s Jingle Mingle has raised more than $8 million in its 13-year history, supporting BC Cancer’s brilliant clinicians and scientists to provide the Island community with world-class research and care today.
Jingle Mingle is led by a dynamic and dedicated team of people in our community:
