The 25th annual Miss Chinese Vancouver Pageant Gala Dinner has raised an inspiring $460,000 benefitting the BC Cancer Foundation to bring surface-guided radiation equipment to BC Cancer – Vancouver.
Fueled by more than 700 generous guests at the Vancouver Convention Centre, funds raised will support BC Cancer patients who require precision radiation. Lions Clubs International was recognized for its commitment to a generous $100,000 USD match.
This state-of-the-art equipment will have a significantly positive effect for patients, decreasing treatment set-up time, reducing risk of missing the target and radiation of healthy tissue. It is particularly beneficial for pediatric and breast cancer patients.
With thanks to the leadership and support of the 2019 Gala Dinner Committee and its co-chairs Glynnis Chan, May Ho and Shella Keung, proceeds will enable BC Cancer clinicians to provide their patients with state-of-the-art radiation treatment.
