Why? I am writing to ask for your support in our sponsorship drive for the 2018-2019 fiscal year. Wait! We understand everyone has their hand out but give us a chance to explain. Our ongoing goal is to be referred to as “The 911 of breast cancer” by providing ongoing and enhanced programming and support to those in the Ottawa area who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. We receive no government funding and we do our best via fundraising, but we need HELP. It’s that simple. And we need YOUR help.
What? BCA is a local community-based organization dedicated to enhancing the life of those living with a breast cancer diagnosis through practical help, emotional support and education. We are a small non-profit organization and a registered charity in the Ottawa region. Since 1992 we have grown to offer many programs, resources and support for all those in our community who have been diagnosed with breast cancer.
Who? In Ottawa alone, 2.7 women are diagnosed daily with breast cancer every day. Statistics show that 230 men in Canada will also be diagnosed with breast cancer. It’s a staggering number. And while the Ottawa Hospital is a gold standard treatment facility for the disease, there’s more to challenging breast cancer than medicine and hospitals. Biopsies, mammograms, MRIs, surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, hormone treatments and more are among the many roads a breast cancer patient must travel. Often with no road map. As our provincial governments cut back on health care funding, all patients, not just breast cancer patients, are often left without the resources required that go along with dealing with an illness and that are required for long term healing. We are always looking to develop our programs to include changing needs, for example, those people living with metastatic breast cancer who are living longer but have access to less and less support services due to cutbacks. We are always thriving to enhance existing programs.
How? Take a look at our prospectus and pick one of the levels that works for you. And heh, if none of these traditional offerings work for you, let’s create one that does, JUST FOR YOU! If you’re “good to go” please fill out our letter of interest and email, fax or mail it into our office.
We believe most of us want to make a difference in our community and support those organizations and people who are in need of help and support. Through your sponsorship you can:
- EMPOWER our members to benefit from enhanced BCA program support.
- INSPIRE those in your community and our sector to reach for higher ground.
- IMPACT our organization in a positive way that will help us grow as an organization and provide even better support to our members and the Ottawa based cancer sector.
Join us in our “free for all” against breast cancer and help us support your local community. Meet us anywhere, we’ll be there for you!
