Every October guests gather for a magical evening in support of Manitoba women living with a cancer diagnosis. Don’t miss the opportunity to attend the 26th annual Guardian Angel Benefit for Women’s Cancer and experience the grace and spirit of this tremendous event.

Since the inaugural event in 1992, more than $6.5 million has been raised in support of programs and initiatives at CancerCare Manitoba including the Guardian Angel Caring Room, the Breast and Gyne Centre of Hope and the mobile mammography program.

On October 17 you will be inspired by cancer survivors and professional models as they walk the celebratory pink runway in the signature Guardian Angel fashion show - one of the many highlights of this annual “must attend” event. You will also hear from CancerCare Manitoba's own Dr. Vallerie Gordon and feel emotion from the Royal Winnipeg Ballet Aspirant Program.

Dr. Vallerie Gordon, M.D. FRCPC
