THANK YOU to all of the Guardian Angel Benefit for Women’s Cancer partners, attendees, suppliers, and volunteers.

This year’s theme, “Feel the Love” exuded care and love from start to finish. Thank you for believing in the importance of having state-of-the-art research facilities here in Manitoba - within CancerCare Manitoba - and the role this plays as part of a global research effort to improve patient outcomes in our own province.

When the Guardian Angels launched their fundraising efforts 27 years ago, the five-year survival rate for women diagnosed with breast cancer was just 44% -- today it is now 88%! Incredible progress in early detection and treatment is a significant reason for greatly increased survival rate. Research will continue to be the only way these odds for women continue to improve.

We invite you to join us for a magical evening in support of Manitoba women living with a cancer diagnosis. Plan to attend the 27th annual Guardian Angel Benefit for Women’s Cancer and have the opportunity to make a tremendous difference.

We are thrilled to announce this year's speaker, Dr. Dan Shapiro, the Vice Dean for Faculty and Administrative Affairs at Penn State College of Medicine. Dr. Shapiro has a very personal cancer story which he will share with you - our valued Guardian Angel guests. He will tell his story with wit and indomitable spirit and demonstrate that “only when the rhythm of life is stirred violently are we able to discover its full beauty”.

Special guest band for the evening is Garrett Neiles and the Specialists, featuring Dr. Tom Hayakawa, Plastic Surgeon – Breast Reconstruction Program.

The evening includes chances to win auction prizes, purchase custom made Guardian Angel jewelry and mystery totes.The Guardian Angel signature fashion show will close the evening with cancer survivors and professional models gracing the pink runway. It is inspiring and one of the many highlights of this "must attend" annual event.

Thanks to the generosity of donors and sponsors, nearly $7 million has been raised since the inaugural Guardian Angel event in 1992. All of these funds remain in Manitoba and have enabled the establishment and operation of the Guardian Angel Caring Room, the offering of vital programs at CancerCare Manitoba through the Patient and Family Resource Centre, personalized patient support at the Breast and Gyne Centre of Hope and the mobile mammography program. Unwavering donor support continues to profoundly impact the cancer journey for Manitoba women and their families.

Cancer touches so many people we all care deeply about. One in two of us will be diagnosed with cancer in our lifetime, an alarming but very real statistic. CancerCare Manitoba is deeply committed to ensuring no life is cut short by cancer. Your support of the 2018 Guardian Angel Benefit will make an integral difference for women and their families living with this disease

Please join us or make a donation if you are unable to attend. Your investment will have a life-changing impact on the lives of mothers, daughters, sisters, friends and partners and all those in each of our lives who are now, or will be in the future, touched by cancer.
