Between 50 to 60 children are diagnosed with cancer in Manitoba each year and over 80% are cured compared to less than 20% decades ago. This is incredible and gives us tremendous reason to hope. However, there is still so much more we need to do to help young people with rare and hard to treat cancers. By registering today, you can part of the solution! All funds raised at The Ride Inside will support PROFYLE at CancerCare Manitoba. Short for PRecision Oncology For Young peopLE, this initiative gives children, adolescents and young adults who are out of conventional treatment options another chance to beat their cancer.
PROFYLE is a pan-Canadian project which CancerCare Manitoba and the Foundation are part of. It focuses on providing personalized care for children, adolescents and young adults up to age 29. It offers patients who haven’t had a positive outcome with conventional cancer treatment other options.
CancerCare Manitoba Foundation has committed to raising $1 million over five years in support of CancerCare Manitoba’s participation in PROFYLE. The funds raised at this year’s RIDE INSIDE will be dedicated to this $1 M commitment.
ABOUT CANCERCARE MANITOBA FOUNDATION
All funds raised support an internationally recognized team of health professionals at CancerCare Manitoba who provide outstanding care for patients and their families.
Our mission, in partnership with our donors, is to support CancerCare’s strategic priorities. Your generosity enables the Foundation to maximize the funds provided to CancerCare Manitoba each year. Donor contributions help bridge the gap of initiatives and programs not eligible for government funding or where financial resources aren’t available, including prevention, early detection, clinical trials and leading-edge research and treatment. Thanks to the generosity of donors, CancerCare Manitoba Foundation has been able to grant $134 million since 2000. This support to CancerCare Manitoba profoundly impacts patient outcomes.
CancerCare Manitoba is our provincially mandated agency for cancer and blood disorders. We share its bold vision, “A world free of cancer” and the goal that no life is cut short by cancer — a complex set of more than 200 diseases. CancerCare Manitoba Foundation is the only charitable organization exclusively fundraising for CancerCare Manitoba.
