CEO of Trokia Management Renee Merrifield has friends and family who have had cancer.

She is part of group of dedicated community members, hoping to establish the first-ever Chair in Brachytherapy in Kelowna.

The BC Cancer foundation has kicked off a 3.5 million dollar fundraising campaign for the intiative.

"You will, or someone you know will be affected by cancer in your lifetime," Merrifield says. " And we all need to be part of the solution, and this is a really unique and awesome opportunity to be a part of some of the innovation."

Brachytherapy is a form of treatment that delivers radioactive seeds directly into a tumor.
