This year, over 6,000 Vancouver Island residents will be diagnosed with cancer. The most common in men is prostate cancer.
We can help. However, it will take team work. It will take a coalition. Local grocers on Vancouver Island have united to form the Future Cures Coalition to raise $500,000 for PSMA-PET, an innovative diagnostic technology at BC Cancer – Victoria that will change prostate cancer outcomes in the community and beyond. This unique campaign will run September 8-November 8, 2021 and includes: Tru Value, Thrifty Foods, Country Grocer and Quality Foods. For a limited time Thrifty Foods will match all donations up to $125,000! Look for participating stores in your community.
