The Pink is an annual softball tournament fundraiser played in support of women’s cancers. Last year, proceeds went to the MUHC Breast Clinic. Pictured here, the Pink team presents a cheque Dr. Meterissian, Director of the Breast Clinic.
The MUHC Breast Clinic assists 20,000 patients annually with specialized treatment and care such as mammograms, ultrasounds, and MRIs.
Breast Cancer affects an estimated 25,000 Canadian Women & Men every year. 1 in 9 women will develop breast cancer during her lifetime. Thanks to centers such as our MUHC Breast Clinic survival rates are continuously on the rise. A secondary effect of breast cancer is Lymphedema, which occurs in 25% of breast cancer patients.
Donations to the Pink were directed towards the preventive care and early treatment of lymphedema.
The MUHC Breast Clinic receives NO government support. Your donations, help, and contribution to the Breast Clinic will aid in the continued efforts to beat this terrible disease.
