Congratulations to the Luncheon of Hope committee who raised over $69,000 for the Northern Cancer Foundation.

The Northern Cancer Foundation (NCF) and the Luncheon of Hope Committee were very excited to welcome acclaimed entrepeneur, author, and breast cancer survivor Linda Ockwell-Jenner. Linda drew on her own experiences as a three-time cancer survivor and some well-placed humour to captivate the 600 attendees at the Luncheon of Hope. Linda’s appearance was once again generously sponsored by Vale.

“Even after 20 years, I still get blown away by the support our community shows for the Luncheon of Hope. This year, $69,500 was raised. We are so thankful for the outpouring of support from our special guests, community, sponsors  and attendees, ” says Tannys Laughren, Executive Director of the Northern Cancer Foundation.
