Cancer survivor holding fundraiser to support Centenary Oncology Program, April 7
March 26, 2013 — When it comes to fighting cancer, having hope is a key element to overcoming the odds. So Letna Allen-Rowe is working hard to bring more hope to the staff, doctors and patients of Rouge Valley Centenary hospital’s (RVC) Oncology Unit through a special event next week, The Healing Hope Fundraising Brunch.
“This hospital is my home hospital and they literally saved my life,” says Ms. Letna, who is a survivor of breast cancer, diagnosed in 2011. “I’m passionate about cancer care there because they took good care of me when I was a patient. Now I want to give back, because they need the fundraising support to be able to provide the best care for more patients that rely on their home hospital, like I did.”
The Healing Hope Fundraising Brunch features a fantastic lineup of entertainment, with amazing gospel singers, fashion by talented Stacy-Ann Buchanan Productions, and even a couple of special guest speakers from RVC’s Oncology team, who will share their knowledge on cancer care. Ms. Letna, a performer and singer herself, is very excited to bring together talented singers like Rayon & Paulette White, Dave ‘Comfort’ Vassell, Rochelle Robinson, Sharon Dongen and Donett Thompson-Hall for the audience’s listening pleasure.
The brunch takes place at the St. Peter and Paul Banquet Hall in Scarborough, Sunday, April 7 from 1 to 5 p.m. Tickets are $50 and all proceeds support RVC’s Oncology Program.
