On November 14, The Scarborough Hospital Foundation will officially launch its second annual Scarborough World Gala. Its goal is to raise $2 million to support The Scarborough Hospital’s Cancer Care program.
The Gala will be held on May 10, 2014 and will honour Dr. Dhun Noria, Chief of Laboratory Medicine and Medical Director of Laboratories at The Scarborough Hospital, with a Lifetime Achievement Award.
The Scarborough Hospital’s Cancer Care program prides itself in providing holistic care, treating patients throughout the entire journey – from diagnosis, to surgery, through chemotherapy and radiation, and onto supportive care and recovery. The program has expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of most common cancers, including breast, colorectal, lung, prostate and lymphoma.
“Our vision is to implement a fully-integrated state-of-the-art Cancer Care program, which will improve and further enhance the excellent care already provided at the hospital,” said Michael Mazza, President of The Scarborough Hospital Foundation. “Funds raised from this exciting event will support the Cancer Care program and help us achieve this vision.”
The Gala launch will feature special guest speakers Dr. Marla Shapiro, CTV News Medical Consultant and Associate Professor at the University of Toronto’s Department of Family and Community Medicine, and Dr. Tak Mak, Director of the Campbell Family Cancer Research Institute at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.
