The Scarborough Hospital Foundation (TSHF) is honoured to welcome the Duchess of York Lady Sarah Ferguson as the keynote speaker for the second Scarborough World Gala on May 10, 2014. The goal is to raise $2 million to support The Scarborough Hospital’s (TSH) Cancer Care program.
The Gala will include a Lifetime Achievement Award presentation to Dr. Dhun Noria, The Scarborough Hospital’s Chief of Laboratory Medicine and Medical Director of Laboratories, for her unwavering commitment and steadfast dedication to both the hospital and the surrounding community.
TSH’s Cancer Care program prides itself in providing holistic care, treating patients throughout their entire journey – from diagnosis, to surgery, through treatment and onto supportive care and recovery. The interprofessional team is comprised of highly skilled health care professionals with specialized training and 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 enhance the excellent care already provided at the hospital,” says Michael Mazza, TSHF President and CEO.
In addition to welcoming the Duchess of York Lady Sarah Ferguson as the keynote speaker, the Gala will be hosted by Anwar Knight of CTV News, and will include live performances from renowned musician Lawrence Gowan, whose wife Janice received chemotherapy treatment at TSH in 2012 following breast cancer surgery. There will also be live performances by Saara Chaudry of Les Miserables and the Laura Lynn Band, as well as a live and silent auction and raffle draw.
