1 in 8 Canadian women
will develop breast cancer in her lifetime
She is our sister, mother, wife, grandmother, aunt, colleague, neighbour, friend. Help us find a cure.
The CURE Foundation is a vehicle powered by the energy of giving. CURE provides Canadians from all walks of life the opportunity to contribute to the fight against breast cancer. Become part of a community that makes a difference.
What We Fund
We fund basic and clinical research because science is the key to finding a cure.
We purchase much-needed hospital equipment to ensure timely and effective diagnosis and treatment of those affected with the disease.
We support community projects because those living with breast cancer today need support that extends far beyond what our health care system can do on its own.
CURE has joined forces with the Cedars Cancer Foundation and the Bell Fund to fund the production of an innovative medical accessory developed by two radio-oncology technologists and a medical garment specialist. The Rad.Onc.Bra was created to reduce the severe burns and skin irritations suffered by breast cancer patients undergoing radiation therapy.
Appointments to the Order of Canada
It is with great pride that CURE announces that our founder, Diane Proulx-Guerrera and her husband, Salvatore Guerrera have been appointed members of the Order of Canada by Her Excellency the Right Honourable Julie Payette, Governor General of Canada, for their philanthropic efforts in support of research into breast and prostate cancer, autism spectrum disorders, and intellectual disabilities. Congratulations Diane and Sal!
