In May 1997, the CURE Foundation inaugurated NATIONAL DENIM DAY, its main fundraiser. This event is held annually on the Tuesday following Mother’s Day.
The generosity of the many donors who have contributed to the CURE Foundation for breast cancer has enabled CURE to lend the financial support necessary to create resources that will improve the outcome for those affected by breast cancer.
CURE has lent its financial support to organizations, universities and projects to aid in many areas of breast cancer research. CURE also supports many Canadian hospitals in the purchase of state-of-the-art equipment that provides a quicker and more precise procedure in the detection and treatments of breast cancer as well as easier biopsy procedures.
The CURE Foundation also funds projects and community programs that promote breast cancer awareness and education.
