Simone Sings Praises for Cancer Care

July 31, 2019


Simone Gunn (middle) had her last chemotherapy treatment just two days before her 45th birthday. To celebrate she held a very special birthday fundraiser for our Northern Cancer Fund.

"Everybody at the Hospital was just wonderful, from the Cancer Centre staff, to my oncologist, to my surgeon. Everyone. I wanted to say thank you some way."

Simone's friends and family banded together, shared her story, and donated $4,105 to an online fundraiser Simone had created.

"I had no idea it would take off like it did! I'm so grateful."

So are we, Simone! Thank you so much to you and everyone who supported you on your journey. This donation will fund better cancer diagnosis, treatment, and research for the people of Northwestern Ontario.

Pictured, from the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Foundation, accepting Simone’s generous donation are Elaine Graydon (left), Manager, Special Events and Glenn Craig (right), President & CEO.
