Fashion For Life supports children living with cancer in Waterloo Region

Kitchener, ON – This year’s Fashion For Life is supporting Grand River Hospital Foundation. Proceeds will help children with chronic illnesses, like cancer, receive the lifesaving care they need close to home.

Grand River Hospital is the largest provider of hospital-based care for children treating 20,000 children each year. The children’s program offers treatment and support right here at home to children with cancer.

“All the pediatricians here get to know these children quite well. We are an amazing multi-disciplinary team that provides exceptional care to our community and we can’t do it on our own,” says Dr. Martha Linkletter, a pediatrician at Grand River Hospital. “We need financial support, moral support and with our community’s support amazing programs can continue and make a huge difference in children’s lives.”

Over the past ten years, Fashion For Life has been dedicated to raising funds to support our community in the battle against cancer.

“Cancer is a terrible disease no one should have to live with, but especially children who have their whole lives ahead of them. This is why Fashion for Life has existed for ten years and why this year we are proud to support Grand River Hospital Foundation,” says Audrey Wilson, founder of Fashion for Life.

The event is taking place at Lot 42 at 6 p.m. on Thursday, April 25. Media are invited to attend.
