Ida and I started this fund in 2007 soon after her leukemia diagnosis. We were shocked and heartbroken to learn that many cancer patients had to choose between treatment and basic necessities like food and rent or sometimes even transportation to the hospital. This may sound incredible to you but it is true.
Over the 11 years more than $1 million has been raised and donated to Ida’s Fund. As grateful as we are for this support, the need for assistance remains far greater than the Fund’s resources. So every year we do the PMH walk with the hope of raising donations to continue the Fund’s good work.
I don’t have to tell you about the cruelty of cancer. The only thing any of us can do is try to help.
Ida’s Fund is administered by the doctors and nurses and social workers at Princess Margaret Hospital. They know the patients and check carefully to make sure that money goes to help those with the greatest need.
The cost of one restaurant dinner out can mean a huge difference to someone fighting the battle of his or her life.
Please help us by sponsoring our team or one of our team members. You will automatically receive a donation receipt for a donation of $15 or more.
Thank you for your generosity.
