Vote YES to Cost-Free Integrative Cancer Care in Canada!

Canadians are one step closer to making cost-free, whole-person cancer care a reality through tremendous public support in the Aviva Community Fund competition! The proposal has reached Round 2 of the competition and is sitting in 3rd place!!

"Every three minutes, a Canadian is diagnosed with cancer. Wanting to implement every measure to overcome this disease, the majority (~ 80%) of people turn to complementary and integrative therapies to regain some measure of control over their lives.

Not everyone can afford this care.

With this initiative we are asking for $100,000 from the Aviva Community Fund. This amount will be TRIPLED to a total of $300,000 by equal contributions from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) and the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation (ORCF). All funds will go to providing no cost whole-person care to hundreds of cancer patients in the Ottawa Region.

Success of this initiative will allow the creation of a lasting program delivered to those who would not otherwise have the option. If you are interested in learning more and/or becoming involved, please contact syoung@ccnm.edu.

Cast your vote - every day for the next 9 days - and help make sustainable, accessible integrative cancer care a reality in Canada! Click here to register, then get VOTING!

Every person has 9 days to vote 9 times.

Thank you on behalf of the people with cancer and their loved ones who will benefit immensely from making this project a success!!
