Through Princess Margaret Cancer Centre’s annual Doves of Hope campaign, you can show your support for patients battling cancer.
For the past 12 years, the Doves of Hope Campaign has made it possible for the friends and family of patients fighting cancer to express their love and support. Each dove represents one unique person and the challenges they’ve faced. Each dove is also a symbol of solidarity, and sends a message of strength to all those whose lives have been affected by the disease.
It’s easy to make your own dove online. You can dedicate it to a loved one who has battled cancer, or to a doctor, nurse, volunteer, or caregiver—and you can tell their story, in as much or as little detail as you choose.
Your creation will be added to the 55,000 Doves of Hope that have been displayed online and in the atrium of the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre since the campaign first launched in 2001. And through Facebook and Twitter, you can share your Dove and raise awareness of the fight against cancer, and of the individuals whose lives it has touched.
You can also participate in the campaign in other ways—by contributing to the Dove page of a friend or loved one or by making a donation. Funds raised benefit Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, Canada’s leading cancer research centre and one of the top five centres of its kind in the world.
The Doves of Hope campaign gives you the opportunity to join with others in celebrating those you love this holiday season, and to create a visible sign of both hope and determination.
