New Orleans Mardi Gras comes to Calgary at the 2nd annual Unmasking the Reality of Lung Cancer Gala.
“22,000 people died in 2019 directly because of lung cancer and since this kills more people than breast, colon and colorectal cancer combined, there is a paramount need for research funding” says Diane Colton, one of the 19% of survivors who live beyond the 5-year mark. “Most will die within a year of being diagnosed.”
To raise funds and awareness, Colton and volunteers on the Unmasking the Reality of Lung Cancer committee invite Calgarians to a New Orleans style Mardi Gras Fundraising Gala!
A Cajun themed dinner by Calgary’s “Great Events Catering” .
Entertainment and dancing to the music of the Kimberlites will be included.
There will be a Dando Dance ballroom demonstration and attendees will learn to Mambo!
Meet with lead researchers from the University of Calgary and doctors who will be there alongside lung cancer survivors and their families.
Research funding and action can find answers to the root causes and earlier diagnosis – which may extend both quality and length of life.
Special thanks to:
Sue Deyell, Morning Show Host at 770 CHQR, who will be MC for the evening.
