One of the most significant legacies of the great, 60-kilomtre-walk fundraiser is the funding of Weekend to End Women’s Cancers Chair in Breast Cancer Research. Dr. Christine Friedenreich has filled this chair and her expertise and interest make her a perfect fit.
Dr. Friendenreich is a pioneer in the field of exercise and cancer. Long before the benefits of exercise became common knowledge, she was investigating the influence of physical activity on cancer control across the spectrum of the cancer journey – from prevention to diagnosis to survivorship.
Stay tuned for more information on the work she has planned to enhance the provincial breast cancer care programs in this province.
