Cameco Touchdown for Dreams
Cameco Touchdown for Dreams enters its second year in the spring of 2013 – and if you know of a deserving woman battling a life-threatening diagnosis of cancer, nominate her today.
The deadline for applications is April 1, 2013. A small committee will select five women to receive a dream come true.
The program, announced May 25, 2012, aims to raise more than $250,000 during the next three years through an annual spring gala and by selling pink Rider merchandise at a Rider game in Regina. Watch video
Proceeds help grant the wishes of women living with cancer, and fund a mobile unit to travel through northern Saskatchewan to screen for cancer and promote healthy lifestyles.
To make a donation, please visit the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency website.
Megan Wells, a 27-year-old mother of a two-year-old, is this year's first recipient of a dream-come-true. To learn more about Megan's cancer journey and the Cameco Touchdown for Dreams program, watch Megan's Story.
Megan, who was diagnosed with a rare form of oral cancer a year and a half ago, asked for improvements to her home, to make life more comfortable for her and her young daughter, as she continues her cancer journey.
North Ridge Development volunteers and nearly 50 Cameco employees worked together, along with support of many other local organizations, to make Megan's wish come true.
Watch Megan's reaction to the big reveal in this video as she takes her first look at a brand new kitchen, freshly painted walls and beautifully landscaped yard on June 22nd. We hope these improvements will help the cancer survivor enjoy life with her young daughter after a difficult year of treatments.
