Supporting Women with Cancer

Thanks to Rider Nation, the annual Cameco Touchdown for Dreams pink game was a success.

Another $25,000 has been donated to the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency after Cameco volunteers sold pink blankets at the Oct. 27th Saskatchewan Roughriders game in Regina. A partnership between Cameco, SCA and the Saskatchewan Roughriders, Cameco Touchdown for Dreams makes dreams come true for women with life-threatening cancer.

Susan's Dream - 2017

Susan Harty's dream request is something you would see on a reality TV show.

The 50-year-old mother of a teenage daughter asked for a kitchen makeover in her Regina home.

In the midst of battling life-threatening cancer, Susan applied to the Cameco Touchdown for Dreams program hoping her wish would come true.

Thanks to an amazing donation from Bella Vista Custom Kitchens, that dream became a reality this week with a major renovation.

After Susan moved out of her home on Sunday afternoon, Bella Vista staff and Cameco volunteers worked day and night until Thursday morning to complete the makeover – which includes new flooring, cabinets, countertops, appliances, lighting, paint and more.

Valued at nearly $40,000, this type of kitchen makeover would typically take a month. But given the special dream request, Bella Vista brought it to life in four days.

Entering its sixth year, Cameco Touchdown for Dreams is a partnership between the Saskatchewan Roughriders, Saskatchewan Cancer Agency and Cameco.

  • The program has granted 33 wishes during its first five years.
  • Due to tremendous support from Rider Nation, the program will grant seven dreams this year.
  • The Cameco Touchdown for Dreams program visited the Mosaic Stadium at the Oct. 27th game, where Cameco employees, Rider wives and Cancer Agency staff sold pink Roughrider merchandise to fans. Sale profits are used to help make the dreams come true.
