Haylie’s Story

When she received word to show up at Mosaic Stadium on October 6th, Haylie Bro, the first dream recipient in the 2021 Cameco Riders Touchdown for Dreams program, had absolutely no idea what was coming.

The sixteen year-old Grade 11 student from Regina has an aggressive form of brain stem cancer which was diagnosed earlier this year.

A bright, vibrant young woman, Haylie is determined to keep life as normal as possible while she undergoes treatment.

She continues her school work during treatments and uses her artistic talents to convey feelings about her cancer.

Mature beyond her years, Haylie’s dream application was modest and pragmatic. She simply asked for repairs for her family’s only vehicle, which they need to travel to medical appointments. Right now, they’re using a borrowed car.

At Mosaic Stadium, Haylie and her family, were presented with a surprise. Rather than repairing their old vehicle, Haylie was given the keys to a brand new SUV – on lease for two years from the Capital Automotive Group.

Haylie and her mother Danita Gilmour were overcome with emotion at times when seeing their new vehicle.

When asked what the dream means to their family, Danita said it best:

“This allows us to breathe.”

The Cameco Riders Touchdown for Dreams program is a partnership between Cameco, the Saskatchewan Roughriders, the Cancer Foundation of Saskatchewan, and the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency.
