Cancer SUCKS! Everybody knows somebody
CANCER SUCKS! What now?
In seconds, using technology, we can search the web for answers. Using technology we can go on Facebook and find each other, IN SECONDS. Why can't we affect cancer treatment quickly? The answer is, together, WE CAN!
When I started the Facebook group –'I bet I can find 1,000,000 people who hate cancer' I never dreamed that it would explode with over 1.8 million people and climbing.
Your stories, your experiences, your family and friends are what bring this site to life and keep our precious loved ones stories alive. Sharing our stories and supporting one another is important and meaningful but now we need to do more...we need to help find answers and to do that we need research dollars.
I approached Princess Margaret Hospital - one of the top 5 Cancer Research Centres in the WORLD and asked how we could make a difference in cancer treatment RIGHT NOW!
My search led to Dr. David Jaffray who has taken a very different approach to cancer treatment; he believes that the development of cutting edge technology stands to have the biggest impact on future cancer interventions. Even the smallest technological advances will culminate into big change, affecting how surgery and radiation treatment are performed and the creation of a new breed of researchers who exploit technology to find answers.
A NEW WAY OF THINKING
Establishing a new Institute is Dr. Jaffray's plan to bring the power of technology to the delivery of high performance, effective cancer interventions. Marrying together best science, the best technology and the best research facilities making the world of science fiction a reality for family and friends effected by this hideous disease.
Dr. Jaffray and his team have THREE IMMEDIATE AND TANGIBLE GOALS -
1 – INVENTING NEW WAYS OF SEEING AND TREATING CANCER. Dr. Jaffrey creates and specializes in new 3D imaging models. Dr. Jaffray and his team will create, test and bring to market inventive new devices that will eventually help thousands of cancer patients worldwide.
2 - TRAIN STAFF TO USE TECHNOLOGY TO AFFECT TREATMENT. The new Institute will bring together top students from around the world to train with technology and medicine - working together to find new ways to make treatment less invasive.
3 - BY USING TECHNOLOGY TO UNDERSTANDING CANCER BETTER WE CAN FIND BETTER TREATMENTS, PREVENT IT - CURE IT!

I have approached Princess Margaret Hospital (a world renowned cancer research and treatment facility) and together we are creating ways for us to say Cancer SUCKS!
Doctors at Princess Margaret Hospital believe a key area for making progress in cancer treatment is to create, enhance and enable technology to refine our knowledge – making treatments, surgery and outcomes better and better.
Let's fund smart ideas that are going to make small but immediate changes. I use my iPhone to find my friends anywhere – I want to see technology finding tumours that fast!
