As I have gotten older there have been more than a few people in my every day life that have been directly affected with cancer. The Canadian Cancer Society estimates that approximately 31,100 women will be affected by breast, uterine, ovarian or cervical cancer in 2009. With its increasing prevalence, it is important that fundraising initiatives be put into place so that important research can be done.
Along with the Girls Night In fundraising idea, a new website www.GirlsNightInForCancer.ca makes it easy to host a Girls Night In. This website includes: online event registration, a downloadable host kit, party theme ideas and evites. By supporting Girls Night In you are helping the Canadian Cancer Society fund leading-edge research for women’s cancers, specifically breast, cervical, ovarian and uterine cancer. Money raised goes toward funding important women's cancer research. In 2008, the Canadian Cancer Society funded more that $5.5 million to research women's cancers, including a dozen research grants and awards to researchers in the province of Ontario. Money raised also goes toward cancer clinical trial research that tests new and better ways to prevent, treat and diagnose cancer.
