About Elizabeth and Mary
We are two high school students whose lives have been greatly impacted by a cancer diagnosis. Mary lost her mother to cancer and Elizabeth's father is currently battling an incurable form of the disease. Inspired by a leadership workshop at our school (SFX), we decided to host a gala in order to raise funds for the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation. The Cancer Foundation has incredible support programs for families facing the turmoil and grief caused by cancer, including a program called CLIMB -  Children's Lives Include Moments of Bravery - focused on helping teens like us cope with the cancer diagnosis of a parent. One of our teachers (Mr. McGuire) is an amazing musician. He and his band have donated their time and talent for our event.
