Call for nominations

The BC Cancer Agency is looking for exceptional individuals whose efforts make a difference in the lives of those living with cancer as candidates for the agency’s 2011 Community Caregiver Award.

The award, sponsored by the BC Cancer Foundation, recognizes the contributions of individuals in our communities who help improve the lives of those living with cancer.
