On November 5, Cambrian College students in Police Foundations, Child and Youth Care, and Early Childhood Education will be assisting with the Teddy Bear Picnic Auction. The event is organized in support of pediatric/childhood cancer research and features fun activities for children and families, including a Teddy Bear Auction, face painting, and prizes.
Students from Cambrian College’s Police Foundations program and representatives from the Canadian Cancer Society have been planning and fundraising since the event’s launch on October 11. To date, this annual event has raised more than $110,000 for the childhood cancer research.
This year, Josée Jewers and her seven-year-old daughter, Kylee Jewers, will be part of the Teddy Bear Picnic Auction. More than two years ago, Kylee was diagnosed with soft-tissue sarcoma, and she underwent five surgeries over the course of nine months, as well as chemotherapy treatments in Toronto for six months. Kylee is expected to be monitored every three months for the next five years in Sudbury and Toronto.
Join us in the fight against pediatric cancer by supporting this event and adopting a teddy bear!
