Lock Out Cancer Campaign Ceremony Returns In Person

WINDSOR, ON.  The grand finale of our Lock Out Cancer campaign takes place this Sunday, May 29th, at 1pm.  Five Ambassadors, alongside family and friends, will gather for a moving ceremony that will see each Ambassador lock their ceremonial lock on the healing garden wall.  The ceremony will take place in a tented outdoor setting just outside the Windsor Regional Cancer Centre doors, at the southwest corner of the Windsor Regional Hospital – Met Campus property.

“We are stronger together.  This ceremony is a powerful showing of the continued efforts to Lock Out Cancer.” Says Houida Kassem, Executive Director of the Windsor Cancer Centre Foundation.  This year’s Lock Out Cancer Campaign Ceremony marks its in-person return after two years.

Ashley Sarros, one of this year’s Ambassadors, will address the crowd of family, friends, and distinguished guests.  Four other Ambassadors include Dana Stevens, Stephanie Giacalone, Karma Jasey, and Brooke Spitse will also be in attendance.

We invite you, members of our local media, to attend this powerful event.  The Lock Out Cancer Campaign Ceremony humanizes the very reason this campaign, and the Windsor Cancer Centre Foundation, exists.
