Lock Out Cancer Campaign

This May, Support Lock Out Cancer

In 2021, Windsor Regional Cancer Centre saw 1,280 women newly diagnosed with cancer. In that same timeframe, women accounted for over 32 thousand visits to the Windsor Cancer Centre for treatment and care. 100% of funds raised from our Lock Out Cancer campaign will remain local. This campaign funds initiatives that reduce wait times, provides added comfort, and helps keep more patients close to home while receiving treatment.

Lock Out Cancer is a fundraising campaign of the Windsor Cancer Centre Foundation. Every year during the month of May, fundraising efforts are focused to support cancer awareness, research and treatment for women living in our region. There are many ways to support this campaign.
