Fire Fighters Association L1212 Benevolent Fund
The Cause: Supporting Cancer Care in Your Community
Fighting for better cancer care today – and for the future.
Starting in 2024, it’s estimated that over 100,000 new cancer cases will be diagnosed in Ontario every year due to our growing and aging population. By 2030 that number is expected to climb to an estimated 115,300 cases.
Help us keep up with this increasing demand and send more patients home to their loved ones by supporting better cancer care in our community.
By purchasing our gear or making a donation to the Mississauga Fire Fighter’s Pink Truck Tour fundraising campaign you’re supporting the residents of Mississauga, Peel Region and West Toronto who rely on Trillium Health Partners (THP) for rapid cancer diagnosis, surgery, chemotherapy, radiation and psychosocial care.
New Treatment Technologies for Coordinated Care
Last year the Carlo Fidani Regional Cancer Centre at THP became the first hospital in Eastern Canada to treat patients using HyperArc for multiple brain tumours in a single session. Staff are now using the QA Phantom, a specialized device that mimics the patient’s head to automate advance testing of complex treatment plans on the HyperArc, dramatically speeding up patient therapy and therefore improving access.
Community support enables THP to continue transforming cancer care in our community through better care and leading-edge equipment today, and for generations to come.
Join the fight today for a healthier tomorrow.
Shirts can be purchased at any of the tour stops or online. Online orders must be picked up at a tour stop.
You can check out our tour stops in the Events section of our website below.
For the safety of our community and partners, the tour stops will look a little bit different this year:
Each truck stop will be outdoors
Shirts will be individually wrapped
Tap payment also available
We ask that anyone coming to a tour stop to pick up gear abide by safety precautions and stay home if not feeling well.
Thank you for supporting the Cancer Care Program at Trillium Health Partners!
