CRWall Cancer Bombers

Dress for the Cause

This year the CRWall Cancer Bombers Team raised $525.00 to help with cancer research.

How Did It All Begin?

The Breast Cancer Society of Canada was created by a passionate family searching for a cure for their daughter Pam.  Over 20 years later, Pam continues to be our inspiration.  Because of this inspiration the Breast Cancer Society created Dress for the Cause, an annual event, held to celebrate breast cancer awareness month.  Dress for the Cause and the Breast Cancer Society of Canada raise money for the research into the detection, prevention, treatment and cure of breast cancer.

Why is this Important?

  • 1 in 9 Canadian women is expected to develop breast cancer during her lifetime
  • This year an estimated 22,700 Canadian women will be diagnosed with breast cancer
  • Approximately 14 Canadian women will die of breast cancer every day
  • Of all estimated new cancers in women, breast cancer cases make up an estimated 26%.  For every 4 men diagnosed with breast cancer 1 will die.
