Lupus Ontario is the largest Canadian provincial organization focused on improving the lives of lupus patients and their families. Lupus Ontario’s mission is to provide vital support, education, awareness, advocacy and research through the fundraising efforts of our staff and volunteer community to help those with lupus live longer, healthier and better lives.
Lupus is an autoimmune disease where the body attacks itself causing inflammation, pain, and possible organ damage. Five million people suffer from lupus globally and there is currently no cure. Nine out of ten lupus patients are women, usually diagnosed between the ages of 15 and 45.
Why Lupus matters:
$75 = cost of facilities and materials for one face to face support group meeting
$100 = cost for 2 Lupus patients to attend a local education day
$350 = cost of annual web meeting software used for on-line support groups
Wellspring Cancer Support
Wellspring Cancer Support Foundation is a network of community-based cancer support centres and online programs that provide professionally-led programs and services to people living with cancer and to their loved ones. Wellspring’s programs help cancer patients and caregivers cope with the emotional, social, practical, informational and physical/functional challenges that come with a cancer diagnosis. They ease pain, anxiety, isolation and fatigue, and they improve people’s health outcomes. All programs are available free of charge and without a medical referral.
Why Wellspring matters:
$150 allows a child to participate in an expert-led peer group or receive personal counselling to help the family cope with cancer
$500 will provide two families with vital access to private, short-term counselling.
$1,000 allows 35 cancer patients to participate in an educational cooking session such as Nutrition and Breast Cancer or Super Healthy Strategies.
$1,500 will provide one cancer patient with a 20-week, personalized Cancer Exercise program to reduce their pain, improve their mobility and help them regain their physical well-being.
