Brought to you by the Barrhaven Lions Club, and organized by Doreen Lebano, a former QCH patient, over the past 10 years the Annual Mother & Daughter Gala has raised funds for care at Queensway Carleton Hospital of $103,000 total!
During the long hours of Doreen’s treatments for TTP (a rare blood disorder called Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura), her daughter, Angela, would keep her company. When she was healthy again, she decided to organize a fundraising event for QCH. Her daughter suggested a mother-and-daughter gala dinner. The Mother & Daughter Gala has been held every May for the past 10 years and to date, the gala event has raised $103,000 for cancer care at QCH.
Thank you, Doreen, Sandy and Barrhaven Lions Club!
