This May marks the Windsor Cancer Centre Foundation’s 6th Lockout Cancer campaign. Lock Out Cancer raises funds in support of cancer awareness, research, and treatment for patients in our community. 100% of funds raised stay local.

This year, five powerhouse women are sharing their stories with the hopes of raising awareness and funds to support local cancer care as Lock Out Cancer ambassadors; Pam Brajak Mady, Paula DeVito, Tina Roy, Kathleen Turner, and Dr. Sindu Kanjeekal, who is also the Chief of Oncology for the Windsor Regional Cancer Program.

Dr. Sindu Kanjeekal has always been an advocate for cancer screening. After being diagnosed with cancer herself in December 2022, she believes it saved her life, and wanted to get her message out about the importance of screening.

“My story is the power of early detection and the gift of exceptional care right here in our community,” said Dr. Kanjeekal, “Thanks to generous donations to the Windsor Cancer Centre Foundation along with exceptional medical care, I was able to receive all my surgical and oncological care right here in Windsor.”

In 2022, women accounted for over 57,000 visits to the Windsor Regional Cancer Centre. Funds raised support initiatives that reduce wait times, provides added comfort, and helps keep more patients close to home while receiving treatment.

Breast Reconstruction is a vital program, and funds raised through the 2023 Lock Out Cancer campaign will support the purchase of advanced cosmetic surgery tools such as the Liposuction and Cannula and surgical minidrop. Advanced tools like these improve the quality of care, and time of recovery, from breast reconstruction and other procedures. Funds raised will also support the Windsor Cancer Centre Foundation’s Dignity Robes program and Patient Assistance Fund.

The Windsor Cancer Centre Foundation’s Lock Out Cancer campaign takes place each spring during the month of May. Fundraising initiatives include Loonies for Lock Out, the purchase of signature jewelry, supporting an Ambassador, participating in a community promotion, or donating directly to the Windsor Cancer Centre Foundation’s Lock Out Cancer campaign.  All the details can be found at www.lockoutcancer.com.
