Description

Please Join Chatter & Chai in the fight against Breast Cancer. We have a Fabulous evening planned on White Rock Beach (Beecher Place) Fusion catered Gourmet Appies & Desserts from Soulful Kitchen skillfully cooked by Chef Lucky Dhillon.

South Asian Women in Canada are more likely to be diagnosed with later stage breast cancer compared to the general population. South Asian Women are also more likely to be diagnosed with breast cancer at stages two and three compared to their peers.

  • 1 in 4 (26%) cancers diagnosed in women in Canada are breast cancer
  • 1 in 30 probability a Canadian woman will die from breast cancer during her lifetime
  • In Canada, the 5-year rate for breast cancer is 87%
  • Breast cancer mortality rates have decreased by 44% since the peak in 1987 / Let's keep bringing this number down

Lots of FUN suprises and Information will be shared at this event besides the obvious view of the beach, great food and amazing women in the room.

Our Keynote Speakers:

Kyra Wong from the Magical Unicorn Project a Vancouver-based vice president and national advocate for the advancement of women. She challenges the status quo and is willing to boldly stand out and speak up to champion gender equality. She has learned through her own personal adversity that every journey in life is a gift from which we can create magic, if we so choose. Through conversation, collaboration and inspiration, Kyra is following her heart to pursue her dream of helping women smash through glass ceilings, reach for the stars, and create joyful and empowered lives within a society that values true equality.

Kyra has embraced a new, purposeful challenge of helping women succeed through the Magical Unicorn Project, which encompasses the importance of both men and women working together as a unified front towards a future centered around S.P.A.R.K.L.E. and inclusion.

ALSO

Saroj Ludhera had breast cancer 15 years ago. After having surgery and chemotherapy, she wanted to take action. She knew that screening rates were low among South Asian women. She coordinated a Canadian society project that brought breast cancer prevention information to the South Asian community. In 2013, Saroj helped organize the mobile screening at a senior’s center. Of the 51 women who registered for mammographies, 50% had never been screened before. She is coming in to Share her Story & Educate.
