CancerCare's Young Professionals Committee Virtual Fundraiser Comedy Show

CancerCare's Young Professionals Committee (YPC) hosted its inaugural virtual fundraiser comedy show, StandUp4CancerCare, on June 18 in support of the YPC Scholarship Program. Thanks to many generous donors, not only did we meet our fundraising goal of $2,500 raised during the event, which is equivalent to one additional scholarship we can award to a young adult attending college who recently lost a parent to cancer, but we were able to exceed it. Many thanks to those who participated and made this event a resounding success. For more information on the YPC or the scholarship, please visit our website.
