Support Whole Person Cancer Care Regardless of Income

Author: Dr. Quinte Naturopathic Centre on 8 December 2010

Here is an opportunity for everyone who believes naturopathic care should be available to anyone regardless of income to make a difference. A colleague of mine Dugald Seely, ND is Director of Clinical Research & Epidemiology at the Canadian Collegue of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM). He has been involved in the Canada wide Aviva contest for funding to support Integrative Oncology. They have made it to the semi-finals of voting and with your support could be one of the winners!

With your voting help, Aviva will donate $100K to provide free care within a sustainable Ottawa-based facility for whole-person cancer care for those who cannot afford to pay out of pocket. If successful, this will be matched by an additional $200,000 in donations from CCNM and the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation (ORCF) for the creation of this center and provision of care. To see more details about this please log onto Aviva Community Fund . The goal is to get 10,000 votes between Dec. 2nd and Dec. 15th, 2010. Show your support by registering online and voting.

Feel free to forward this information to anyone you think would like to see more health care options available to cancer patients and cancer survivors. Hopefully this is just the beginning!

If you have any questions on the process or trouble trying to vote you can contact Dr. Seely's team at 1-866-241-2266 Ext 245.
