Thank you St-Charles Elementary school!

VOBOC wants to take the time to thank Principal Mat Canavan, the staff and of course the students at St. Charles School for the generous donation from their crazy hat day.

St-Charles Elementary’s support helps to ensure that VOBOC will continue to reach newly diagnosed adolescent and young adult (AYA) cancer patients by supplying free tools, resources, and diversions to help educate and empower them to be more active partners in their care.

What a generous donation!

Thank you so much to Marla, Olivia and Annabel Gutherz on behalf of The Morrie Neftin Foundation, for their $20,000 donation in memory of Jacqui Gold, a young adult who VOBOC helped during their cancer.

What an inspiring story!

Congratulations Lia Loebenberg! Lia Loebenberg is graduating from Royal West Academy, where a science award has been established in her sister Laura’s honour. We are honored to share that Laura Loebenberg is the spokesperson for VOBOC during our annual fundraisers.

Laura Loebenberg & Lia Loebenberg we are so proud of you both and we are truly inspired!
