Caregiver award needs nominees

Awards celebrate those who make a difference

Do you know someone who has gone above and beyond the call of duty in helping someone who is fighting a battle with cancer? If so, the BC Cancer Agency would like to hear about it.

The BC Cancer Agency is looking for exceptional individuals whose efforts help improve the lives of those living with cancer for their 2011 Community Caregiver Award.

Anyone who provides care to cancer patients in B.C. is eligible, including all members of the community from nurses to pharmacists to volunteers.

The recipient will receive a plaque, public recognition and $300 cash. The winner will be announced at the BC Cancer Agency’s annual conference Dec. 2 in Vancouver.

Nomination forms can be done online at www.bccancer.bc.ca/communitycareaward, by e-mail at conference@bccancer.bc.ca or toll free in B.C. at 1-800-663-3333, ext. 674626.

 

The deadline for nominations is Friday, September 30.                                            — News staff
