Cameco’s Touchdown for Dreams is back again this year – a chance to grant wishes for women fighting cancer.
Thanks to a partnership between Cameco, the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency and the Saskatchewan Roughriders, six women who are facing a life-threatening diagnosis of cancer may see their dreams come true.
Jonathon Huntington is the manager of Community Investment with Cameco. He says applications are available starting Tuesday, February 14.
“We take as many applications as we can – women with life-threatening cancer,” said Huntington. “You can nominate a neighbour, an aunt, a niece, a daughter. You don’t have to be related. You can get the application form at the Saskatchewan Cancer Clinic in Regina, or anywhere in the southern Saskatchewan area where this is a cancer clinic.”
The Cameco Touchdown for dreams program has granted at least 26 wishes in the last four years to women diagnosed with life-threatening cancer.
Huntington says applications will be adjudicated at the end of March.
“We want to encourage women from anywhere in Saskatchewan to apply for a dream,” Huntington says.
