The Sue Deacon Cup
April 7 & 8, 2017
Congratulations! This year the Sue Deacon Memorial Cup raised over $110,000 in support of the Sue Deacon Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. In the past four years, the event has rasied over $447,000.Thank you to the women and men who come out to play and raise funds as well to the sponsors and donors who have helped to make this tournament such a resounding success.
This year in Canada, 2,800 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer and half will not survive past five years. In 2016, the Sue Deacon Cup Committee and Ovarian Cancer Canada created the Sue Deacon Ovarian Cancer Research Fund to help improve the outcomes for those women. All proceeds from this year’s tournament will go directly into the fund where researchers are working to develop early detection techniques, improved treatments and, ultimately, a cure.
