For many of us cancer has touched our lives in one way or another.  It has for me; my mother, my grandmother, one of my closest friends who had preventative breast cancer surgery, and others who are close to my heart.

So when I hear about events that support cancer, I aim to support them in my own way.

We all know how important the care is to patients recovery, and that is why the Heart of Fashion in support of North York General Hospital‘s renowned breast cancer care facility is such an amazing event.

Coupling Toronto Fashion Week and Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Shops at Don Mills will be the host to the second annual ultimate cocktail party and fashion show on October 25th.

The evening will offer fine food and entertainment, including an exclusive runway show featuring all of the amazing retailers of Shops at Don Mills as well as its esteemed designers.  Hosted by Rosey Edeh of The Morning Show and anchor of the News at Noon on Global, the event will be one remembered for all.

The events mission will prove just how North York General Hospitals BMO Financial Group Breast Diagnostic Centre, boasts one of the GTA’s largest cancer care program for a community hospital and is the first hospital in the GTA to implement this revolutionary procedure.

With a fundraising goal of $680,000, proceeds will enable the BDC’s acquisition of leading edge technology, offering new breast cancer treatments and providing the best possible care for patients and their families.

Together with Heart of Fashion, Shops at Don Mills will also be offering a silent auction that will offer fabulous prizes including $500+ gift card from many of the fine retailers participating at the event.  There will also be a grand prize of a VIP package to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in London, England.

North York General Hospital values its relationship with community partners like Shops at Don Mills.  And through Heart of Fashion, the relationship will continue to benefit the community and allow the hospital to demonstrate how care is continuously improving as well as their ongoing leadership in breast cancer care.

This fun-filled evening will be a night to remember, so purchase tickets or make a donation at www.heartoffashion.ca

It truly is amazing to see all of the hard work and dedication from nurses and doctors. And it is even more amazing to see just how far we have come with technology and the advancements being made.

It only takes one gesture from the rest of us, no matter the size, to help make a difference in someone’s life.

For the last 7+ years I have immersed myself in the “mom life”. My blog, appropriately named Me, Myself and Kids is my life; the challenges, the laughter, and the tears. But I also offer my own version of motherly advice. In doing so, I’ve designating myself as an MD or “Mom Doc”. Not because I know it all. Don’t get me wrong. It’s an open perspective; my learnings shared so you can take the good, bad and ugly and adapt it to your own family life. So please join me as I share all of the crazy and overwhelming thoughts and experiences of the mom life with Me, Myself and Kids.
