Buzz off Joins Cancer Crush
Buzz Off Cancer began in 2018 and invited participants, or “buzzees,” to shave their heads in support of local cancer patients. All funds raised benefited the QMG Oncology Patient Assistance Fund to provide financial support for patients undergoing cancer treatment. The event was held in 2018 and 2019 but was put on hold in 2020 due to COVID-19. In its first two years, Buzz Off Cancer raised $65,000.
The common missions of Buzz Off Cancer and Cancer Crush provided an opportunity to bring the two events together.
Both Buzz Off Cancer and Cancer Crush seek to bring our community together to help patients facing the hardships that come with a cancer diagnosis. By bringing the two events together, we can have an even larger impact on our community’s patients.
