BREAST SAVER: The Providence Health Care Breast Centre at Mount Saint Joseph Hospital opened in 2009 to provide quick access to tests and to reduce wait times for diagnosis. The first of its kind, it has seen more than 12,000 patients come through its doors, but after six busy years, clinic space has become constrained. Renovations are needed to create additional consultation rooms to help meet increased patient demands and accommodate private and sensitive patient and family conversations around diagnoses. That is why 300 guests filed into the Hotel Georgia for the first Breast Ever Luncheon. It was chaired by Stanley Mak, sponsored by Ron Ho and emceed by Dawn Chubai. Guests enjoyed an afternoon of fun, fashion and philanthropy while generating nearly $50,000 towards the $300,000 expansion.
