Feast of Fortune fundraiser just the ticket for Vancouver women potentially affected by breast cancer

Chinese New Year event especially beneficial to Asian community

Vancouver, Feb. 7, 2013 – Breast cancer survivor Ju Ng is appealing to Vancouverites to buy tickets to the 2013 Scotiabank Feast of Fortune dinner to raise funds for a 3D ultrasound breast scanner because she knows first-hand how important it is to have access to the latest in breast cancer detection technology.
