New calendar helps local children with cancer

A new calendar featuring a Massey child is available from the Ontario Parents Advocating for Children with Cancer, a registered Ontario charity that assists families of children with cancer.

Sarai Porrettalt, the administrator of the charity, says the calendar features Isabelle, a child from Massey who was diagnosed with cancer.

She says the 2021 calendar features the children’s stories written by their parents in their own words and important childhood cancer awareness facts.

Porrettalt says the funds raised from the sale of the calendars will support families that access the charity’s free programs and services.

Porrettalt says all proceeds of sales will fund in-hospital support through its Parent Liaison program, community-based childhood cancer parent support groups throughout Ontario, hospital parking reimbursements, distribution of gift cards for gas and food, and advocacy on issues of importance to childhood cancer families.
People can purchase the calendar at www.opacc.org/shop for $15 each ($10 each for orders of 3+).
