We extend our heartfelt congratulations to Brian Anstice, affectionately known as “Coach Brian” in the community, for being awarded the prestigious Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee Medal. Despite facing a challenging battle with Multiple Myeloma undergoing chemotherapy, a stem cell transplant, and many other uncomfortable medications and treatments, Brian has been a huge figure in the cancer fundraising community.
One of Brian’s remarkable contributions is his role as a dedicated board member for the Cure Cancer Foundation’s Toast of the Town event. He has also helped raise hundreds of thousands, if not millions of dollars by volunteering for the Glenn Anderson Day of Golf.
The Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee Medal was created to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the Throne as Queen of Canada. The medal honours the late Queen’s service to Canada. This prestigious award acknowledges individuals like Brian for their significant contributions to the province of Alberta.
Congratulations, Brian, on this well-deserved award!
World Cancer Day
As we celebrate Brian’s well-deserved recognition, it is important to acknowledge that February 4th is World Cancer Day. This day is a global initiative to raise awareness and funds for cancer research, treatment, care, and, ultimately, finding a cure. Let’s raise awareness and support the Cure Cancer Foundation’s mission together.
Cure Cancer Foundation funding has supported cancer breakthroughs in Alberta, such as the groundbreaking Linic MR. Our funding will also help build new state-of-the-art labs that can produce CAR-T cells here in Alberta.
