WE FUND CARE is part of the

Ryan Saturno Patient Amenities Fund

A fund that gives more than it takes...

 

Who do we fund care for?

Families with children or young adults aged 0-18 going through a current battle with any cancer related illness within Ontario. You can learn more about the assistance we offer and apply for or support our assistance program by clicking the buttons below.

Why do we fund care for families in need?

In short, because we've been there. In early 2016, Ryan Saturno was taken from us after a long and strong fight with soft-tissue cancer at age 26. A fund was created shortly after in his memory by his family and close friends in an effort to help alleviate the financial and emotional strain on families that are going through a similar journey. To learn more about the man who we do this all for, click his picture to the right.

How do we fund care for families in need?

We organize an ongoing annual golf tournament and other fundraising events; and accept donations from corporations, organizations, and private citizens. We also partner with many organizations that align with our mission to provide assistance to families in need with  a goal to maximum the effectiveness of our dollar through as little financial waste as possible. To learn more about how we have been funding care across Ontario, and to see how you can contribute to the fund and our mission, keep scrolling down.
