Donation brings boost to cancer care

Tru Value Foods donates $50,000 to B.C. Cancer Foundation

Tru Value foods recently donated $50

A $50,000 donation from Tru Value Foods to the B.C. Cancer Foundation will help ensure Vancouver Island patients continue to have access to the latest in cancer care.

The donation will support local improvements to patient care taking place at the B.C. Cancer Agency’s Vancouver Island Centre. It’s a cause that especially hits home for Dean Clarke of Tru Value Foods, having firsthand experience when it comes to the disease.

“I have personally experienced the challenge of dealing with cancer,” said Clarke. “If we can make it even slightly better in any way for someone else, it would give me a huge sense of satisfaction that we have done the best we can.”

He knows the importance of supporting cancer treatment and care at the local level through Tru Value Foods, which has locations in five different communities throughout Vancouver Island including Saanich.

“We have the privilege and honour of providing a service and supporting community issues like cancer research and treatment,” said Clarke. “It’s what we do as a member of this community in support of one another.”
