An Open Letter to Donors
Rosalina was 5 years old when she was diagnosed two years ago with high risk neuroblastoma. We were heartbroken.
After having heard of the OICC through a family friend and meeting with Dr. Seely, its founder, we determined that this place was going to play a big part in Rosalina’s physical support and recovery. Little did we know it would also come to be an element of emotional support for her, through the various sweet interpersonal relationships that she has developed with her caretakers here over time.
WAYS TO GIVE
One of the most effective and helpful ways you can donate to OICC is by making a monthly donation. The benefits are ongoing as we can provide sustained, seamless care to a patient at OICC – with no interruptions, or no breaks in their care.
An ongoing donation allows us to plan ahead and provide the essential services in programs and treatment for a patient and their families at the OICC. These may include appointments with a naturopathic doctor, integrative treatments, mind/body programs to reduce stress, pain, nausea, and provision of nutritional counselling. You will receive updates on how your gift is helping a patient at OICC and their loved ones. Monthly donations minimize administration costs so allow us to more fully support a patient.
Make a One-Time Gift
Your generosity is changing how people live with cancer in our community. By making a gift today, you are providing a better quality of life for those who are living with cancer. Thank you for showing your support of integrative care at the OICC.
In Memory of a Loved One
Celebrating a life after death is a meaningful way to remember your loved one. Making a donation will provide supportive ongoing care to many OICC patients as they travel through their own personal journey. We will respectfully notify the family of your In Memory of donation should you request using the form below.
Make a Gift in Honour of Someone Special
Recognizing a milestone? A retirement? Or want to recognize someone special in your life? By donating to OICC we honour and celebrate those milestones with you by directing your donation to help a patient receive complementary treatment alongside conventional therapies.
Gift of Securities
If you are thinking of making a donation of securities (Stocks, Bonds, Mutual Funds), OICC is a good choice to consider. Please contact Heidi Vincent at firstname.lastname@example.org or 613-792-1222 to learn more.
Leaving Your Legacy Gift
Leaving a charitable component in your will allows OICC to continue the evidence-based work we do to help more cancer patients live a better quality of life, regardless of the stage they are in.
Your legacy gift will help us to continue working on innovative research, increase our programs and services, as well as provide subsidies to patients unable to afford integrative care due to unforeseen circumstances.
Regardless of whether this is your first will, or if you need to update it, we are here to help you, and answer any questions. Contact Heidi Vincent at email@example.com or 613-792-1222.Read the donor bill of rights
