WICC is celebrating our 20th anniversary this year and the WICC Annual Breakfast for Cancer is entering its 19th year.
The primary objective of the breakfast is to provide information that will help guests achieve a better understanding of cancer and its effect on our lives.
Join us this year to hear from special guest Bobbie Goldie. When Bobbie was diagnosed with breast cancer on December 4th 2015 she began working tirelessly to continue to be a wife, mom, friend, aunt, cousin, employee, leader, and peer. As this is a struggle every day, she continued to expand her toolbox, and started a blog as her logical next step . . . to share her journey, good days and bad . . .
On July 29th Bobbie was told that she was cancer free. She continues to pursue her career at Chubb Canada in Major Accounts and also keeps her focus and dedication on her family.
