Teaming Up for Better Tomorrows
Joining the Cancer Care Here at Home campaign is a team of passionate, dedicated and accomplished senior volunteers from across the island.
At the helm of this team, as Campaign Chair, is island-born and raised (former) NHL player, Stanley Cup winner and current investment and wealth advisor with RBC Wealth Management, Mike McPhee.
“Cancer knows no boundaries – young or not so young, worker or student, parent or child – it touches us all.
My family and I, like most Cape Bretoners, have first-hand experience with the pain and devastation that can be caused by a cancer diagnosis. The hard truth is, cancer affects more than the individual diagnosed. It affects entire families, friends, co-workers and communities.
My wish is to look to the future to build upon cancer care in Cape Breton to support all those affected, and I am pleased to lead this campaign and be joined by a group of passionate volunteers to make this a reality.
From an early age, and over my hockey career, I have learned the importance of working together and being part of a team. I ask you to rally with us and support our healthcare teams to make the best possible cancer care a reality, right here at home.“

Joining Mike as Honourary Chair is the nationally recognized and respected Chief Terrance (Terry) Paul, Chief and CEO of the community of Membertou.
“In Cape Breton-Unamaki, cancer impacts all of us. Whether you’re supporting a loved one through a difficult diagnosis, or fighting for your own health, the Cape Breton Cancer Centre’s role in that battle is crucial. Now is our time to come together as a community to provide state-of-the-art resources for the future of cancer care on our island.”

Supporting the Chairs is an exemplary cabinet, all familiar with healthcare concerns and major fundraising initiatives. They’re supporting the Cancer Care Here at Home campaign for one prominent reason – they do not want Cape Bretoners to be required to leave the Island to receive cancer care.
