In 1990, having received a cancer diagnosis for his wife, Susan Wener, Mr. Jonathan Wener approached the Goodman Cancer Research Centre to establish an efficient way to contribute to the expedient improvement of the management of cancer.
His choice and decision to create a fund raising event and provide funds for the research link of the chain proved to be a judicious and profitable investment.
The proceeds of this event have, so far, enhanced the productivity of research results coming from the Centre and have had a measurable impact. Most importantly, these funds have helped in responding to the reality of the disease, which demands continuing elucidation it is adequately controlled. Défi Canderel has made a significant contribution to the next generation of first-rate researchers.
