GasTOPS's 2017 Fundraising Goal

Purchase of a DNA Replicator for Cancer Research labs at The Ottawa Hospital and an Ultrasound Stretcher for the Breast Health Centre.

GasTOPS launch 10th Workplace Campaign in support of Cancer Research at The Ottawa Hospital and the Breast Health Centre.

This year, GasTOPS employees set an ambitious goal of purchasing both a DNA Replicator for Cancer Research at The Ottawa Hospital and an Ultrasound Stretcher for the Breast Health Centre. Both pieces of equipment are essential to the work being done with cancer care and research at The Ottawa Hospital. 

Cancer Research at The Ottawa Hospital:

Research breakthroughs at The Ottawa Hospital mean better care and lifesaving medicine. The Ottawa Hospital relentlessly pursue answers to the world’s most challenging health care problems with knowledge, experience and care. This research is fuelled by a passion to create made-in-Ottawa solutions for a healthier world.

By investing in cancer research at The Ottawa Hospital, GasTOPS is supporting innovative research right here at home as The Ottawa Hospital undertakes some of the most important clinical trials and groundbreaking genetic research in the history of the collective battle with cancer.

Your support will purchase a DNA Replicator which allows researchers to generate DNA, so they can develop these new targeted therapies which target and kill genetic mutations in cancer cells without damaging healthy ones.

The Ottawa Hospital Breast Health Centre:

  • The Ottawa Hospital Breast Health Centre has the largest patient volume than any other centre in Canada. This year alone, 36,000 women will walk through our doors—1,000 will be diagnosed with breast cancer.
  • Your support will purchase an Ultrasound Stretcher - a much-needed piece of equipment which allows a patient at the Breast Health Centre to sit comfortably for her chemotherapy treatments, often for three hours at a time. The medical team can rapidly adjust the chair to a reclined position to provide quick care, if needed.

Thank you, to the entire GasTOPS team for your continued support. Your generosity is making a direct impact on cancer care and research here in Ottawa!
