Prostate Cancer Canada Partners with Screw Cancer™

Purchasing a Screw Cancer™ screwdriver supports education, research and patient support



TORONTO, ON - Starting today, you can screw cancer and give hope in your local community by
purchasing the Screw Cancer™ screwdriver in support of Prostate Cancer Canada. The Screw Cancer™
campaign is partnering with Prostate Cancer Canada, as well as the Sunnybrook Hospital Foundation
(Toronto, ON), the Juravinski Hospital and Cancer Centre Foundation (Hamilton, ON) , the Thunder Bay
Regional Health Sciences Foundation, the Northern Cancer Foundation (Sudbury, ON) and the Grand
River Hospital Foundation (Kitchener-Waterloo, ON) to raise funds for research into improved
diagnostics and treatments, as well as support services and resources at the community level. The
campaign is designed to give you, the donor, the power to choose which local support organization
your donation will support when you purchase a screwdriver to #screwcancer.
 


“We are all affected by cancer in some form,” says Grappleworks™ Founding Partner, Jeff MacIntyre.
“When you purchase the Screw Cancer™ screwdriver, you can be confident your funds are directly
impacting the local community where you live: your friends, family members, and sometimes, even
yourself.”

Screw Cancer™ is a cause-innovation campaign where great causes and a great peoplemeet to tackle
the toughest challenges communities face. Each participating organization will have a dedicated
partner page on the www.screwcancer.today website for donors to place their order directly in
support of their preferred organization.

The Screw Cancer™ campaign is the means by which every household in the community can
participate in bringing exceptional care to cancer patients in their community. The product is high
quality and expertly made. The Screw Cancer™ screwdriver adds value to Canadian households while
enabling the purchaser to make a difference in their community.

“Thanks to the Screw Cancer™ campaign we as an organization are going to be able to make
additional investments in key programs designed to support Canadian men with prostate cancer and
their families,” explained Randy Hutchings, Vice President of Marketing and Philanthropy for Prostate
Cancer Canada. “The product and the campaign are incredibly creative, and lend themselves well to
assisting our organization in our quest to continue to innovate and drive fundraising and donations in
non-traditional ways.”

The Screw Cancer™ campaign is committed to working with hospital foundations and other organizations
to maximize their fundraising efforts in order to make a difference to those needing cancer care. Support
