Known as The Social Sweetheart, Linda Ockwell-Jenner is a three-time cancer survivor, TV host, author, professional speaker, award winning entrepreneur and co-founder of the Small Business Community Network (SBCN). She is the keynote speaker at the Northern Cancer Foundation’s Luncheon of Hope Sept. 28.
She will bring a message of hope, and focus on her own experiences with breast cancer and overcoming life’s challenges.
This year’s event will raise funds towards the purchase of the Incucyte S3 Live Cell Analysis system. With IncuCyte S3 live-cell analysis, cells are measured continuously so new insights into biological processes and changes can be done via real-time. With greater understanding of cell activity researchers can run multiple tests and devise new experiments that will lead to better insight and treatment for breast cancer.
To date, the Luncheon of Hope has raised more than $845,000. With these funds, important breast-cancer research equipment has been purchased such as the histochemistry embedder.
The 20th annual Luncheon of Hope will take place at the Caruso Club. Tickets can be purchased for $60 each (includes a $30 charitable receipt) or corporate tables of 10 are available for $600 (includes a $300 charitable receipt).
