The Future Cures Coalition: Local Grocers Breaking Down Cancer

September 8, 2021

We've partnered with the BC Cancer Foundation and other Independent Grocers on Vancouver Island to form The Future Cures Coalition. The goal of the coalition is to raise $500,000 for advanced life-saving diagnostic technology at the Vancouver Island Cancer Centre in Victoria.

The PSMA-Pet Scan is state of the art technology used to optimize the treatment for prostate cancer patients and will change outcomes for cancer patients. Funding PSMA-PET-Victoria will help move this breakthrough technology into a future standard of care for Vancouver Island and Gulf Island prostate patients. Currently, it is only available in Vancouver.

When you shop with us between September 8th and November 8th you can help us reach our goal by choosing the B.C. Cancer Foundation on our Spirit Board or shop with us on Toonie Tuesdays to donate a toonie as you check out at our tills. To learn more about PSMA-Pet and to donate online, visit
