Bikers visiting Port Dover on Friday the 13th encouraged to stop by the Regional Cancer Program booth for cancer screening info and giveaways.

Grimsby resident Nancy McMillan is well known in Hamilton and beyond as chair of the BRIGHT Run, an annual fundraiser that has raised over $3 million for breast cancer research locally since the event started 10 years ago. Nancy and her husband Gord Bell also believes in cancer screening, and are encouraging fellow motorcycle enthusiasts to visit the Regional Cancer Program’s booth at this month’s Friday the 13th event in Port Dover for information about the Ontario Breast Screening Program, Ontario Cervical Screening Program, and ColonCancerCheck.

Those who can’t make it to Port Dover can visit for more information. Screening can find signs of cancer early, when it’s easier to treat.
