In 2011, an active individual, and mother of 3 young boys, Zina Lombardi was diagnosed with muscle-invasive bladder cancer, and underwent 4 rounds of aggressive chemotherapy.
“Bladder cancer itself was not well known to me. I hadn’t even heard of it. Like most people, I’d heard of other cancers, lung, breast, prostate, so being diagnosed with bladder cancer felt very isolating. To find an organization like Bladder Cancer Canada where other people had gone through similar experiences and could provide additional information to help me make decisions was extremely comforting…”
Zina Lombardi’s story is one that we hear time and time again, and it is thanks to the generous support of donors like you that we can support patients and live beyond a bladder cancer diagnosis.
Your donation means Bladder Cancer Canada can continue to support bladder cancer patients and their families, help raise awareness for early detection, and fund innovative new research.
