Location: C5 Restaurant & Lounge at the ROM
WXN is bringing some of the most extraordinary, engaging and dynamic young women to Toronto to share their stories. They have started movements and spearheaded humanitarian efforts; they are inventors and they have achieved the unthinkable. In short, they are changing the world. The first event in the series will see F— Cancer’s Yael Cohen come to Toronto to speak at the ROM’s C5 Lounge. Yael is the Founder, President, and CFO of F— Cancer, a non-profit organization dedicated to spreading the word about the importance of early detection. Yael founded F— Cancer in 2009 after her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. Determined to have strength for her mom, Yael decided to use the F word to fight the C word by creating a charitable organization that does things very differently. Since the launch of F— Cancer, Yael has grown into an influential player in the not- for-profit world. Yael has also earned the attention of some very influential groups for her work with F— Cancer. This past year, she spoke at TEDMED, and was named as one of 12 people who are transforming philanthropy by The Globe and Mail, among the likes of Bill Gates and Bono.
