12 Days of Kindness: This amazing cancer volunteer has never been recognized ... until now

On the first day of the 12 Days of Kindness Ashley Homestore thanks Bev Brisco for her unwavering commitment to the battle against breast cancer

Welcome to the 12 Days of Kindness supported by @homeENERGY. is back for a third season of surprises and we're kicking it off with a community hero.

With 72 new cases diagnosed each and every day, breast cancer is still the most common cancer among Canadian women. But real progress is being made with mortality rates steadily dropping as detection rates and treatment options have improved. 

While having a mammogram will never be a woman’s favourite things to do, there is a small army of women out there working to create awareness, promote screening and support research. 

One of the women leading the charge in our community is a tireless volunteer who makes great use of her time by giving it to others. 

Not only has Bev Brisco helped raise significant funds for the cause, she also put herself in the driver’s seat of the van that takes women to and from their breast screening appointments.

Thank you Paul McQueen from Ashley Homestore for recognizing Bev's unwavering commitment to the battle against breast cancer with a $7500 donation to the Northern Cancer Foundation in her honour.

Each weekday morning leading up to Christmas, will surprise a deserving person, family or organization but we can't do it without you. If you know someone who deserves an act of kindness - it is never too late to nominate them. Visit to find out how you can share a little love in our community.
