Our Commitment

Over the years, NYGÅRD’s charitable platform, NYGÅRD for Life has encompassed a number of initiatives; while the program’s focus and commitment has and will continue to be to help eradicate breast cancer, we have expanded it to also include a mandate that enhances all aspects of the lives of women. Our sponsorships include our annual endowment fund to CancerCare Manitoba. This fund allows CancerCare Manitoba to bring in world class researchers to work at the NYGÅRD sponsored Breast Cancer Tumour bank. We have also sponsored a Mobile Mammography Unit that travels to remote areas to screen women who might normally not be able to travel to urban centres for mammograms. A part of our donation has members of the Symphony Orchestra playing for breast cancer patients while they receive treatment and has provided thousands of specially designed mammography gowns for patients to wear during screening. To shine a spotlight on the brave women, NYGÅRD includes breast cancer survivors as the stars in all of our Fashion Shows.

All monies raised through NYGÅRD for Life directly impacts Breast Cancer survivors and to further the much needed research to find a cure. As part of our effort to raise awareness, our fashion shows feature breast cancer survivors.
