Putting their money where the microscope is

It’s a positive trend – people wanting to address the root causes of disease by directly donating to research.

On January 20, 2015, Colorworks Express Autobody Centers, including its operating managers from Ontario and Alberta, donated $7,500 to the Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathobiology.

100% of their donation will go towards Professor Michael Ohh who researches the common causes of cancer, including prostate, breast, colon, pancreatic and kidney cancer. Ohh believes that one of these causes is the role of hypoxia, or oxygen deprivation, in the development of cancer. By understanding the foundation of almost all cancers, he hopes to one day find better treatments and ultimately a cure.
