Physician Skincare Centre and Pender Medi Spa are proud supporters of Project HANDS – a Canadian, non-profit organization currently working among the indigenous Maya in rural regions of Guatemala. The goal of Project HANDS is to improve the quality of rural Mayan life by providing healthcare, education, and family support to those living in impoverished conditions.
Because the Maya have little access to medical care, Project HANDS sends medical teams to run outreach clinics, and surgical teams to perform elective surgery in such areas as gynecology, general, and reconstructive surgery.
In addition to medical projects, Project HANDS has also started an education sponsorship program to assist Mayan girls and women who wish to continue their education. They also provide support to families in need by providing housing materials and food as necessary.
We encourage you to learn more about Project HANDS and incredible work they do by visiting their website at www.projecthands.org.

Daffodil Ball – Canadian Cancer Society
The Canadian Cancer Society is a national, community-based organization of volunteers whose mission is the eradication of cancer and the enhancement of the quality of life of people living with cancer.
The Daffodil Ball is one of the Canadian Cancer Society’s signature fundraising events. This stunning black-tie dinner, dance and auction has become a leading date in Vancouver’s social diaries and always sells out fast.
As one of Vancouver’s most high-profile events, the Daffodil Ball attracts over 500 guests – affluent business and community leaders, primarily within the 35 to 60 age range.
