Welcome to the Crystal Gala Foundation. We’re here to talk about and fight breast cancer.

Every Fraser Valley wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, and colleague has been affected by the disease, directly or indirectly, and probably more than once.

The Crystal Gala Foundation is based in Abbotsford, BC, but serves the people of the Fraser Valley, from Surrey and Langley to Abbotsford, Chilliwack, and Hope to Harrison Hot Springs, Agassiz, Mission, and Maple Ridge. The Foundation, made up of a group of dynamic women from all walks of life, meets monthly around a kitchen table, and has one goal in mind: raising money to help promote and achieve breast health and support the women and families who suffer the effects of breast cancer.

To date, the Crystal Gala Foundation has raised more than $1.25M, thanks to our generous sponsors, donors, and supporters.

Would you like to donate now?

Of that money, $1M has been committed (and $625,000 has been delivered) to the Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Cancer Centre (ARHCC), resulting in the naming of the Crystal Gala Breast Health Unit and ensuring delivery of two state-of-the-art digital mammography machines, one within the Crystal Gala Breast Health Unit (for breast screening) and one for more in-depth diagnostic testing in the medical imaging department.

Here is a video to help you better understand us. It won’t take more than five minutes of your time.

Additionally, the money you’ve helped us raise will support a brand-new patient navigation program designed to help alleviate the stress and anxiety of wait times by guiding patients through all their testing within a 21-day time frame. Wow!

You’ve helped us raise a lot of money and we take it very seriously. That’s why we are firm about keeping administration fees at bay and gathering as much volunteer support as possible. We promise to continue to be good stewards of your generosity. If you would like to donate cash or goods in-kind we appreciate all contributions.
