About Titz'n Glitz
Titz'n Glitz raises funds to provide short term financial assistance to men and women with breast cancer who are in financial need.
Often, some of the most stressful realities of a cancer diagnosis are of a financial nature. Income is lost as patients are often unable to work while undergoing treatment. Patients have drug and treatment costs to meet, as well as other incidental costs. For example, women were missing chemotherapy treatments because they couldn't afford a babysitter. Unlike many breast cancer fundraisers, Titz’n Glitz does not fund research.
Titz'n Glitz was started in Halifax, Nova Scotia in 1995 by founder Margo Kerr. Since its inception, permission to host a Titz'n Glitz event has been granted to Fredericton, New Brunswick; Banff Alberta, Whitehorse in The Yukon and Collingwood, Ontario. Each had financial success with their events.
We are proud to state that Titz'n Glitz has raised over $1 million nationally since its inception to help breast cancer survivors in need.
