After months of receiving beautiful tributes, the 16th annual Doves of Hope Campaign culminated in a stunning display of hope that saw thousands of doves covering the atrium at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.

The Dove dedication ceremony, celebrating the tribute-themed campaign, drew crowds of people who wished to honour those who have been touched by cancer. Every Dove represents one person and their journey.

Mark Allison shared the story of his daughter Carley, who lost her battle with cancer at just 19 years old.

Mark recalls coming to the cancer centre with Carley for her radiation treatment and Carley's excitement when she found – among 10,000 other paper doves – one that had been dedicated to her.
