Toronto (Dec. 12, 2005) - More than 5,000 thousand loved ones will be honoured at a special tribute ceremony Wednesday, Dec. 14 from 11:30-noon in the main atrium of Princess Margaret Hospital, 610 University Ave (Murray Street entrance).

At the ceremony, 5,000 paper doves dedicated by donors will be on display throughout the atrium and on The Wings of Hope Dove Wall, a special place of public recognition, acknowledgement and remembrance in the hospital.

On behalf of all dove donors, David Roberts, a donor whose wife Nancy passed away seven years ago after her own battle with cancer, will place a dove in her memory on the holiday tree in the atrium.

The Dove fundraising campaign, now in its fifth year, and The Wings of Hope Dove Wall have raised more than $1.5 million to support research, patient education and teaching at Canada's leading cancer centre.
