Vancouver’s lingerie virtuoso, Diane Thomson, kicked off breast cancer awareness month with a cocktail gathering to thank and celebrate the work of Metro Vancouver healthcare professionals. Hosted at her well-known South Granville lingerie shop, a crowd of doctors and nurses received heartfelt words of appreciation from B.C. Health Minister Dr. Margaret MacDiarmid and the Breast Cancer Foundation of BC/Yukon. In B.C., the five-year survival rate is 91.8 per cent, the best of all the provinces.

Diane’s Lingerie has been helping women find the perfect bra-fit for 29 years, and is also certified by the B.C. Ministry of Health as a PharmaCare store. Physicians refer patients to Diane’s for after-surgery care and prosthetic fittings.
