New Centre for Head & Neck Disease at Mount Sinai Hospital

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 14, 2008) - Make a difference in the lives of those touched by Thyroid Cancer by attending the 3rd Annual DaVinci Gala. The exciting event will be taking place on May 21, 2008, in support of the Joseph and Mildred Sonshine Family Centre for Head and Neck Disease at The Mount Sinai Hospital - a state-of-the-art facility for the diagnosis and treatment of thyroid cancer under the direct supervision of Dr. Paul Walfish and Dr. Jeremy Freeman.

With a frequency ratio of 3:1 in females to males, thyroid cancer is the most-common endocrine gland malignancy. In the last two decades, it has become more prevalent than any other malignancy. With modern detection techniques and treatments, thyroid cancer can be cured in more than 85 per cent of affected patients.

Mount Sinai Hospital has been recognized for its leadership role in the medical and surgical treatment of thyroid cancer. To maintain its position as such, both within this community and worldwide, the DaVinci Gala was born in 2006 to offset some of the costs associated with The Centre for Head and Neck Diseases.

Since its inception, the Gala - presented by the Gala Committee - has flourished thanks to the combined efforts of volunteers, assistants, research students and the patients of Dr. Walfish at Mount Sinai. Today, the Committee has grown, as has the event and the fundraising efforts. With your support, The Gala will help to ensure that The Centre will remain at the forefront of knowledge, detection and treatment of thyroid cancer.

The 3rd Annual DaVinci Gala will be held at the La Primavera Hospitality and Convention Centre, at 77 Woodstream Blvd. in Woodbridge, with honourees Michele and Garry Zentil. Cocktails will be served at 6 p.m., followed by dinner at 7 p.m., and entertainment courtesy of Brian Roman and Peter Daminoff. Dress in business attire, and prepare for what promises to be an eventful evening.
