Danny and Sandy Jadresko directed their Valentine's Day gift to the B.C. Cancer Foundation this year.

The Saanich couple gave $100,000 to establish cancer research fund in honour of Danny's mother, an 11-year survivor of non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.

“We were impressed and inspired by the level of dedication the researchers and the caregivers have,” said Sandy, in a press release.

"Our hope is that others will be inspired and want to make an investment in their community," added her husband, who describes the late Alex A. Campbell – a dedicated supporter of the B.C. Cancer Foundation – as a dear friend and mentor. “He inspired our interest in the leading-edge cancer research happening here on Vancouver Island."

The couple jointly run Woodsmere Holdings Corp. on Blenkinsop Road.
