Just Breathe is a fund created by youth actress Kaitlyn Bernard, which supports Camp Goodtimes from the Canadian Cancer Society, B.C. & Yukon Division. We’ve been SO inspired by Kaitlyn’s story—a Grade 11 student, she was inspired to create Just Breathe after starting as a child with terminal cancer in the film ‘The Healer’ and donated almost all her earnings from the film to the cause.
The $50,000 will support the expansion of the Youth Council which facilitates positive peer-to-peer connections, enable the Year-Round Family Support Program to organize and fund additional events, and fund additional summer camp spots and travel assistance for kids and families.
Thank you to all the organizations who submitted applications for this community grant, and all our caring community members who voted. Congratulations to Kaitlyn and Just Breathe!

Winning the $50,000 SimpleGenerosity grant from Envision Financial, a division of First West Credit Union would benefit the Canadian Cancer Society’s Camp Goodtimes, the benefactor of the Just Breathe campaign. Just Breathe supports children living with cancer, enabling children to attend Camp Goodtimes located in Maple Ridge. In addition to providing specialized programming for teens and youth in the summer, Camp Goodtimes runs a Youth Council that engages youth who are cancer survivors or patients who are going through or have just completed their treatments, in meaningful activities throughout the year. Through the Youth Council, workshops and activities are identified and developed to provide tips and tools to help boost teens’ confidence and reduce their anxiety. The council’s activities rotate around three major themes: giving back to the community, learning essential life skills and having fun. Thank you for helping us celebrate Canada150 and strengthening our communities with SimpleGenerosity!
