St. John's, NL -

St. John’s – Guests at Daffodil Place have a comfortable new place to relax and unwind thanks to a
generous donation from Husky Energy. The company is donating $75,000 to complete the construction
phase of the Husky Energy Healing Garden.

“The healing garden is much more than simply an aesthetically pleasing environment,” said Matthew
Piercey, Executive Director, Canadian Cancer Society, Newfoundland and Labrador Division. “This
garden will have a profound impact on the physical and mental wellness of everyone who enters. Our
goal is to provide an environment that energizes the body and promotes emotional, social, and
physiological health.”

“Today, we are here to recognize a milestone for both the Cancer Society and Husky Energy. Both
organizations are celebrating their 75th anniversary this year,” said Malcolm Maclean, Husky Energy’s
Senior Vice President, Atlantic Region. “Our employees are proud of our involvement with Daffodil Place
and are committed to supporting the people who use this excellent facility. On behalf of everyone at
Husky Energy, I am pleased to present this gift today and to officially open the Husky Energy Healing
Garden.”

Since opening its doors in 2009, over 2,465 guests from 305 communities across the province have
stayed at Daffodil Place while receiving cancer care. The facility was designed as a “home away from
home” for patients to help ease the stress and burden of undergoing treatment.

The Daffodil Place Healing Garden Campaign was launched in 2012 to construct a garden to further
enhance the quality of life for those guests who stay there. The campaign, chaired by Ron Ellsworth, has
received tremendous support from the business community, as well as individuals. The Canadian Cancer
Society is sincerely thankful for the support of the campaign, and is excited to introduce this new space
to Daffodil Place guests.

The Canadian Cancer Society is a national community-based organization of volunteers whose mission is the eradication of cancer and the enhancement of the quality of life of people living with cancer.
