All proceeds from local singer Melissa Dawn's new single, “My Will,” will be donated to Angels in Pink.

Angels in Pink has raised more than $350,000 to date for the Northern Cancer Foundation's Breast Equipment Fund.

It was founded in 2008 by breast cancer survivor Annette Cressy, who decided to raise funds to purchase a breast coil table for Sudbury, as she had to travel to Timmins to access the equipment.

In 2012, Dawn was approached by Angels in Pink for corporate sponsorship of its Pink Glove Party fundraiser.

“As I learned about the organization and their mission, I immediately felt a connection with founder Annette Cressy as she shared an all too familiar story,” said Dawn.

“While going through breast screening myself in 2011, I too experienced the dreaded drive to Timmins - from that day forward I have supported the Pink Glove Party."

Dawn said she had a lot of help in producing her new single.

She approached friend and local musician Kyle Maki to co-write the single. Once an acoustic version of the new single was completed, Melissa contacted local producer John Hartman of Icedrum Media.

Upon hearing the song, Hartman offered to donate his studio time to recording/producing the full band version of the “My Will” single.

The single is now available for purchase at the Northern Cancer Foundation office and Coldwell Banker Charles Marsh Real Estate.

People can also purchase it online by searching for “My Will - A Tribute to Cancer Survivors” on Facebook, and sending a private message.

Those attending this year's Pink Glove Party, which takes place April 24, will also get a chance to hear the single, as Dawn will perform it there. The CD will also be available for purchase at this event.
