You may recall reading Jillian Buckingham’s story in our December 2014 CAPsule. When we last heard from Jillian, she was undergoing chemotherapy and getting ready for her wedding to fiancé Jeff. Today, Jillian’s treatments are behind her and she and Jeff are happily married, following a beautiful sea-side wedding in Cuba. Jillian wore Jeff’s favourite blond pixie wig, as provided by CAP, and looked absolutely stunning. Jillian is excited to no longer need this wig, however, as her own hair is growing back!
Great care, consideration and thought were invested in the development of our new Cancer Assistance Program (CAP) logo. Our goal was to obtain a logo that truly reflects the compassionate, caring, loving, warm and open nature of the Cancer Assistance Program.
The individual letters of CAP have been leveraged, as they are instantly recognizable. The previous logo has been respected, however a softer approach was taken. The capital letters were changed to lowercase, and the script used is more friendly and approachable, and less institutional. It is simplicity with elegance, professional without intimidation.
The ‘a’ in ‘cap’ has been isolated and the ‘Assistance’ highlighted, as assistance is the cornerstone of the Cancer Assistance Program.
The dominant colour of green has been maintained to respect the heritage and acknowledge the importance of the gardens. We have used a lighter green to symbolize new growth and new life. The lighter green is fresh, and speaks to our optimism.
The open stylized heart represents the kindness, caring and unconditional support that is synonymous with CAP. The heart hugs the Assistance Program, and is consistent with the approachable, welcoming nature and spirit of CAP staff and volunteers.
We are looking forward to having our new logo serve the Cancer Assistance Program for many years to come. It is a respectful representation of the many volunteers and the kind work and energy given freely every day.
We’re excited to have our new website live, with all its new functionality and convenience!
