River East Home Lit Up in Fight Against Cancer

A Winnipeg Christmas light display is not only bringing joy to those who drive by it, but helping to raise funds for cancer research.

Michael Geiger-Wolf has lit up his home at 18 Mildred Street with 60,000 lights synchronized to music. The two-time cancer survivor turned his annual lighting tradition into a fundraiser the second time he found out he had cancer.

“I literally would not be alive today if it wasn’t for research and I’ve benefited from clinical trials funded in part by the Canadian Cancer Society both times I’ve gone through this,” Geiger-Wolf said.

“This is my small way of contributing to the cancer fight, giving back to the Cancer Society and providing hope to those facing a cancer diagnosis.”

The light display will be up until the second week of January and has raised nearly $18,000 for the Cancer Society in the past three years. This year’s goal is $10,000.
