Robert Conconi donates million dollar home on Pender Island to BC Cancer Foundation auction

Madrona Grove

When Robert Conconi was diagnosed with throat cancer, the news immediately transported him back 30 years – visions of his father’s cancer experience filled his mind. Having learned he had the same type of cancer, Robert recalled his father’s grueling treatments; in the end, his father passed away just over one year after his diagnosis.

What Robert realized as he embarked on his own cancer journey at the BC Cancer Agency, is that his memories of cancer treatments from yesteryear are night and day from the reality of cancer treatments today.

Today, Robert is cancer free. Thankful for the care he received and blown away by the innovative research taking place at the BC Cancer Agency, Robert and his wife Diane, donated Madrona Grove to the BC Cancer Foundation.

The home has been consigned with The Garage Sale Luxury Auction House and on August 22, 2014, Madrona Grove will be sold via unreserved auction with 100% of all net proceeds being provided directly to the BC Cancer Foundation to fund cancer research.
