Humbertown Jewellers cherishes their relationships with their clients, as well as the surrounding community.

Giving back is core to their beliefs and they are proud to have partnered with the Fight to End Cancer team.
(article continues below photo)Ferit Tecimer, Owner and President of Humbertown Jewellers, is well aware of the innovative and ground-breaking work the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation continues to provide for all those directly affected by cancer. His daughter is a family physician in the community and sees directly how important Princess Margaret’s services are for her patients. His son in law is a research fellow at Princess Margaret in physics, which has allowed Ferit to gain a greater appreciation and understanding of Princess Margaret’s important role in new discoveries through its cutting edge research programs.
It wasn’t until he met with Jim Mosher though, owner of Landscape Plus Ltd. (FTEC’s presenting partner), that he was introduced to the Fight to End Cancer. Ferit never thought he would be involved in anything related to boxing, but after Jim’s enthusiasm and his known commitment to doing everything “just right”, he decided to meet with Jennifer Huggins, founder of the Fight to End Cancer. Ferit was inspired by her vision, her goals and her commitment to giving back to the community. He knew right away that he would do whatever he could to help Jennifer “knock out cancer”.

Our goal is to raise funds for cancer research year-round with the support of the local community and business owners. Let’s make a difference now in the fight to end cancer, for a long and successful future for everyone.
