In loving memory of Janis Foligno, an exceptional leader who offered support and strength to members of the Greater Sudbury community and beyond.
Dedicating her time and offering compassion to those around her, Janis’ love for her family, friends and community is a profound legacy that will continue to support local charities and research projects committed to finding a cure for cancer and those who provide care and treatment to those battling the disease.
