“Backyard Boogie”

is a FUNdraising organization launched in 2015 by the children of the late Veronica McKoy, also known as “Miss V”. Miss V, who was a pillar of strength to her family and within the greater Toronto community, lost her battle to uterine cancer in December 2014. Soon after, her children decided to make it their mission to increase awareness about Endometrial Cancer and raise funds to support women living in rural areas in the Caribbean and battling cancer.
