As a lot of you know, I first became involved with the Canadian Cancer Society when I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma in 2017. I was able to experience first hand the impact that the organization and everyone who participates in a Relay has on patients just like me. Whether it's funding research to develop better treatments or organizing transportation to appointments, every dollar that's fundraised at a Relay For Life event is changing lives for the better.
Since my first diagnosis, I've been lucky enough to participate in my first Relay as a surivivor at Queen's, help organize the event, and now get to work with amazing people and students at the CCS as well. I'm also currently in treatment for my second cancer diagnosis, and through multiple chemotherapies and procedures have seen how COVID-19 continues to isolate and strain patients, families, and the amazing front line health care workers that are helping us every day.
That's why I am so excited to participate and fundraise for this year's Relay at Home, because this amazing event is more important than ever! Whether it's donating a few dollars, participating yourself, or showing support, any support is really appreciated and will make an immense impact on millions of people nation-wide.
Thanks so much!
