In memory of our beloved mother, sister, grandmother, and friend we're honouring her perseverance through cancer and the charity that has helped provide her treatment and services.
Retraita Taguicana was diagnosed with Stomach Cancer, then Lung Cancer and Brain Cancer. Even through all her treatments she continued to be a beacon of strength for her family and friends. She loved to be around people, attend events, see her friends and family, she would thrive off of their energy and it would be her secret in surviving ~5 years longer than doctors had expected. In these rough isolated times, we know that she'd want all of us to still stay connected and stay active!
We're fortunate to be in a country like Canada and our healthcare system however Canadian Cancer Society enables much more than just treatment and research but also helps the quality of life in patients which we've seen first hand has a positive effect on recovery.
Thank you for taking part in Relay at Home!
