Welcome to My Fundraising Page!
Every day, 70 Canadians will hear the words “you have breast cancer.” I am one of them.
On March 14, 2020, I found a large lump in my right breast. On March 30th, I was told that I had an aggressive, less common form of breast cancer and I had to start chemotherapy right away in order to try to save my life.
Despite delays for treatment in my hometown due to COVID, I had a wonderful surgeon and oncologist in Sudbury at the Cancer Treatment Centre that quickly started me on an accelerated IV chemotherapy schedule for the next 4 months. Once that was completed, I waited 3 weeks then underwent a bilateral mastectomy and had 15 lymph nodes removed. 6 weeks after the surgery, I endured 15 radiation treatments. Once that was completed, I began another few months of chemotherapy. I officially had my last treatment on April 9, 2021.
Today I am doing well. I will be watched closely in case of recurrence, but I choose to believe that I have beat it. I wake up every morning thankful that I am still alive and surrounded by so many wonderful friends, family, and especially Mike and my boys.
The care and compassion that I received from Dr. Brûle and Dr. Pitre at the Northeastern Cancer Centre was phenomenal. They work so hard to save lives every day and genuinely care about their patients. What they need most are better treatments and a cure for this devastating disease.
I will be participating in this year's Canadian Cancer Society CIBC Run for the cure. I participated last year just before I began radiation, and I thank all of my friends and family for their generous support. This year, I am asking for your support again - not just for me, but for all of the people that have gone through or will go through what I have experienced. We need your help to fund breast cancer research. Please give what you can - every little bit helps!
Lots of love,
