Welcome to My Fundraising Page!
Whoever believes that you will be the next one!
It is estimated that about 1 in 8 Canadian women will develop breast cancer during their lifetime and 1 in 33 will die from it.
“95% of new cases occur in women aged 40 years or older. The median age of women at the time of breast cancer diagnosis is 62 years.”
Statistics abound but the reality is that we all need to take precautions to monitor and protect ourselves.
Earlier this summer my family doctor reached out to suggest that we have a long overdue routine phone checkup and get routine blood tests, mammogram, etc.
Well that set off a battery of alarming results which ultimately resulted in a breast cancer diagnosis. Shocking to me…no family history…no prior reason to be concerned!
We all have to be vigilant - had I been regularly performing self breast examination I might have detected it earlier. Had I had my mammogram on schedule it may have been detected earlier.
Nevertheless, I was lucky to have a doctor that gave me the required nudge.
Since then I have been on a fast track to beating it.
Following surgery I am in the midst of my chemo journey. I know I have a long road ahead but I also know that we have world leading care in Canada.
EVERYONE has to be vigilant - for yourself, your family and your friends.
CIBC and the CBCF have been pioneers in leading the way on awareness and education. I am proud to have been associated with this great initiative as past CIBC Executive Sponsor of the Run from 2005-2011.
