Welcome to My Fundraising Page!
The first year I arrived at the CIBC Run for the Cure was surreal. I was overwhelmed by the number of people who signed up for this event, the volunteers putting in their time to make it happen and all of the spectators cheering on the participants. I will never forget that feeling. Many years later I was personally affected by breast cancer, being diagnosed in 2016. I can't believe this was 5 years ago. It was one of the most scary moments of my life, hearing those words. Telling my friends and family was a daunting task. And yet at the same time, I have such positive memories of that time. I re-evaluated what was important in my life. I reconnected and allowed myself to be vulnerable. I focused on my goal and had my target in sight. And I was able to do this with the excellent care provided by my medical team. Cancer research and care is rapidly changing and it's why the breast cancer death rates in women have decreased approximately 49% since the 1990's. It's also why I have to correct people who say that with all the money raised, why is there not a cure and that clearly the funds raised to date have not helped. What is clear to me is that without this research, there is a strong possibility that I may not be here today. And so this year, I will run again and if you are so inclined, please feel free to donate to this worthy cause.
