Welcome to My Fundraising Page!
Every day, 70 Canadians will hear the words “you have breast cancer.” While these Canadians are living longer, healthier lives after a breast cancer diagnosis, but there is still so much work to be done.
By participating in this year’s Canadian Cancer Society CIBC Run for the Cure, I’m joining a collective that is a force-for-life in the face of breast cancer. I’m running in of the incredible people in my life, and I need your help!
This year I am leading the team, COUNT ME(ts) IN - a group of people living with Stage 4 Metastatic Breast Cander (MBC), and their families and friends in the Regina area. This is the fourth year they have come together to raise awareness of MBC and to raise funds to support MBC research. The funds raised by this team will be directed to the Canadian Cancer Society's Metastatic Futuers Fund. In 2018, CCS directed $3.8 million (or 33%) of its total breast cancer research investment towards research focused on metastatic breast cancer.
When I received my diagnosis December 2018, I was introduced to a FB support group. The ladies in this group surrounded me with their wisdom, their support, their caring. Many of these women were living with Stage 4 Metastatic Breast Cancer (MBC). They are/were living on borrowed time. Convential treatment options had failed them. They relied on clinic trials of new treatment options to prolong their life with their families, their friends. In spite of this, they continue to provide tremendous support to all those newly diagnosed - whatever the stage/severity.
One of the ladies that came along side me was Jordana Buchan. She was diagnosed at Stage 4 eight years ago. She became a huge support and advocate for the MBC community and was one of a group to start this team with the goal of raising money specifically targeted towards MBC research. She passed away July 12th of this year. To honour her, I took on the role of Team Captain of this team to keep this fundraising going. I can't think of a better way to thank Jordana, and all those living with MBC who continue to rally around the Breast Cancer community than to generate as much money as I can to go towards MBD treatment research.
Please contribute what you can - every dollar makes a difference.
Did you know that just $150 could fund three hours of life-saving research in a world class laboratory? Your contribution could lead to the next breakthrough!
Together, we can change the future of breast cancer.
Thanks in advance for your support!
