Welcome to My Fundraising Page!
Every day, 70 Canadians will hear the words "you have breast cancer."
In November 2018, a week before my 32nd birthday I heard those words. My world and my family's world came crashing down! The next month was filled with scans , additional biopsies and appointments. I cried everyday, most of the day, I was a mess. It was weeks before we knew what kind and what stage cancer I had. I was diagnosed with Stage 3A HER2+ breast cancer. It was clear it spread to my lymph nodes.
After chemo, surgery and radiation I've been deemed no evidence of disease. This is great news however, I will live with the fear of my cancer returning for the remainder of my life. In particular I fear it coming back as stage 4. The reality 1/3 women will have a reoccurrence as stage 4! The harder reality, many are diagnosed stage 4 from day one!
A very small percentage of breast cancer funding goes to metastatic breast cancer research. This has to change! Stage 4/MBC kills, there is no cure!
I'm honoured to walk/run in support of MBC research funding, I hope for a future that has a cure!
Please contribute what you can to help me achieve my fundraising goal. Every dollar makes a difference. Your donation will fund MBC ground-breaking research to help save the lives of more Canadians and provide support programs for people affected by breast cancer.
Did you know that just $100 could fund two 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!
