My Journey...

In September of 2021 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. This was the most terrifying day of my life. I worried for my son who was just a year and a half, and how this diagnosis would affect his life. I worried that I wouldn't be able to be there for him as a mom should be while going through treatment. I worried for my husband and the impact this would have on our lives together moving forward. To say this experience has been traumatic would be an understatement. The scars on my body run deeper than the surface, the emotional toll has been overwhelming at times, but I have learned that I am stronger than I thought I could ever be. Thanks to the support of family, friends and co-workers I have had an army behind me the entire way. The programs and support offered to me through this journey have been unbelievably helpful and I want to help support these organizations in any way that I can, which is why I am fundraising for the Canadian Cancer Society.

 

For The Cause...

We have come together as a team to support the estimated 27,700 women and 260 men diagnosed with breast cancer every year in Canada. 
 
We are participating and fundraising for this year’s Canadian Cancer Society CIBC Run for the Cure on Sunday, October 2, 2022, because we believe better treatment options and survival outcomes are possible. And we want to support all Canadians impacted by breast cancer, including our family and friends. 
 
With your help, we can reach our fundraising goal and fund groundbreaking breast cancer research and support programs and services for those impacted by this disease. Together, we can create a future without breast cancer.  
 
Please donate today. Help us give Canadians impacted by breast cancer a reason to have hope.  
 
Thank you! We appreciate your generous support. 
 
P.S. Did you know? A $75 donation can fund a clinical trial for someone with breast cancer to test new treatments to save lives and give hope to countless others.
