Be a Part of My Journey, Join My Circle For Hope!

Shoppers Drug Mart®  Weekend to End Women's Cancers? is a two-day, 60-kilometre or one-day 32-kilometre walk through the neighbourhoods of Calgary. It will be a challenge and I am ready to take on this endeavour to find a cure to breast and gynecologic cancers!

My commitment is based on love and my realization that we each need to do our part in this fight. I can walk. I can raise funds to benefit the Alberta Cancer Foundation, a leader in the fight against all women's cancers. I can and choose to be a part of this movement to save lives.

I ask you to join my Circle For Hope. Be a part of my very personal journey - by giving, by walking with me, or simply by sharing my story with your circle of influence.

This is my journey.
This is my Weekend Circle For Hope.

While cancer is certainly prevalent in my family it is also striking beyond the familial blood lines and striking friends.  Let's start with the familial statistics - on my mother's side, 3 of 5 children have already passed away of cancer.  On my father's side - over half of the nine children have passed away of cancer.

Now let's turn to 2011:

Early in 2011 we lost Mom (Marlene) to cancer - it was first detected as a tumour in her back and spread from there to other organs and finally her brain.  She was strong and a fighter!  She was looking out for everyone around her and this did not change when she got sick and weaker and assisted others by participating in research and in a study on new treatments/medication.  She continues to influence others in life after her death.

Summer 2011...a dear friend was diagnosd with stage 3 breast cancer, my mother-in-law was diagnosed with stage 1 breast cancer and a neighbour's cancer has recurred.  Our friend has undergone one surgery, completed her chemo treatments and radiation and now appears on the road to recovery and rebuilding...thankfully!  My mother-in-law's surgery appears to have been a success and we await future positive test results for her...thankfully!

The toll that cancer has taken in not just mine but everyone's lives is tremendous and we can only pray that ALL of our efforts together will bring a cure that our children and future generations don't have to go through the pain, the heartbreak and the suffering that we have watched and gone through.

Thank you for your support and listening to my story!!
