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 cancer!

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.

As many of you already know, we as a family have suffered the challenges that Cancer can bring.  Currently my 24 year old daughter, Ashley, is undergoing chemotherapy treatments for Grade III, Stage 2A Invasive Ductal Carcinoma (Breast Cancer).  She has conquered surgery, chemotherapy and 20 radiation treatments and will be taking a drug called Tomoxifen for 5 years in order to block estrogen tumors.  Unfortunately, we recently have learned that Ashley carries the gene mutation BRCA+1 which puts her at a higher risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer in the future.  At this time Ashley is investigating her treatment options. 

It is for her, my friend Marcia and all women like them that I have chosen to participate in the 2012 Weekend to End Women's Cancer.  I will proudly walk with them in my heart and in their honor.

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