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

This year for the first time I will be participating in a very special event called The Weekend to End Women's Cancers.

The Weekend to End Women's Cancer is a two-day, 60-kilometre walk through the neighbourhoods of Montreal (Québec, Canada). It will be a challenge and I am ready to take on this endeavor to find a cure to breast and gynecologic cancers!

According to the National Cancer Institute of Canada, approximately 20,500 Canadian women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year, and about 5,400 will die from the disease. Additionally, over 8,000 Canadian women will be diagnosed with ovarian, cervical, or uterine cancer this year, and nearly 3,000 will die from one of these diseases.

I can't think of anyone of us who hasn't been touched by this disease in one way or another. Be it a close family member or friend, a work colleague or acquaintance. We all know someone who has either won or lost their battle with cancer.

There are far too many people close to me who have battled cancer throughout their lives. Walking 60 kilometers is nothing compared to facing chemo, radiation and the emotional roller coaster that comes along with cancer. Both my parents fought the battle against cancer. My father overcame colon cancer 12 years ago and my mother underwent treatments for breast cancer just last year.

I am doing this walk with one of dearest friends who is also a breast cancer survivor. Our team, The Pink Panthers, is walking to try to put an end to the fear, pain, and sadness caused by this awful disease. We are walking for a cure and more importantly, walking to raise awareness. Most women?s cancers are curable if they are caught in the early stages. Women need to be aware of the warning signs and educate themselves and the ones they love.

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 Segal Cancer Centre at the Jewish General Hospital, 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 or simply by sharing my story with your circle of influence.

Thank you in advance for your help and generosity!
