Please support My Journey

The Weekend to End Women's Cancers is a two-day, 60-kilometre or one-day 30 kilometre walk through the neighbourhoods of Montreal. Proceeds benefit the Segal Cancer Centre at the Jewish General Hospital with important cancer research, services and care that will not only benefit those suffering from breast cancer, but all women's cancers.

It's been a long time since I lost my aunt to cancer, but the ripple effect was huge. It inspired my uncle to help found the Dorothy Ley Hospice in Ontario. I know of too many people, and have been touched by others' stories of battles with cancer. Hardly anyone can say that they haven't been touched by someone who has faced a battle with cancer. 1 in 9 Canadian women is expected to develop breast cancer during her lifetime and 1 in 28 will die of it. And there are many other cancers that also affect women.

Sometimes, it's the little things in life that make a huge difference. Like when my daughter opened her piggy bank and donated $5 to the Weekend. Joanna just turned 10 and I hope & pray that she grows up and is never personally affected by one of the women's cancers. With every step, we get closer and closer to finding a cure.

I've participated in the Weekend twice now - the first year I was concerned with my knees and this past year I was recovering from a leg fracture and 3rd degree ankle sprain. But I figure that is nothing compared to cancer, so I will walk again so that Joanna, and countless of other women, don't have to suffer.

Cancer is hard, walking isn't.

Thank you so much for your continued support & encouragement.

Big hugs,
Wendy
