August 25-26, 2012 will be my second time completing this amazing walk. I will be walking for one day to support this great cause!

 

The Walk

The Pharmaprix Weekend to End Women's Cancers is a two-day, 60-kilometre or one-day 32-kilometre walk through the neighbourhoods of Montreal.

In completing this walk I hope to honour my mother's memory, to give back to an institution that did its best to save my mother's life and to push towards a cure for this ugly disease.

My Story

In December 2008, my mother was diagnosed with cancer. She fought a short but difficult battle that ended a year later in December 2009. She had just celebrated her 53rd birthday.

During her illness, my mother was kept at the Jewish General Hospital several times. The doctors did their best to take care of her and the palliative care department ensured that she was comfortable until the very last day.

It has been a over 2 years now since the heartbreaking ordeal and her death. I can still say that not a day goes where I don't think about her.

I feel that those who had the chance to meet my mom are a lucky group of people. Those who missed out on that amazing opportunity will always have a little part of her inside, as she left behind many, many recipes, much loved friends, family and colleagues, as well as plenty of students who are that much more fortunate to have been graced with her presence in the classrooms where she taught.
