The Pharmaprix Weekend to End Women's Cancers is a two-day, 60-kilometre walk through the neighbourhoods of Montreal. It will be a challenge and I am ready to take on this endeavour to help find a cure for cancer that robs us all too soon of the people we love. 

I am participating in the Walk particularly in memory of my mother, Anne Kucharski, who died of endometrial cancer on May 10, 2008.  She was an amazing woman and we all miss her very much. No one can fill the hole she left behind.

 When I hear the word "cancer", I feel scared, helpless and I just don't know what to do.  This weekend is an opportunity for me to do something

The fundraising goal seems unreachable and the physical challenge appears impossible. Initially I felt that I will never be able to do it.  Why even try?  This left me feeling frustrated. Though not the same, I wonder if this is how newly diagnosed cancer patients  feel - everything seems unsurmountable.

 As a nurse I saw firsthand the terrible toll cancer takes on everyone's lives  including those struck with the disease and those in a supporting role. I remember how helpless I felt. Now that I am 80% retired I feel ready to take on a new challenge. I never thought it would be a 60km walk! But I am ready to succeed with your help!

My goal is to get together with family and friends, form a team and work together to FIGHT this disease.  Together we can make a difference. I am not dreaming that this will be easy but I am eager to try.  I am walking to honour all those whom we have lost, those who are currently battling and those who may one day have to fight cancer.

 My theme song says it all:

You got what it takes you can win
Today is your day to begin
Don't give up here, don't you quit
The moment is now, this is it
I know that you can, then you will
Get to the top of the hill
Part of the fun is the climb
You just gotta make up your mind
That today is your day
And nothing can stand in your way
