Every Step Brings Us Closer to a Cure
Every Step Brings Us Closer to a Cure

A journey can take you many places; from one country, province or city to another. My traveling and moving has finally come to an end by settling back at the beginning of my journey, with my family in Gatineau, Quebec.

My journey ends while my mom's begins. She was recently diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer, only two years after her retirement as a Registered Nurse. There is no way to express the injustice, anger and upset of this diagnosis, but as we move through this together, we find hope, strength in family and friends, and love. We discover that we are not alone but part of something larger.

My sister Sue and I have decided to make a difference and will support my mom by participating in the Pharmaprix(MD) Weekend to End Women's Cancers(TM).

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

Pharmaprix(MD) Weekend to End Women's Cancers(TM) is a two-day, 60-kilometre or one-day 32-kilometre walk through the neighbourhoods of Montreal. It will be a challenge and I am ready to take on this endeavour to find a cure to breast and gynecologic cancers!

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, by walking with me, or simply by sharing my story with your circle of influence.

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