Support My Journey

The Weekend to End Women's Cancers is a two-day, 60-kilometre walk through the neighbourhoods of Montreal. Proceeds benefit the Jewish General Hospital, funding important women's cancers research, education, services and care.

It's been six (6) years since I was first diagnosed and treated for breast cancer. As some of you know, I was again diagnosed with recurring breast cancer in 2010 at which time I had to undergo a mastectomy and reconstruction.  Last year I joined the BMO Pink Ladies Team and there I met a colleague, Christine Dagenais; we walked the whole 60 km together.  This year, I will again be walking the 60 km but not with Christine as she is currently undergoing chemo to treat the cancer that has crept into her body.

This walk is not only a personal challenge it is also an opportunity to raise funds for cancer research. Knowing first hand what it is like to go through chemo and radiation and to be diagnosed yet again with a recurrence, it is so important for cancer patients to have the support as well as the knowledge that progress is being made via research and that a cancer diagnosis is no longer a death sentence. With your help I will not only achieve my goals but help cancer research achieve theirs.

Christine, I think of you often but my thoughts will especially be with you on August 25th and 26th when I will again walk 60 km in your honour and towards a cure for cancer .  Bon courage!

Thank you for your generous donations.

Helen
