Goal: $2,013.00
Achieved: $2,204.00

When I learned that my mother had breast cancer, I cried in silence.

When I learned that my sister had non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma, I cried in silence.

I was silent because I did not want to reveal that I had fears. Silent because I did not want it be known that there was much about cancer that I did not understand. Silent because I must not show any weakness as my mother and Wanda faced the battle for their lives.

Though I still have fears and still have much to learn about cancer, I am no longer silent in the face of cancer. I have been strengthened by the grace and courage shown by my mother and Wanda. I have been strengthened by friends who battled the disease (some more than once) and lived to fight another day. I have been strengthened by the dedication and perseverance of my Ruth's Army family.

Please support me and my Ruth's Army teammates as we march to raise funds for support cancer research at the Segal Cancer Centre. I will shut up when cancer is beaten...I promise. :-)


Thank you,


P.S. Selmay, we will walk for you so that you can walk with us next year. Stay strong and we love you.
