Doing my part for the cure
Doing my part for the cure

In December 2010, I underwent surgery at the Jewish General hospital in Montreal. I had the fortune to meet some of the dedicated staff who work there giving professional and personal care. Not long after the surgery, I heard a commercial for the Pharmaprix Weekend to End Cancer benefiting the Segal Cancer Centre at the Jewish General hospital. I knew that participating in this event was something I needed to do even though it was going to be a challenge: walking 60 km and raising $2000 but a challenge I was up for.

In January 2011, at the age of 34, I was diagnosed with diffused large b cell lymphoma which is a type of non hodgkins lymphoma.  It was necessary to take 6 rounds of chemotherapy and take a leave of absence from work. The staff at the Segal Cancer Centre have been amazing and I see first hand how important this event is as there an overwhelming need for resources on a daily basis for research and patient care. Two thumbs up to the staff and the Youth and Young Adult Oncology division.

September 8th, 2011, was a day that I will soon not forget, the day I found out I was in remission. I am walking again this year in this amazing event so that others can hopefully hear those same words  but more importantly never be dignosed.

Although I may sometimes may be sarcastic and joke around, one thing is for certain this disease is no laughing matter therefore I hope that you will help the members of team ONE DAY AT A TIME and I with our endeavour and make a donation to this worthy cause. All donations are welcome regardless of the amount as each dollar will help with research and hopefully prevent someone and their loved ones from having to battle with cancer.

Let me know if you need more info.
