Dear Family and Friends

For the 7th year, I will join thousands of courageous women and men by walking the streets this August to raise awareness in the Weekend to End Women's Cancers, a 2-day 60km walk throughout the city of Montreal. 

As most of you already know this event has been very near to my heart since my Mother, Tobie Milstein, was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2001. She fought hard, brave and courageously won the battle for 6 cancer free years. Throughout those 6 years she never missed a year volunteering her time to this event and others. Her determination made me want to be a proud walker.

In October of 2007 we were told the cancer had returned; only this time to her liver. For that last year and a half my Mother fought as hard as she could again, never wavering in strength and never giving up hope; she had the same positive attitude, same brave spirit, same beautiful smile. Sadly, on February 26th 2009 my Mother passed away. 

Throughout my Mother's battle with cancer, she was a regular patient at the Segal Cancer Center in the Jewish General Hospital. Having been beside her while she received her various treatments, I was able to see how important this center is. The center provides patients who are undergoing treatments an environment that is full of warmth and hope, as well as all the support and literary materials families need to help their loved ones fight their battles. 

Thanks to our donations - wonderful volunteers, knowledgeable staff, doctors, specialists, free services and advanced machinery will continue to thrive. Your dollars will benefit the Jewish General Hospital, funding crucial cancer research, providing further education, services and care. 

This April I became a Mother for the first time to my daughter Raena Tobie and I am learning what it is like to never want to leave your child because of some unfortunate disease. I want to be part of the cure so no woman will ever have to lose the battle again. For all the women in your life, your Mom, your sisters, your daughthers, your girlfriends and even yourself, I am reaching out for financial support to help me reach my goal. Hopefully we can beat this disease once and for all. Be part of the amazing advancements that this walk has made possible.
