Donate to my journey and make this Weekend matter! 

Pharmaprix(MD) Weekend to End Women's Cancers? is a 2-day, 60-kilometre or 1-day 32-kilometre walk through the neighbourhoods of Montreal. It?s going to be a challenge, but I?m ready to do something bold and powerful in effort to end women?s cancers once and for all.



You see, last summer, I had lost my mother to adenocarcinoma, which is a cancer of an unknown origin.  It could have been breast or ovarian cancer, we don't know. She died 2 weeks after being diagnosed.  It was heart wrenching to watch her wither away.  She had a very sudden & brief struggle, but it was very painful to watch her suffer through it.  Almost 20 years ago, my mother also lost her own sister to breast cancer.  However, looking at the bright side, I have many family members & friends that had conquered breast cancer & for them & for all the thousands more, I'm doing this walk.  My commitment is based on love for my fellow sisters, mothers, grandmas, daughters, nieces, and friends everywhere. It?s based on the realization that we each need to do our part in this fight. I can walk. I can raise funds, I can and choose to be a part of this movement to take down women?s cancers!

I ask you to take a stance with me and join this life-saving adventure for all women. 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. Don?t stand back and think about what you could have done ? take that first step today! Take a chance with me ? we have the opportunity to change thousands of lives, beginning with our own.

This isn?t just my journey ? it?s yours, too.
Make it a Weekend you?ll never forget.
