Donate to my journey and make this Weekend matter! 

Pharmaprix(MD) Weekend to End Women's Cancers™ is a 2-day 60-kilometre walk 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.

The last six months have been a journey for my family and I but mostly my mother. In November 2012 my mother was diagnosed with advanced stage ovarian cancer. What initially was a shock to our family quickly became a challenge of a lifetime. My mother used every ounce of her to fight this battle and I was very lucky to be able to be alongside her for the journey. After 20 rounds of chemo and a radical hysterectomy, she is free and clear of a cancer that haunted us for the last few months. While her journey is nowhere near over as her life has forever been changed I am ever thankful to the Jewish General Hospital for the wonderful care from the nurses to doctors and everyone in between. The 7th and 8th floor quickly became a sanctuary for my mom.

My commitment is based on love for my mother but also 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 to benefit the Segal Cancer Centre at the Jewish General Hospital – a leader in the fight against all women's cancers. 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.
