If only I could hug you one more time.

This will be my fourth year walking for the Weekend - and I'm so, so proud to say that we've already raised over 51 000$ for the cause, and we plan on passing that goal this year!

The past few months have been hard for me. In the span of weeks, I lost two women to breast and cervical cancer. They weren't mere acquaintances - they were my role models. My heart was ripped out of my chest when I received the news that the kindest person I've known, my Aunt Shoshi, lost her battle in October. Then again, just when I thought it wasn't possible for me to experience any more pain, my dear mentor Vincenza lost her battle too. These women were some of the most incredible souls I've ever met, and their too-soon passing has left a permanent void in my heart.

It breaks me to realize that this year, I'll be walking in memory of not one, but two women who have always had unwavering support for me.

I am too young for this. These women were both suffering and did not deserve to endure any more - but they should not have been suffering in the first place.

I want to make sure nobody has to lose someone dear to them.

Doda Shoshi and Mrs. C., this year, I'm walking for you. I wish I didn't have to.

There are far too many women close to me who have battled cancer throughout their lives. I know that there's a cure somewhere that will one day improve the lives of all those who are suffering from this life-robbing disease. I want that day to be today - and I'm asking you to help me make that happen!

As I said, too many women I know have been forced to fight cancer - and I'm doing this for them. I'm doing this for my courageous Aunt Susie, for my strong Grandma Saidie, for my revered teacher Mrs. C., for all women. And for those who are currently in the battles of their lives, I'm praying so that, G-d willing, they'll rise up, and recover.

Pharmaprix Weekend to End Women's Cancers is a two-day, 60-kilometre walk through the neighbourhoods of Montreal. It will be a challenge and I am ready to take on this endeavour to find a cure to breast and gynecologic cancers!

My commitment is based on love and my 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 save lives.

I ask you to join my Circle For Hope. 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.

This is my journey. 
This is my Weekend Circle For Hope.
