Pharmaprix(MD) Weekend to End Women's Cancers in Montreal

Butterfly of Hope


Donate to our journey and make this Weekend matter! 



Once Upon a Time we didn’t count time.


Kids playing in the park until days turned to dusk and dusk turned into nights.


Once upon a time we were indestructible teenagers.  Living for the moment, in the moment. Taking each day as it came, together forever, that's the kind of people we were.


As the years passed memories were formed, bonds are tied, each other's families become your families, each other's joys and sorrows become something you took on together. There was no other way.  Then somewhere along that timeline we became young adults.  The whole world at our fingertips, our whole life in front of us... so it seemed.


Losing your life to cancer isn't the way it was written out to be.  Spending your days in pain, spending your time in bed, looking at your life slip through your fingers while you fight for one more moment, for one more day, and one more chance, one little miracle.


Losing a Daughter, a Sister, a Wife, a Brother, Mother, Father or a Friend to cancer is no fairy tale. That once happily ever after isn't something you can take for granted anymore.


It hurts to watch them suffer, it hurts to watch them go and it hurts to miss them.  They were too young, to vibrant, to kind, to alive to die but they did and what now?


Together now we'll walk, turn our pain into hope and our grief into acts of love. Each step we take, we take in their honour, moving forward, together we'll stand. Making all those we’ve lost proud of us letting them know their battle did not go in vain.




Once upon a time lived a friend who was named Jennifer, Debbie, Bev,  Carolyn, Stephanie, Joan,  Candy, Pamela and far too many others who lived meaningful lives; that loved with all of their heart and laughed a laugh impossible to forget.


Once upon a time lived friends that believed they can make a difference by raising awareness, encouraging research and knowing that one day with perseverance we will find a cure. They believed that those still fighting the fight are worth the time, the effort and the money.


We SUPPORT them, We HONOR them and we REMEMBER them.   Today I’d like to add Gratitude in having people like yourself helping us reach our goals..

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 we’re ready to do something bold and powerful in effort to end women’s cancers once and for all.

2014 is our Tenth Anniversary of The Weekend! This year is the culmination of a decades worth of efforts by the Segal Cancer Centre at the Jewish General Hospital, doctors, researchers, and thousands of women across Montreal, who have been working toward a future free from the fear of women's cancers.  If you've ever considering supporting us, now is the time.


This is OUR journey. Make it a Weekend we’ll never forget.
