Hello Friends,

2014 will be my 12th WEWC walk in 9 years and I'm excited to once again join the Butterfly of Hope team for my first ever walk in Montreal, along with my #1 Supporter, John.

This years walk is dedicated to two very special women in my life. Both were diagnosed with Cancer at the same time.

I met Terry Fraser on my first WEWC walk in Edmonton in 2006. We were both walking alone, met at the 2nd pit stop, ended up finishing the weekend walk together and remain good friends today. Terry was walking for many, but was inspired by her best friend, Cathy, a survivor (and awesome supporter); and her Mom who put up a heck of a battle for many years but cancer took her from her loved ones. Terry was diagnosed this year and has just received news that the surgery was a success and with some follow up treatments, she will be here to spread her inspiration and hope; and fulfill her passion to teach yoga for many more years. I am SO thrilled to hear of her news.  Terry, I dedicate this walk to you and look forward to celebrating with you.

The other person I dedicate this walk to is my very close friend, Charlene Neilson, who some people know as Charlie.  Charlene has been in my life since I was 16 years old and has been as close to me as a sister. She's one of the happiest, kindest, most generous people I have ever known and our time together was always special and fun. Cancer recently claimed Charlene's life, after a very short and very intense battle and it's left many, many broken hearts - including my own. This world is at a loss without her. Although I can no longer celebrate with Charlie, I will always celebrate her life with us.

Please help me to stop this. Anything you can donate to help end this monster called cancer is greatly appreciated.

This isn’t just my journey – it’s yours, too.
Make it a Weekend you’ll never forget. 

Lots of Love and Hope,

Penny xo
