Every Step Brings Us Closer to a Cure
Every Step Brings Us Closer to a Cure

Friends and Family,

On August 23-24, 2014, I'll be participating in a very special event called Pharmaprix(MD) Weekend to End Women's Cancers(TM) benefiting the Segal Cancer Centre at the Jewish General Hospital.

I'll walk approximately 32 kilometres in one day with thousands of other women and men. The proceeds will support breast and gynecologic cancers research, treatment, and services.

According to the National Cancer Institute of Canada, approximately 20,500 Canadian women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year, and about 5,400 will die from the disease. Additionally, over 8,000 Canadian women will be diagnosed with ovarian, cervical, or uterine cancer this year, and nearly 3,000 will die from one of these diseases.

This walk is a very personal one for me as I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2011. Though I had an aggressive type of tumour, I was very lucky that my treatment plan included therapy with Herceptin, a monoclonal antibody that targets my specific type of tumour. Years ago, Herceptin did not exist. Thanks to ongoing research into breast cancer treatment, new targeted therapies are actively being developed .This  research needs to be fueled by funds, that’s why  I'm walking this year for the first time. Though I am shy about asking for donations, I hope that you'll share in my commitment by supporting me in my fundraising efforts.

I've commited to raise as much money as possible. Please help me by making a donation, however much you can. Use the link at the bottom of this email to visit my site and make an online donation to support me. 

Thank you in advance for your generosity!

Sincerely,

 

Bluma
