Every step brings us closer to a cure

Team Maria Scimeca

Saturday, August 22, Gino and I are walking for my aunt, Maria Scimeca. She is an extraordinary woman and we are proud to walk in her honour. Ever since my brother was a child he would affectionately refer to our aunt as "The Queen". As it turns out he has been right all along. She is selfless and strong, beautiful and brave, humerous and humble, inspiring and intelligent. She has always taken everything in stride and has never complained, even after surgery, countless procedures, tests and treatments.

Her journey began 5 years ago and she continues to fight today. She has experienced setbacks along the way but she always continues to move forward. I am in awe of the strenght and courage my aunt demonstrates each day. She is a wonderful mother, wife, daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, niece and friend. She is always thinking of others and I would like to do this small thing for her. Any donation is greatly appreciated. Please donate to our journey and make this Weekend matter! 

The 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 I’m ready to do something bold and powerful in an effort to end women’s cancers once and for all.

My commitment is 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 or simply sharing my story with your circle of influence. Take a chance with me – we have the opportunity to change thousands of lives, beginning with our own. 

Christina & Gino
