Donate to Help The Princess Margaret Cancer Centre Conquer Cancer in our Lifetime

Wachay Greetings

I joined the Shoppers Drug Weekend to End Women's Cancers which is a 2 day, 60 kilometer walk through Toronto in support of the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. I joined to support all women (and also men) who have faced cancer.

At Princess Margaret, over 160 researchers, 370 trainees and 460 technical support staff collaborate to gain a better understanding of cancer and to develop strategies to prevent, treat and cure cancer.

I would like to let you all know how I got involved in this walk. As of January 5th 2010 where I was in involved in a fatal accident where the passenger of the other vehicle was violently killed. Thereafter, I was diagnose with Past Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). As I could not get behind the wheel of any vehicle I began to walk to take some of the burden from my wife Marion as she drove me everywhere, sometimes at a drop of a hat. I started walking to keep my mind focus on other things. I would walk some day 10 - 15 km. I still am seeing numerous doctors for PTSD but there is good news, I started driving June 2012. I am still nervous with driving with other people. Now I do not depend so much on my family which have been extremely supportive throughout this whole ordeal.

A few months ago I notice a pamphlet at our local Shopper's Drug Mart, I pick it up and brought it home. I read it and discussed with my wife, she agreed it would be a great thing for me to do. I asked my son's fiance, Jaime MacKinnon, to join me in walking this weekend and she was excited to do so. I spoke with the owner Laurance (Larry) Ura of our Shopper's store # 0857 and express my interest in The Walk to End Cancer and he expressed his excitemnt for us to walk on the store's behalf. 

My whole household will be involved in fundraising leading up to this tremendous event. Every bit counts. Get involved with us and join this life-saving adventure against cancer. Please donate what you can, or join up to walk with us, or share my page with others.

Please, remember all the people whether they be young or old who have been touch with some sort of Cancer we are all walking for them.

In the spirit if hope

Chi-Miigwech,
