Support My Journey The Weekend to End Women's Cancers is a two-day, 60-kilometre walk through the neighbourhoods of Toronto. 2014 will be my ninth time participating in this great event. I believe that each one of us has been touched in some way by some form of cancer. The more that we can do together to find a cure the sooner we can bring an end to this terrible disease.

When I began this journey of being involved in the Weekend to End Women's Cancers, I did it because I wanted to do what I could to make sure that no more of my family and friends would be taken from me because of cancer.  I had no idea that two of my closest friends would be diagnosed with Breast Cancer in the years to follow. 

In the fall of 2011 this journey became even more personal for me.  In October of 2011, having gone in for my regular mammogram and ultrasound the doctors found something had changed!  They had found that I had a lump in one of my milk ducts.  Through the use of technology that did not exist when I became involved in the Weekend to End Women's Cancers, they were able to determine exactly where this lump was located.  In fact there were two.  In January 2012 I was booked for surgery to remove the milk ducts along with the cancer.  This new technology meant that they were able to focus on the specific area's affected.  The milk duct is one of the most common area's for breast cancer to develop for women.  This was then followed up with daily trips to PMH for radiation for just over three weeks. 

In September 2014, I will be walking in my ninth 60 km walk and it will be with great joy that I will be joining thousands of other survivors of this disease.  Join me in the fight to continue to support Cancer Research, so that one day no one has to go through the aggressive treatments which have become a way of life for alot of people.  

Recently I heard a quote which says "Making a living is what you get, but making a life is what you give". Let's all give just little to find a cure. All proceeds benefit Princess Margaret Hospital, funding important cancer research, education, services and care.
