Support My Journey

The Weekend to End Breast Cancer is a two-day, 60-kilometre walk through the neighbourhoods of Toronto. Proceeds benefit The Campbell Family Institute at The Princess Margaret, funding important breast cancer research, education, services and care.

I am participating in my 9th walk in 2012.  I have never had the pleasure to walk 60km with all of the amazing walkers but I have been a volunteer or crew member since 2004.  I have shared the pleasure and the pain but not the blisters. 

I started this journey in 2004 because I saw an ad for the walk and thought, wow I have a daughter and 2 sisters this is something that could affect them at any time or any place.  My mom had been a pallative care nurse for many years and I had heard stories of families that lost a mother, daughter or a sister and even a husband, son or brother to this disease.  The disease doesn't discriminate. 

I had been fortunate enought to not be directly affected, through family or friends.  I thought joining this cause would be the right thing to do.  Little did I know how life changing this would be for me.  I have met survivors, family members, even walkers that were in the middle of chemo treatments. Some have broken my heart and others have been my inspiration. 

This year I have my own personal inspiration as my mother is now a breast cancer survivor at 72.  When this walk started 10 years ago things might have been different.  At the ripe ole age of 46 I am getting married for the first time and it would have been devastating to not have her there.  We might not have the same point of view on all things, but I love my mother dearly.   I am proud to say that my work and the work of the weekend in general might be one of the reasons I will have my mother by my side on July 28th. 

I simply want to say thank you!!!! Thank you to everyone who chooses to donate, to the walker, crew, volunteers and staff, for all of the amazing work you do.  I am so proud to be a 10!!!!

You should be able to find me at the Re-Registration tent, so please come by and say Hi.  If I see you I will make sure that you are greeted with a smile (even at 5:30 AM).  Love and luck to all!
