Support My Journey

This is a current picture of my son Ethan & I. He's 14 now, the same age that I was when I lost my mother to ovarian cancer.  My mom was 49, I'm 54 now.  I know that I will have better chances of living longer, thanks to the progress in medical research.  My mom, and her mom both died of ovarian cancer in their 40's!

A few years ago, I got diagnosed as a BRCA1 carrier, which means that I have the breast & ovarian cancer gene.  It runs in my family.  The money raised for the Weekend to End Women's Cancers is so important, & I can personally experience the many ways it helps people like myself, & my sisters. 

I am also looking for more opportunities to teach cancer prevention through nutrition, & I hope that one day soon, a prevention program will get incorporated into the battle against cancers.

That's why I walk & fundraise, in hopes that we can help find a way to prevent cancer, detect cancer earlier, & prolong lives!

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 & other women's cancer research, education, services and care.
