To my amazing family and friends,

 

For a few years now, you’ve heard my story and you know of my gratitude and passion for the work that’s being done at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.  They were thorough in my diagnosis and treatment and instrumental in getting me back to a thriving - not just surviving - life.

 

Often times with these annual fundraising events, enthusiasm and participation begins to wane and people begin to wonder whether they should continue with the cause.  This was something that crossed my mind last year – and I’m a person who has absolutely no right to lose their enthusiasm for this cause! 

 

Last year, I had the chance to walk a short distance with Dr. Tak Mak and he told me more about their breakthrough drug which went to clinical trials almost immediately because the preliminary results were so positive.  I almost felt like my work here was done but his words at the closing ceremonies still ring in my ears.  As we celebrated this new breakthrough drug and he humbly thanked the walkers for their invaluable contributions, he also said “don’t give up on us now”.  We have come so far in cancer treatment and personalized cancer medicine continues to provide better outcomes, but we haven’t arrived yet.  There are still so many people suffering from cancers without cures and so many loved ones standing helplessly on the sidelines.  So, my work is not done and I will walk again.

 

This year, I’m thrilled to be walking with our oldest daughter, Julia.  Her quiet leadership and sharp wit will be a fantastic addition to our team.  Sophie and Paul will continue to be our steadfast cheerleaders. 

 

As always, I appreciate the ongoing support that you all show in so many ways.  If you are able, please consider sponsoring me for the Weekend to End Women’s Cancers.

 

With my sincere thanks,

 

Kate
