Jamie in a PINK TUTU
Donate to my journey and make this Weekend matter!
The Shoppers Drug Mart® Weekend to End Women’s Cancers™ is a 2-day, 60-kilometre or 1-day 32-kilometre walk through the neighbourhoods of Toronto. It’s going to be a challenge, but I’m ready to do something bold and powerful in effort to end all cancers once and for all.
I am doing this walk for the second year after the amazing journey I experienced last year. To walk with so many people who are all striving for the same goal, to find the cure for cancer.
Two weeks before Julie and I started our 60km journey last year, I was diagnosed with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia. It was a moment were I not only knew someone who has been effected by cancer, but now was also personally one of many who has been diagnosed with this horrendous disease. It was no longer a walk just for my friend who was recently diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma, or for my friend who lost her mother two years ago to cancer or to all my family and friends who have been touched in some way by this horrible disease, it became personal.
It’s based on the realization that we each need to do our part in this fight, so as we can find a cure. So no one else has to hear their Doctor utter that word....cancer!
I can walk. I can raise funds to benefit the The Campbell Family Institute at The Princess Margaret Cancer Centre – a leader in the fight against all women's cancers. I can and choose to be a part of this movement to take down cancer!
I ask you to take a stance with me and join this life-saving adventure for all mother's, daughter's, sons, husbands, family and friends. Be a part of my very personal journey - by giving, by walking with me, or simply by sharing my story with your circle of influence. Don’t stand back and think about what you could have done – take that first step today! Take a chance with me – we have the opportunity to change thousands of lives, beginning with our own. We need to raise a minimium of $2,000 each, a challenging feat some would think, but I know with all the support from my friends, family and their friends and family we can not only accomplish this but surpass it!!
This isn’t just my journey – it’s yours, too.
Make it a Weekend you’ll never forget.
