OneWalk. One Day. ALL Cancers. 

 

The Shoppers Drug Mart® OneWalk™ to Conquer Cancer benefiting Princess Margaret Cancer Centre is a game-changing movement to conquer cancer once and for all. On September 12th, 2015 I will walk 25 kms through the streets of Toronto, united with thousands of others, knowing that together we are changing the future for all those affected by this terrible disease.

 

As an MRT(R) I have been involved in the care of many patients and their families dealing with cancer. I have seen the anxiety of not knowing what might be developing unwanted in their body as they come for the various diagnostic tests. I have seen the anger of having to fight for one's life despite doing everything right - and the fear of the possibility of losing that fight. I have seen the physical pain caused by the deterioration of the tissues and bone by cancer. I have seen and heard the agony of loved ones as they painfully succumb. I have seen my students push themselves to the limit to earn the right to become radiation therapists while at the same time trying to deal with the sufferring or loss of their parent, their brother or sister, their grandparent. I have seen students who have already had to fight the fight themselves.


My commitment is based on love for all my fellow brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers, grandparents, daughters and sons, nieces and nephews, and friends everywhere. It's based on the realization that we each need to do our part in this fight. It's based on my commitment to health care, and the recognition of the importance of improving our ability to practice preventative medicine. I can walk. I can raise funds to support research. I can and choose to be a part of this movement to take down all cancers!


I ask you to take a stand with me and join this life-saving adventure for all those touched by cancer. Be a part of my very personal journey - by giving, by walking with me, or simply by sharing my story. Don’t stand back and think about what you could have done! We have the opportunity to change thousands of lives, beginning with our own.

 

This isn’t just my journey – it’s yours, too.
