F@$K CANCER - Kayaking 2018
My 7th Year paddling!
There is nothing that compares to the feeling of spending 8 days paddling the Rideau with the Kayaking for Cancer group.
Last year I was able to paddle 3 days with my husband and 1 year old daughter following along in a camper. This year our family has grown to 4, and we will all be following along with the paddling crew. It will be a different experience, but it is important for our family to stay dedicated to this cause and honour those I have lost since I started.
I can't wait to get on the water and in the locks.
8 Days with No Hurries, Cancer is the only Worry....Why I Paddle:
The invitation to join this group was put forth to me at the perfect time - an amazing 29 year old girl was fighting her 3rd battle with cancer and I was at a loss for what I could do. This week gave me an answer. Unfortunately I can't cure cancer, I can't cure the heartache it causes, and I can't stop it from ruining families - but I can raise awareness,and raise money to help cure these things. I can spend 8 days with my memories - honouring those who are gone, celebrating those who have won, supporting those who are fighting - I can spend 8 days with no hurries, no mundane worries, focused and remembering.
Extra love for Cristina Faiella Roque and Uncle Mike Gareau...xoxo
