Welcome to my fund raising page!
I am a Cancer Fighter.
Cancer is a terrifying battle that people may have to deal with at some point in their lives. I was fortunate enough not to have had this effect my life for 21 years, but I cannot say that anymore. Just over 2 years ago, one of my most favourite and important people, my grandfather, was diagnosed with stage 3 rectal cancer. Then, 6 months later he was also diagnosed with stage 1 lung cancer. At almost 84 years of age this can be a detrimental diagnosis. My grandfather is one of the strongest people I have ever met and he has not let this get the best of him. He has undergone many different surgeries and radiation treatments and I'm happy to say that his cancer is currently under control. Unfortunately, he still has to frequently visit the hospital, spend nights there and is in a perpetual state of discomfort and pain. My grandfather always taught me to never let anybody or anything knock you down and that is why I created this fund raiser. I want to do my part and fight along with him.
For those of you who know me well, you know I love my long hair very much. I always knew that when the time came to cut it, that I would without a doubt, donate it so that maybe someone else could love it even more than I do. The time has finally come for me to say goodbye to my hair, but just a donation of my hair doest feel like enough. That is why I am asking you to please join me and donate to help put and end to this disease that affects so many people (every small donation can help!). We could be the difference in finding a cure so that maybe another little girl gets to spend more time with her grandfather. LETS MAKE A CHANGE!
Please donate today and help me reach my fundraising goal! The money raised will help Canada’s brightest researchers make groundbreaking discoveries, provide cancer patients with much-needed support services and ensure that other life-changing work is possible.
