Cancer Sucks!!!! Especially when it snatches life from the young.
Almost 3 years ago on her birthday my daughter's best friend passed away on the day of her 15th birthday. Nine months from the day of her diagnosis.
I am doing Relay for Life for 3 reasons. The first is because of the suffering I have seen and hopefully this can help in some small way.
Secondly I am doing this to support my daughter who along with her friends is organizing this Relay for Life in Elora. Their strength and determination is inspiring.
And finally I am joining with my beautiful partner, Audrey, who is a cancer survior to form the Happy Feet team.
Happy Feet is one of my favorite movies and I hope our team and all the other happy feet can raise enough money to eradicate this awful disease.
With nearly 1 in 2 Canadians expected to be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, I’m more determined than ever to help change the future of this disease. My family and friends could be affected. And that makes it personal.
Please help me reach my fundraising goal. No matter how much you donate, every dollar goes a long way. A donation of $25, $50 or $100 could help ensure a team of researchers has the resources they need to make a life-changing discovery, or a patient has access to support services when they need it most.
We're so excited to have your school join the Canadian Cancer Society Relay For Life! Once you submit this form, we'll get in touch to provide you with more information about hosting Relay at your school.
