Welcome to My Fundraising Page!
I have tried time and time again to find the right words to express my feelings and why maybe I wanted to do this run, but also why I want others to support it, but I find it difficult as it’s not my story to tell. I don’t know what it feels like to be told you have cancer. I can’t actually fathom what it must feel like, or truly understand what it must feel like to have your first lumpectomy when maybe you’ve never even broken a bone or needed surgery. I literally cringe at the thought of doing radiation next to others who are also fighting a battle like your own, because although I can’t imagine how it might feel, it would be scary and intimidating. I can’t say how great it must feel when you get to “ring the bell” at the end of your radiation session, and I can’t imagine how scary every doctor appointment or mammogram must be. It takes a strong person to fight that fight, and that person is my momma. So I run for her, but also for every one who fights that fight, and also so those who maybe hear those words, “you have cancer.” Maybe, just maybe there may be a future when those words aren’t so scary, and maybe we will be able to cure more cancers.
Every day, 70 Canadians will hear the words “you have breast cancer.” While these Canadians are living longer, healthier lives after a breast cancer diagnosis, but there is still so much work to be done.
By participating in this year’s Canadian Cancer Society CIBC Run for the Cure, I’m joining a collective that is a force-for-life in the face of breast cancer. I’m running in of the incredible people in my life, and I need your help!
Please contribute what you can to help me achieve my fundraising goal. Every dollar makes a difference. Your donation will fund ground-breaking research to help save the lives of more Canadians and provide support programs for people affected by breast cancer.
Thanks in advance for your support!
