Welcome to my Fundraising Page
I am participating in Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon 2018 to support the mission of the Canadian Cancer Society.
I initially registered for the Scotiabank Marathon to prove to myself I can physically run 42.2 km. My motivation for participating in this race has changed, and I have opted to fundraise as improving cancer treatment is something personal to me. I am running on behalf of the people I personally know in my life undergoing treatment.
In the last 2 years, my understanding of the effect that cancer has on patients, families, friends and colleagues has changed significantly. My professional and personal experiences have connected me with people who have been impacted directly from this disease.
No two patients have the same treatment plan, and treatment effectiveness varies by person. Monitoring and tweaking dosages during treatment offers a significant improvement to the quality of life of a patient, but is not possible without resources and equipment.
The money raised from this event helps fund cancer research that is improving cancer treatments, preventing cancer and saving lives. Your donation will help provide reliable and up-to-date information on cancer, risk reduction and treatment, offer vital community-based support services for people living with cancer and their families, and advocate for healthy public policies. Every person who is impacted by this disease will have a different experience, and ensuring programs are available to those in need is critical.
Your donation towards the Canadian Cancer Society would mean the world to me, and the others impacted by this disease.
Thanks for your support,
