Welcome to my Fundraising Page
As many of you know, cancer runs rampant in my family. For three generations we have had cancer show up. My maternal grandmother developed cancer in her 50s, my mother had cancer 3 times, and both of my maternal aunts developed cancer. Then cancer started to appear in my generation, I have had 3 cousins and a sister all develop cancer. On top of that, my father-in-law has had cancer and I have had many close friends and aquantances find out they have cancer and have to get treatment for this awful disease.
I am participating in the 2017 Scotiabank Waterfront Marathon to raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society.
The money raised from this event helps fund leading-edge cancer research that is improving cancer treatments, preventing cancer and saving lives; 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.
Please pledge me and help me reach my fundraising goal! Every pledge takes us one step further in the fight against cancer. Online pledging is secure and it saves the Canadian Cancer Society money by reducing administrative costs.
Thanks for your support!

Raising money for Cancer Research
It was estimated that there would be 202,400 new cases of cancer and 78,800 deaths from cancer that would occur in Canada in 2016. I am not sure how close to those numbers Canada got, but in my opinion those numbers need to drop drastically.
I am running in the Toronto Waterfront half Marathon in October 2017. I am running to show myself that I can do it. I am also running to help raise money for Cancer research.
So many families are touched by cancer in so many ways. Some are because immediate or extended family members have gotten cancer and some are because they have friends, co-workers or acquaintances that have gotten cancer. Now more than ever we need to work to eradicate this awful diseases.
