Brutus et Meli marchent pour Yves :) - Brutus and Meli are walking for Yves :)

Brutus et moi participons à la marche Bark for Life de la Société canadienne du cancer le 4 octobre.

Le 12 juin dernier, nous avons appris que mon père avait un cancer avancé du colon. Cette journée, je lui ai promis d’être là à chaque étape pour lui. Deux semaines après le diagnostic, il a été opéré pour enlever la masse. Une longue opération de 6 heures. Il a passé un mois à l’hôpital suite à des complications de l’opération et il a dû être réopéré quelques semaines plus tard. Nous allons maintenant bientôt commencer la chimiothérapie.

Cependant, tout cela n’aurait pas été possible sans l’efficacité et la rapidité des services offerts. C’est pourquoi Brutus et moi voulons contribuer en amassant des fonds pour la recherche, les traitements et tous les services offerts.

Je l’ai déjà dit, et je le dis encore, mon père c’est le plus fort!

 

Brutus and I are participating in the event Bark for life on October 4th to support the mission of the Canadian Cancer Society.

Last June 12th, we learned that my dad had a severe and advanced colorectal cancer. On that day, I promised him to be there every step of the way. Two weeks after the diagnostic, he had surgery to remove the mass. A long operation of 6 hours. He was in the hospital for a month due to complications of the surgery and had to be operated again a couple of weeks after. We will now be starting chemotherapy soon.

None of this would have been possible without the quick and effective services we have received from everybody at the hospital. This is why Brutus and I want to contribute in helping raising funds for 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.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, the strongest man I’ll ever know is my dad!
