Welcome to our team’s Fundraising Page!
My Friends and I are participating in the CIBC Run for the Cure.
This October will mark two years since I had a biopsy and a few days later was told I had breast cancer. It still feels surreal and hard to believe I had breast cancer but my journey has made me stronger and I’m proud to say that today, I'm a breast cancer survivor.
We all know too many people who have gone or are going through the breast cancer journey. I realized through my journey that cancer can hit anyone young or old. It's important that we support charities and raise funds for innovative research so we can kick cancer’s butt.
Last year a few of my friends, husband and I participated in the CIBC Run for the Cure. It was a humbling experience to see how people came out to support such an amazing event and be part of a cause to find a cure for breast cancer. Also we were amazed to see how many Survivors were participating. We raised over $3,000 and this year we have a goal to raise $5,000. I know we can do it with your support.
I am now cancer free, a survivor and this year on Sunday, October 1, we are once again participating in the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure. Please support my fundraising efforts for this year’s Run for the Cure. By making a donation, you are joining a national movement in communities across Canada and helping to fund innovative research and patient support initiatives that help the 1 in 9 women expected to develop breast cancer in their lifetime.
The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation supports life-saving research, such as:
• Identifying new genetic factors that predispose people to breast cancer
• Using state of the art technology to design treatments for breast cancers that have spread to the brain and lungs
Your donation will contribute to the patient support initiatives and advancements in research that are ensuring women live longer, healthier lives after a breast cancer diagnosis.
Be a Changemaker by helping us reach our fundraising goal and donate today. Together, we can create a future without breast cancer.
Thank you for your generosity!
