Welcome to Cheryl Benoit-Cameron's personal page
1 IN 8 CANADIAN WOMEN WILL DEVELOP BREAST CANCER IN THEIR LIFETIME.
I participated in this run for 16 years, always inspired by the courage, grace and determination of those facing this disease. Every year crossing the finish line, I was humbled and honored to be supporting women who were fighting this battle and remembering those who had lost it.
I never once thought I would be facing this disease head on. I'm not sure why; cancer does not discriminate.
And then, in 2017 I heard the words "you have breast cancer." After surgery, months of chemotherapy and radiation, and ongoing treatment, I am beyond grateful to be able to run this year as a SURVIVOR.
I am thankful for the significant progress made in research and treatment for this disease. It is the reason I am where I am, in terms of my recovery, and it gives me hope for a brighter future. However, there is still much work to be done and I cannot forget the 26,000 women who will receive the shocking and devasting news this year.
I am running again on Sept. 30th to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer. Every dollar counts. Together, we can change the future of breast cancer; a future where hopefully no one has to hear those words.
LET ME BE YOUR 1 in 8.
Thanks in advance for your support! #IDIDN'TFIGHTALONE
