Welcome to Ursel Flett's personal page
1 in 8 Canadian women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. Women are living longer, healthier lives after a breast cancer diagnosis, but there is still so much work to be done. I’m participating in this year’s Canadian Cancer Society CIBC Run for the Cure to make breast cancer beatable. I’m running in of the incredible women in my life, and I need your help!
Please contribute what you can to help me achieve my fundraising goal. Every dollar makes a difference. Your donation will fund innovative breast cancer research to help save the lives of more women and provide support programs to those affected by this disease.
Did you know that just $100 could fund 2 hours of life-saving research in a world class laboratory? Your contribution could lead to the next breakthrough!
Together, we can change the future of breast cancer.
I am a breast cancer survivor of 17 years. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in March 2001 a month before my 40th birthday. I had a mastectomy with lymph node removal. 6 chemo treatments in which 3 were delayed because I wasn't strong enough. 4 weeks of radiation in which I had to leave my children with my family to stay in Edmonton to attend the Cross Cancer Institute and almost 3 years of taking tamoxifen.
Cancer runs in my family with my Mother Aunts Cousins. This run means a lot to me. For my team I am very honoured that you are participating along with me so that we can be part of this wonderful run for the cure!
Thanks in advance for your support!
