BE BADASS EVERYDAY
I AM A BRAVEY SEAL
I come from both sides as a doctor and a patient. I am an advocate, a spokesperson and a Regional Primary Care Lead for Cancer Care with Cancer Care Ontario. I have been broken, I had bilateral breast cancer in 2010 and I believe in making the cancer journey better. I carry a BRCA1 gene mutation that gave me an 80% chance of breast cancer and 60% chance of ovarian cancer. I pass it on. I am challenged daily by complications but everyday is a mountain of attitude and together we can climb our own mountains to make a difference. I will have Mark by my side as the forgotten hero - the caregiver who helps through every hurdle. I will walk to raise money for genetic research in high risk genetic mutations such as mine that will affect my family, my daughter Olivia. I will walk to see a sea of pink in support and awareness of making a difference to breast cancer. I will walk to remember where I have been and where I am going and purpose in what I do now.
This year we are having an ART TOUR on our lake....
My art was inspired by the Art Therapy
that helped me through my journey.
Now at the next level, Art is the window to our healing,
a place I go to where time stands still on Six Mile Lake.
All Art will be paid directly to this site.

When did you do something for the first time?
