This February, our team has committed to Lose the Booze and give up alcohol for the entire month.
Why would we do this to ourselves, you ask?
Because one in two people in our province will face cancer in their lifetime and we're not ok with that stat. So while we’re passing on the pints, and wanting for wine, we’ll also be fundraising for the BC Cancer Foundation. The funds we raise will directly support life-saving cancer research taking place at BC Cancer.
Our team goal is to raise $1000 but I’m sure we can surpass this dollar amount!! Every dollar raised is a step forward in curing cancer!! For example my Mom's story with cancer began in September of 2015. She was diagnosed with colon cancer. They removed the tumour and she spent 7 weeks in Kelowna doing radiation. After that she had 6 months of chemo. At this time we found out that her cancer had spread to her liver and she now has stage 4 colon cancer. This diagnosis 10 years ago would have given her 6 months to live. Treatment in the last 10 years has come along way and this is due to research.
Thank You for taking the time to read my story and if your able to help us reach our goal that would be awesome!!
So please, make a donation to our team today to help make a difference. Your support will also give us the motivation we need to make it all the way to March 1st!
And if you would like to become a Booze Loser yourself, then join our team!
