This February, I've committed to Lose the Booze and give up alcohol for the entire month.
While I'm swapping my beloved wine for water, I will also be fundraising for the BC Cancer Foundation. One in two people in our province will face cancer in their lifetime, so this is a cause I’m willing to be parched for.
In fact, two weeks ago, my own mom was diagnosed with this brutal disease, and her prognosis isn't good. I've become her full-time caregiver, and watching this once vibrant, feisty, tap-dancing grandma deteriorate is truly soul crushing. If I can go a whole month without reaching for the cab-sauv, well, I can do anything.
UPDATE: My beautiful mom was taken from us recently, only 3 weeks after she was diagnosed. There are no words to express how empty my soul feels and how angry I am that this demon of a disease still has no cure. Please consider donating to my fundraising efforts in memory of my mother or in the hope that you’ll never have to watch your own mother die this way. Your gift will directly support life-saving cancer research taking place at BC Cancer – and will play a huge role in keeping me motivated for the rest of the month.
Thank you so much for your support!
