OK Everyone - It's time for an intervention!!
While this is in part my choice for a healthier lifestyle, the real cause is to raise awareness and funds for ground breaking cancer research at the BC Cancer Agency.
The statistics are two in five British Columbians will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. I should consider myself very blessed when I think of people who are fighting this battle - cousin Walter - such a strong young man who doesn't deserve this; buddy Cam's brother who has just started his fight; and of course my amazing wife was only 21 when she lost her mom to cancer. I know numerous others and I am certain you do as well.
I invite you to make a donation - the funds go directly to life-saving cancer research and will in no way contribute to my 'off the wagon' party on March 1! Just kidding of course - there will be no party.
If you'd like to join me, you can do so at www.losethebooze.ca.
Here is to those fighting for their life, to those of us yet to be told that we will be fighting for our life, and to those who have fought before us.
