This fundraiser is in honour of my late husband Cliff, the father of our three children, to raise funds towards testicular cancer research.
Cliff was diagnosed with late stage testicular cancer, with a “poor prognosis” at the age of 39, which metastasized to his lungs and brain. He fought like a warrior for four years and received the very best care and treatment at the BC Cancer Agency and at VGH.
Our family is indebted to the wise, meticulous and compassionate care by his team of oncologists, specialists and nurses, headed by Dr. Bernie Eigl, who were instrumental in providing Cliff with four bonus years to spend with his family.
We lived with hope during our journey with cancer: hope in our faith in God, and also the hope of each new treatment to cure Cliff or prolong his time on earth. We indeed witnessed medical miracles!
We all need this hope. It is our family’s hope that this fundraising would further cancer research that would give other families hope in more time spent with their loved ones.
Thank you for your generosity and your support of this cause!
