Last June, I was diagnosed with a rare form of skin cancer. On the eve of my 1 year check-up, I wanted to find a way to give back to the people and organization that saved my life. Additionally, June 16th is my mom's birthday and she is a breast cancer survivor, so I figured this challenge would be fitting.
With this challenge, I hope to raise awareness on the importance of early detection for both skin and breast cancer. So on June 16th 2019, I will be participating in Seek the Peak and fundraising in benefit of the BC Cancer Foundation.
Follow me on Instagram @melsays to be a part of this gruelling yet very exciting 13km 1400m trail adventure.
The BC Cancer Foundation is the fundraising partner of BC Cancer. Every dollar raised stays right here in BC, advancing research and enhancing care for the people of B.C.
With your help, BC CAN make a difference in the lives of all British Columbians, it did for mine! One in two people in our province will face cancer in their lifetime and BC Cancer is igniting progress to break down cancer, piece by piece, in the labs and clinics.
Thank you for considering making a donation!
Cheers to life! xo
