I have committed to this cause in honour of my sister Vicki Blattmann, who died of cancer just over seven years ago. Vicki received her care and treatment at the BC Cancer Agency in Victoria, British Columbia. I accompanied her on several occasions and was aware of the phenomenal care that she received from all the caring professionals there.
Another member of my family is currently benefiting from the ongoing research that the BC Cancer Foundation supports. My daughter-in-law, Lisa Reid, has refractory Hodgkins Lymphoma. Lisa was able to join a clinical tiral for monoclonal antibody treatment that is being studied thanks to clinical research and funding.We are so very grateful for this drug trial which has officially put Lisa's cancer in remission.
So, as I get ready to take on a full month of workouts, please consider supporting my efforts by making a donation today.
If you donate to one cause this year, please make it this the one!
