Dear friends and family,
We are all touched by cancer at some point in our lives, whether it hits a family member, a close friend, or yourself. I have been fundraising before, as this cause is close to my heart, after losing both of my parents to Cancer, and witnessing my daughter fearlessly beat her Breast Cancer six years ago.
I will be participating in the challenge this year with two of my very close friends in mind, both of whom have had their own fights with Cancer over the past couple of years - both women my own age who pour their heart and soul into life and family. One friend beat Colon Cancer and is now on the recovery path. The other friend, the most life-loving person I have ever known, sadly passed away last summer from Ovarian Cancer…
This May, I will be working out every day, and every day that I do not feel like doing so I will think of them and push through, because no matter how sore or tired I may feel, it is nothing compared to what they went through.
With so many people’s lives having been affected by cancer, so much research and development into treatment is needed. For my friends and family, I am so grateful for the treatment options that were available to them as they fought through.
All the money raised will go toward important lifesaving research with the BC Cancer Foundation.
Please consider contributing. Thank you for your support.
