This May I’m participating in Workout to Conquer Cancer to get moving and support BC Cancer patients! I'm joining others across the province to move, no matter where we are, every single day of the month.
I'm working our for myself I'm working out for all the friends I've lost, I'm working out for my children. Only 2 years ago I was too weak to to work out. Only 2 years ago I had surgeries that prevented me from moving my body the way I wanted to. I'm working out not because I have to, but because I CAN. I'm working out because the long term side effects of chemo are uncertain and exercising will help lower my risk.
I'm joining Tamaras team who I met at a cancer retreat in 2018. She was a breath of fresh air. She was strong and fierce and funny. She left me in awe and we lost her far too soon.
One in two British Columbians are affected by cancer. That's why I've committed to move and raise funds for patients, survivors and those we've lost. This challenge is more than exercise, it's about a community who believe we can make an impact, even from our homes.
So, as I get ready to sweat my way through May for every patient who cannot, please show your support by making a donation today.
