This May I’m participating in Workout to Conquer Cancer to get moving every day in may in support of BC Cancer patients and in honour of my late team mate and friend Tamara O'Brien who lost her fight to melanoma last fall. She was hands down the most brave and inspirational person I have ever known. Her positive attitude towards life even in the hardest of times or faced with the steepest of obstacles was nothing short of outstanding. She was an amazing athlete and human being, and one of my goals in life is to strive to live life more like she did.
Tamara always spoke fondly of BC cancer foundation and the support she was given by them throughout her journey. So I have joined the team "Hot Tam Summer", a team made in honour of Tamara, to help bring attention to Melanoma awareness month, and raise funds for the organization that helped Tamara.
I look forward to working out each day this month, in support and honour of my team mate, of others close to me who have lost their lives to cancer, and for those who are fingering for their lives every day.
If you would like to support the cause by making a donation, it would be greatly appreciated and would be going to a great organization :)
