The word that no one wants to hear, but unfortunately, we aren’t given a choice.
Like most families in Canada, ours has had its share of exposure to this dreaded disease. My father died of pancreatic cancer. Janice’s grandmother and mother both passed away from cancer. Janice had her battle with Breast Cancer 28 years ago and thanks to the dedicated professionals at Cancer Care Manitoba, she serves as tangible proof that it can be beaten. Unfortunately, our beloved daughter, Allison, was not as lucky as she succumbed to Melanoma three years ago.
I don’t need any more motivation to devote my efforts to raising money for the research and treatment that will ultimately lead to a cure. Thus, I will be walking in the 20 km Challenge for Life again this year to raise money for the Cancer Care Foundation of Manitoba.
Please support me in this cause, so that someday we won’t have to fear this dreaded disease.
Thanks very much,
