I am taking the Challenge at CancerCare Manitoba's 10th Anniversary of Challenge for Life – BECAUSE I CAN
It has been 10 YEARS since I was diagnosed with breast cancer and I have been participating in this fantastic cancer fundraiser for 10 YEARS.
Most of you know my story. I am a typical type A person and decided very early on in my battle with cancer that it would not define me. I have lost my two "Sandras" but I know they are helping me with my challenge and every step I take.
I am now also taking this challenage because of my Dad, IKE. He Was diagnosed with Stage IV liver cancer that had spread to both lungs and lymph nodes. MY DAD PASSED TWO WEEKS AFTER BEING DIAGNOSED.
THIS YEAR I AM DEDICATING MY WALK TO MY DAD...........THE HIKE FOR IKE
The goal is to prevent every cancer we can; those we cannot prevent we strive to detect early and those we do not detect early, we treat with the best available options. CancerCare Manitoba is committed to continuous learning and improvement through world-class research.
The CancerCare Manitoba Foundation is the only organization exclusively fundraising for CancerCare Manitoba. While CancerCare Manitoba works in partnership with Manitoba Health, some programs and services may not be eligible for government funding. CancerCare Manitoba Foundation raises funds to bridge this gap and help deliver the best research, patient care, treatment and support for all Manitobans and their families living with cancer.
Join me in the Challenge – either by registering to Walk It or Work It or by supporting me with a donation. We'll do it together.... because we can!
