Hello everyone!!! This next June, I will be participating in the callenge for life to raise funds for cancer care Manitoba. Not all of you know, and I wished I could have told everyone in person, but last April (2018) I was officially diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. lymphoma is a type of blood cancer and I am really really grateful for all the help I got from friends, colleagues and family! Both during trestment and after, Cancer Care offers a lot of support through a library, workshops conferences and support groups, some of them specific to young adult with cancer. I am happy and honored that I will be able to walk to pay it forward to the people who will need all that help next. I’m also teaming up with amazing young cancer survivors to take up the challenge so check out my team « straight outta chemo » as well!!! Please feel free to give whatever you like, or just share!! Also remember that if you know someone going through the same, I’m there to talk and share my experience if needed!! Thanks a lot for everything!! Xxxx
CancerCare Manitoba is the provincially mandated cancer agency for all of Manitoba, charged with the responsibility for cancer prevention, detection, treatment, research and education. CancerCare Manitoba is dedicated to excellence in cancer care, to enhancing the quality of life for those diagnosed and living with cancer and blood disorders and to improving the control of cancer for all Manitobans.
Our 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.
By participating in this annual “Made-in-Manitoba” event, I have committed to help reduce my own risk of cancer by taking steps to improve my overall health. I am also committing to raise at least $500 to support CancerCare Manitoba - and all those who cannot walk.
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!
