I Kicked Cancer's Ass! Let's help others do the same!
Just over one year ago (August 28, 2018), I was diagnosed with advanced rectal cancer. I was a Stage 3, T4, N1. After treatment and surgery, my pathology showed a complete response to treatment. I am now a T0, N0. The cancer is gone!!!
This past year has gone by so quickly! It was a year of treatments, surgeries, and appointments. There were good days and there were bad days but most importantly, I had the love and support of my family and friends to get through this experience. I am truly blessed and I am forever grateful.
I also want to acknowledge CancerCare, the doctors, nurses, health care aides, technicians, support staff, and the countless volunteers who work tirelessly and often without any acknowledgement or thanks.
In honour of my journey and the amazing support I received, I have registered for Denny’s Kick Butt for Colorectal Cancer fundraising walk/run on September 14, 2019. Cancer can be beaten, I am living proof of that.
I have set a fundraising goal of $500.00 and I would appreciate any donation to help me achieve this goal. Donations go directly to CancerCare Manitoba and tax receipts will be issued for donations of $15.00 and up.
With love and thanks,
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.
Each year more than 6,000 Manitobans receive a cancer diagnosis. Your continued support helps CancerCare Manitoba and its partners prepare for an estimated 50% increase in the number of people diagnosed and living with cancer over the next decade.
By supporting me with a donation, you are helping to support CancerCare Manitoba in its work to change lives and change the course of cancer in our province.
Every donation - no matter the size - is critical as we work together to stay ahead of this disease.
