Dear friends, family and colleagues,
I am participating in the 2021 RIDE INSIDE in support of the CancerCare Manitoba. As many of you know, cancer is a disease that has been close to my heart for a number of years, especially since my sister Aynslie went through it. Her journey profoundly changed my life. I'm pleased to share that nearly five years later, Aynslie is doing well, thanks to the world-class care she received right here at home in Manitoba through CancerCare Manitoba.
I want to do my part to help other individuals and their families in our community. RIDE INSIDE will raise critical funds for young people with the hardest to treat cancers.
Over the last five decades, there has been a dramatic improvement in treatments and outcomes for many pediatric and young adult cancers. However, 20 percent of patients whose cancers have spread, returned, or proven resistant to treatment still have a challenge to face.
PROFYLE, short for PRecision Oncology For Young peopLE, is dedicated to helping find cures for the rarest and hardest to treat cancers young people are facing. This initiative gives children, adolescents and young adults who are out of conventional treatment options another chance to beat their cancer.
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 how big or small - is critical as we work together to stay ahead of this disease.
Thank you as always, for your consideration and support.
