I am fundraising with Katie’s Krew for the 2021 RIDE INSIDE in support of the CancerCare Manitoba. While I am travelling abroad and will not be participating in the actual event this year, this event is very important to me as it raises 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. Thanks to the passionate investment of donors, today four out of five of these young patients will be cured. I’ve witnessed the amazing results of such efforts as in the case of my sister Katie who has fully recovered from the cancer she was diagnosed with at 13 years old.
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 for your consideration and go Krew!
