Hi Friends & Family,
I am participating in the 2021 RIDE INSIDE in support of CancerCare Manitoba. When going through my cancer treatment, I spent many days in the care of the doctors and nurses at CancerCare Manitoba. My family is forever grateful for the generosity of those who have donated to fund research and find treatments for kids diagnosed with cancer.
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.
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.
