For the fourth year in a row, I am walking in memory of my Mom who died of bladder cancer on May 1, 2012. Sandy Brown fought this disease for 3 tireless years, but passed away at the age of 68. She was far too young to go and had so much to live for, including 9 grandchildren. My efforts, and those of my team mates, will help ensure other people like my Mom have a greater chance of survival!
Bladder cancer is the fifth most deadly form of cancer to affect Canadians, and yet funding for bladder cancer research is also only a fraction of what other “more popular” cancers receive.
I have been a cancer research fundraiser since 2006. For 3 years, I captained a Run for the Cure team. And in 3 additional years, I co-captained a team with Libby Znaimer for The Weekend To End Women’s Cancers. Our supporters helped raise some $140,000 for cancer research. In 2015, my team raised $5000 in the Bladder Cancer Awareness Walk. In 2016, our total was $6500. Last year, our total was $8000. This year, we’ve set a goal of team goal of $9000! Please help me make it happen by making a tax deductible donation!
I would also like to extend a big thank you to my supportive company, ZoomerMedia Ltd, for sponsoring my team!
Thank you for making a donation! Big or small, it is greatly appreciated!
