A Few Simple Questions For You

Have you been affected by cancer? 

Had to sit there and watch life deteriorate and slowly slip away from a loved one and not be able to understand why? I have.

Had a friend lose a love of their life?
See parents lose there child?
Lose a parent to the awful disease?

I ask you these questions not to upset you but to get you to see that together we can make a difference.

The sad statistics taken from Cancer.ca:

  • Based on 2009 incidence rates, 40% of Canadian women and 45% of men will develop cancer during their lifetimes.
  • On average, 3,340 Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer every week.
  • On average, 1,470 Canadians will die of cancer every week.
  • Cancer is the leading cause of premature death in Canada: 1,026,600 years of life were lost in 2004 as a result of cancer. This represents 32% of the potential years of life lost resulting from all causes of death.

To me these aren’t just statistics.  They are my family, friends, co-workers & neighbours.

So far, the generosity from my small part of the world has been outstanding.  I’ve reached 92% of my fundraising goal for Relay.

I would love to break $2,500.00 by Friday.  With YOUR help I can do it. If you can relate to any of what I’ve written about, I encourage you to considering making a donation. 

Big or Small, the amount is not important.  It all helps.


Thank you.
