Stronger Than Strong

Welcome to Stronger Than Strong's fundraising page! We've been walking in memory of George Murphy for the past 4 years. Last year we also started walking in honour of Abigale Latoszek. Last year we raised over $6,000 and this year we'd like to go bigger! 

Let me tell you a bit about our Superstars:

George was a hilarious, generous soul. He was the type of person to take the shirt off his back for someone in need. Family meant the world to him, and he was the glue. George was a local artist specialising in typical Newfoundland scenery. Over the years he taught art classes, made sets for filmed shows at CBC and opened his own souvenir store with his wife Irene where his art is still being sold to tourists all over the world. George had battled a couple different cancers which he won before lastly being diagnosed with Leukemia. When I tell you he put up a fight, I mean it! Even throughout his last months, weeks & days he found a way to continue to use art as an outlet. His family still feels the loss of him everyday. 

Abigale is a smart, beautiful 7 year old who was diagnosed with (SR B-Cell AL) Leukemia at the age of 5. Abigale is a lover of animals, mainly horses, crafting, dancing & singing. She has been the definition of strong throughout her battle so far and is currently in Maintenance. Abigale is a part of a study to help get a new drug approved for childhood cancer. With all of our fingers crossed Abi will ring the bell sometime of summer 2022. She is usually found smiling throughout her pain. 

We walk for them. We raise money for them. We support them.

We are Stronger Than Strong and hope that you stand with us!

Stronger Than Strong

Stronger Than Strong is participating in Light The Night St. John's on October 23 to fight blood cancers.

In 2020 we made history, and for the first time Canadians celebrated on the same day, virtually. The community reunited and raised close to $5 million to support blood cancers, despite the pandemic.

Now in 2021, COVID-19 continues to significantly impact people affected by a blood cancer.

Never has our community needed us more. Never has the challenge been greater.

Never has it been more important to take back the light that cancer and COVID -19 have tried to take away!
