In honour of my son and so many others - not today cancer!
Welcome to my personal fundraising page for the Man & Woman of the Year challenge.
Thank you for being part of my campaign to help cure blood cancers!
The Man & Woman of the Year Challenge
Man & Woman of the Year is an intense 10-week fundraising competition taking place in cities across Canada.
From March 24 to June 2, my team and I will fundraise relentlessly and fearlessly for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada. The candidates who, alongside their teams, raise the most funds will win the prestigious titles of Man and Woman of the Year. Last year’s winners raised more than $100,000 each!
About Blood Cancers
Every 24 minutes, someone in Canada is diagnosed with a blood cancer. Blood cancers are the fifth most common form of cancer in Canada, affecting more than 155,000 Canadians.
With your support, research funded by initiatives like Man & Woman of the Year is making a difference. Blood cancers have had the biggest increases in cancer survival in the past three decades, and blood cancer research leads to treatment advances for other cancers and serious diseases.
Why Am I Passionate About Helping?
In June 2020, my 19-year old son went to the ER by himself for the first time in his life (I couldn’t go with him due to Covid restrictions). Several hours later, a doctor called me from my son’s room to tell me that he had a very large mass in his chest that they believed to be cancer. Days later he was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive type of lymphoma, Primary Mediastinal Large B-Cell Lymphoma. Thanks to the research and treatments that have been funded by campaigns like this, he is now in remission and doing very well. I am passionate about raising as much money as possible to continue to fund research, advocacy, and patient programs. One thing that I have learned is that the need for help does not end when the treatment ends.
