Welcome to Helen Wagenaar's personal page
I didn’t participate in the Run last year – my previous request for support was in 2015 when I was battling breast cancer myself. I found the lump while in the shower, lost my breast in June, and began chemotherapy in August. Treatment was of course, difficult and all-consuming. In November 2016, I completed my final treatment. Some residual effects remain, but mostly – it’s over and I look forward to a healthy future.
Through all of this, the support and love of family and friends was unwavering. As well, the caring touch of those who nursed and counselled me will forever hold a special place in my heart.
My challenge is to raise $4,000.00 this year, and to run that five kilometre route as fast as I can. Because I can. I am here when others are not. I run for them and I run for me and I run for you. Please help me knock this out of the park.
