Welcome to Oksana Termeer's personal page
1 in 9 Canadian women will get breast cancer in their lifetime.
2 years ago I was one of them and so several of my friends.
I was diagnosed in March 2015 which was a biggest shock in my life!
I went through different stages from shock, to depression, to acceptance. All of them made me look at life with different view and made me relize how life can be changed completely in a heart beat!
Going through treatments is an experience I will not wish to no one and I wish that soon thanks to all the researches we will have the future without cancer!
That’s why on Sunday, October 2nd, I will be participating in the 2016 Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure. The money that I raise will help fund vital research, education and community support initiatives.
Fundraising works. Investments in innovative research and education by the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation have led to progress in breast cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care. As a result, mortality rates have decreased by 43% since the peak in 1986.
We are all in this together. Despite our successes, 67 women are still being diagnosed with breast cancer in Canada every day. Mothers, daughters, fathers, brothers, caregivers and friends; we will all be touched by breast cancer in our lifetime.
This years goal is to have the biggest team ever:) Together, we can help to create a future without breast cancer.
Thank you to all my friends and family
With Love, Oksana
