1 in 9 Canadian women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime;
I was one of those women.
This year, I have formed a new team called the "Cherry Blossoms," and it comprises of strong women with the same vision - a vision of a future with a cure for breast cancer.
Our team needs your support. Did you know that just $100 could fund two hours of lifesaving research in a world class laboratory? Your contribution could be the cause of the next lifesaving breakthrough which chances are will likely be someone you care for dearly. Your donation will fund innovative research to save the lives of more women, and provide support programs to those affected by this disease. I've been there. It's a tough journey and impossible to do it alone.
In honour of all the incredible women in our lives, and some that have lost the battle of breast cancer, we will run, walk or crawl to the finish line.
