For the past 5 years I have participated in the ‘Light the Night Walk’, in support of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada. The Halifax walk was completed last month and I’m proud to have been a part of fundraising over $510,000… It was a record year for Halifax for fundraising! Halifax was one of the top 5 cities in Canada!
My personal motivations are very clear for embarking on this journey; not only do I want to help find a cure for blood cancers, but I want to give hope to all those families fighting the battle.
Unfortunately, my Mom lost her battle on October 3rd, 2014 to Lymphoma at age 63. It doesn’t seem fair and we miss her every day. I walk to raise money … to help others, so that one day families will not endure the pain and suffering that comes with cancer.
