Help me to Help Others!!
Hello Family & Friends!
Let's do THIS again! At this time as last year I am not sure if I will physically be able to walk with you all but I can assure you I will be there cheering everyone on.
Four years ago ...a beast entered my life and turned EVERYTHING upside down!!!. With a lots of LOVE & support, a great medical team & the Grace of God I am still here and determined to make the best of everyday.
Many women prior to me have participated in clinical trials, studies etc...that have allowed the medical profession to advance their research and knowledge. This is one of the deadliest forms of cancer and the most silent one, many are not diagnosed until they are at a very advance stage like myself. There has not been much advancement in the past 50 years but the more funds that are raised it will allow for more research & advancement. Current stats state that someone with my diagnosis have a survival rate of 5 years or less. I am determined to prove this stat wrong!!!
My profile picture includes my AWESOME medical team. Without them I would NOT be where I currently am. Dr. Dhani and Judy are part of the greater team at Princess Margaret Hospital. One of the top 5 Cancer Centres in the world. I am blessed to be a patient there with the resources they have access to. As I write this I am currently on a clinical trial that has allowed me to have a full year of feeling almost like my old self. PARP inhibitor / Olarparib, to me this has been a miracle drug. Compared to the traditional chemo this was much less invasive to my day to day existence. Yes there are side effects but MUCH more tolerable. Unfortunately it appears that my body may not be reacting to it any longer but I am hopeful another clinical trial may be coming.
THAT is why raising funds is so important to me and all those who are inflicted with this beast!
Please join me on September 8, 2019 to either walk with me or to donate ANY amount. EVERY dollar counts!!!
To entice you to participate we will be coordinating a BBQ after the walk at our place. I will send more info as we approach the date.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart,
