Support My Journey
This marks my 7th year as a participant and proud Team Member of the OVARIAN BLITZERS, a top fundraising road hockey team in the SCOTIABANK® ROAD HOCKEY TO CONQUER CANCER event being held this year on September 29th.
Why do I continue to support this cause? Well, its personal - my own fight against cancer back in 2003 shocked me, the fight (and sadly, the loss) of family members and friends over the years inspired me and the sincere belief that without all of us being truly proactive to prevent this disease, the odds will continue to be stacked against us - this is why I continue.
Upon moving to my new home at Yonge & Sheppard 8 years ago, I
had the privilege to meet Dr. Marcus Bernardini where I began to learn what his team of professionals do daily at the Princess Margaret Hospital --> to research and improve the care of women with gynecologic cancers. Since that time, this incredible team of individuals on the Ovarian Blisters have raised over $400,000 towards this fight over the years......and we return again in 2018 but with an even bigger annual team goal --> to raise $150,000 in this year alone!
How can we do this? With fun and inspiring fundraising events including my Blitzer Bowl To Conquer Cancer event being held this year on September 9. I have been blessed to have the support of amazing sponsors, great volunteer and enthusiastic bowling teams that truly make this event what it is today - amazing! I want to thank my past sponsors for helping me build the momentum for the Blitzer Bowl and to my current 2018 sponsors who are funding the event in 2018 who stepping in to truly make it happen:
~200,000 Canadians will be diagnosed this year, ~80,000 will die from it and half of the room you are sitting in while you read this will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.
So, join me today and lets go conquer it together!
With my thanks, your Bowl Master & Proud Ovarian Blitzer,
