Support My Journey
First off, I would like to thank you for taking the time to visit my Scotiabank Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer personal Player Page. Scotiabank Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer is a Dawn-to-Dusk fundraising event with the proceeds going towards The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.
Once again I will be participating in Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer Toronto 2018 on September 29, 2018 with team Lex. Team Lex will be participating for our 8th year - benefiting the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation - and I have been lucky enough to participate in the previous 7. Lex has made an impression on so many people. I feel that continuing this tradition to raise money for cancer research can one day help find a cure to all cancers.
Cancer patients, like Alexis, do not have much of a choice - they must be strong, and, if they don't want to show self pity --- they must learn to "dance in the rain". The above quotes were found on the internet by Alexis Wronzberg during her fight against Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia ("ALL").
This year I will also be playing in memory of my mother-in-law, Sandra Rose, who relapsed suddenly in October 2014 and subsequently lost her battle to Cancer. She was an amazing lady who loved everyone, including her 11 grand children. I know my 2 daughters ask about her all the time and miss her so much. I will also be playing for my sister-in-law who herself battled Cancer and was diagnosed in November 2016, and as of July 2017, she has been cancer free.
ROAD HOCKEY TO CONQUER CANCER is a Dawn-to-Dusk event, during which time I will be competing in 5 full games of road hockey, so it's going to be a lot of hard work and a long day. However, knowing that I'll be supporting The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation. I will be playing on a team with 8-9 other players, and we hope to make a significant contribution to this amazing cause.
With your generous contributions and support, I believe I can both meet and exceed my fundraising goal and help obtain the funds that will allow continued advances against leukemia and other forms of cancer. We would like your help by contributing to The Princess Margaret as they strive to achieve their vision: CONQUER CANCER IN OUR LIFETIME.
There will be over 206,200 estimated new cases of cancer in Canada this year alone. 80,800 of these cases will result in deaths - it's time to take a stand against this devastating disease. That's why I've decided to participate in Scotiabank Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer and help raise money to support The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation in their mission to eradicate cancer and improve the lives of those living with cancer.
