1 in 2
One in Two
One out of every two of us is expected to be diagnosed with cancer in our lifetime.
One in four will die from cancer.
Let that set in.
Look at the people around you. Co-workers, friends, family.
And now imagine them or yourself having to hear a doctor say "You have cancer."
Why do we do this event? Why do we hit up everyone we know to give a little more? Host BBQ fundraisers, 50/50 draws, raffles, think of any way we can raise more money... Why?
I do it for Faye, for Ken, for Mark, for Anita, for Christine, for Mona, for Jeannette, for Una, for George, For Liam, ...Jesus it goes on and on. And for so many more that I haven't mentioned.
We do it to end this. We do it to find a cure for cancer in our lifetime.
If you can, please help and please donate.
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.
With the generous support and donations from my friends and family I intend on reaching my goal amount so I can truly help make a difference in the fight against cancer! It’s time to get off the bench and into the game, so please consider supporting my fundraising campaign a donation – any amount helps.
