Hi Friends,

June 10, 2010 was the day I found out my father Antonio Aquino, who was made of steel and who was the strongest human I knew, had kidney cancer.  I still remember it, the doctor began speaking about removing the kidney, going to see an oncologist, starting chemo and radiation while the whole thing seemed so surreal and I shook my head in disbelief. On that day I realized that the strongest man I knew was going to have a battle ahead of him and would need to try and fight this horrible disease.

The brilliant teams at Princess Margaret Hospital took care of this amazing man I called my "father".  They did all they could to help him fight this battle with dignity. But the cancer took a toll and my father, my rock died on February 25, 2011 with his family by his side.  We always hoped for the best, but it was a terrible time in our lives. My father was always incredibly positive about his ability to beat the disease. He was brave and strong throughout! 

This year I decided in his memory I would make a change and do something to help others, in his honour. I am now a personal player for the SCOTIABANK® ROAD HOCKEY TO CONQUER CANCER!  

Antonio Aquino loved hockey so what a great way to help this cause but to do it in his legacy! 

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.

There was over 206,200 estimated new cases of cancer in Canada in 2017.  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.

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 is time to get off the bench and into the game, so please consider supporting my fundraising campaign a donation – any amount helps.

Thank you!
