CANCER. It is a word we all know too well. If you were to ask the person next to you, if they know someone who has had cancer, they will probably shake their head sadly and say yes. My first experience with cancer was my grandfather. He was in his 70’s and diagnosed with prostate cancer. He fought hard and was one of the lucky ones who battled the beast and won. It was a scary time, but seeing him go through the experience and survive victoriously made the word Cancer not seem so deadly.
A few months ago, a friend of mine heard the devastating words. “I’m sorry, you have cancer”. She is young and vibrant, she takes care of her health through diet and exercise and she is a mother of young children. One day she was living the dream and the next she was faced with those 5 words that will forever change her life.
Everyday, over 500 Canadians will hear the words “I’m sorry, you have cancer” and their families, friends and co-workers will rally together and prepare for the fight of their lives. Cancer is a powerful foe, costing us precious time with those we love, affecting men and women of all ages. Together we can take steps towards beating it!
The Shoppers Drug Mart OneWalk to Conquer Cancer benefiting Princess Margaret Cancer Centre is your opportunity to be part of a game-changing movement to conquer cancer. Warriors will walk 25 kms through the streets of Toronto, united, knowing that together they are changing the future for all those affected by this terrible disease.
