My Beautiful Mother and I, less then 2 years before losing her battle to cancer.
Support My Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer?
Welcome to my Personal Page! The Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer benefiting The Princess Margaret, is a cycling journey from Toronto to Niagara Falls that I'm embarking on to fight cancer. It will be a challenge in a number of ways, physically, mentally and emotionally but with your generosity, a real impact will be made! For several years I have wanted to try my hand at this very challenging but very worthwhile fundraising endeavor. Everyone has stories of friends and/or family members that have struggled with this terrible disease but you never know how devastating physically and emotionally this disease is until you are struck with it first hand. Unfortunately, this year my family was touched by it right to the core, my mother, Mary Edwards-Emo was diagnosed with Metastatic Pancreatic Cancer at 63 years of age on April 5th, 2011, eighty-four (84) days after her diagnosis, we lost her to this disease. This year I will be riding to help raise funds to research a cure for cancer so that maybe one day, no one will ever have to go through what my mother and our family went through.
Please help me honour my mom's memory with this challenge by contributing to this history-making event. Every donation is greatly appreciated and every penny counts. Funds raised in The Ride to Conquer Cancer will support breakthrough research, exemplary teaching, and compassionate care at The Princess Margaret, one of the top 5 cancer research centres in the world.
THANK YOU ALL SO VERY MUCH
