Please consider sponsoring my walk in memory of my friend Lindsay Tam!
I am participating again in the Journey to Conquer Cancer Run/Walk on Sunday, June 18, 2017 and raising funds for cancer research at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.
I am walking in memory of my friend Lindsay, who was my roommate in our first year of university. Lindsay was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in our second year (she was only 21), and was 26 when she passed away. It was devastating to see a friend die so young.
Princess Margaret's pancreatic cancer research is leading in the country and is one of the top 5 comprehensive cancer research centres in the world. Princess Margaret is developing innovative cancer therapies that are changing cancer care for patients in Canada and around the world. I'm hoping that you will consider making a donation to support this great organization.
There is not a ton of research on pancreatic cancer, especially for young people like Lindsay. It is a notoriously aggressive and fatal disease, and not very high-profile in cancer research fundraising. If you are able, please consider sponsoring me!
Thank you for your generous support!
