2017 Walk – Miles to Go

 

Ten years and still walking !

 

A word of deep gratitude for all those who have supported me through the years and continued to walk in the years I was not able. Ten years is a testament to the success of the research programs at Princess Margaret Hospital. In talking with members at the support group I am encouraged by the number of people who have lived with this cancer for long terms and encouraged by the hope I read in the words of those new to this cancer.

 

However, I am mindful of those cancer fighters who have passed before me…they have had an immense influence over the years… Carolyn Henry who started me on this fight back stance and David Bloom who has left a legacy of hope for us all.… people like Cindy Leder and Jennifer McLaughlin who continue the fight after losing their loved ones to Myeloma… their continued fight for all of us gives me strength. This cancer will be beaten.

 

Princess Margaret Hospital and Myeloma Canada continue to announce progress in the understanding of Multiple Myeloma and the implications to the improved treatment and quality of life for the patient. I am truly grateful for the value and hope I get from this research made possible through your continuing support.


The Myeloma team at Princess Margaret and the team that supports me in this Walk in Toronto and Calgary and the team in my private life continue to have my back and Jeannie and I are forever grateful. 

We have made big steps forward… we need to continue the fight – continue to understand the disease and develop the right response to an evolving cancer, and yes, search for that quality of life that endures.


The woods are lovely dark and deep 

But I have promises to keep 
And miles to go before I sleep 
And miles to go before I sleep 

        From Robert Frost… 

We have lost dear friends in December and January to cancer... David D and Betty. We thought they would walk with us and laugh in the day and share our fears in the night. We will hold you close to us as we continue our way.
 
Old friends
Memory brushes the same years
Silently sharing the same fear

Time it was
And what a time it was
It was . . .
       (Simon and Garfunkel)
