2018 Walk – Miles to Go

 

 

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 plus years is a testament to the success of the research programs at Princess Margaret Hospital.


With the continued advances in therapy I
remain positive on the outlook.... increased understanding leads to new approaches to treatments and in the hands of those caregivers at Princess Margaret I am confident.


I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow

I feel my fate in what I cannot fear

I learn by going where I have to go

       from Theodore Roethke

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.… the many people like Cindy Leder and Jennifer Egan 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 are a team of extremely dedicated individuals participating in the 6th Annual Journey to Conquer Cancer Run or Walk on Sunday, June 17, 2018 and raising funds for cancer research at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.

We are running/walking to benefit those currently fighting and to be a part of a movement to save lives. With your help, we can raise funds for ground breaking research and treatment at The Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.

As one of the top 5 comprehensive cancer research centres in the world, The Princess Margaret is developing innovative cancer therapies that are changing cancer care for patients in Canada and around the world.

Thank you so much for your support and with your help, we will CONQUER CANCER IN OUR LIFETIME!

Thank you for your generous support!
