The loss of Jacques has left a profound gaping hole in everyone who was close to him. Among other things, he was kind, intelligent, witty, brave, wise, patient, humble, generous, and selfless.
When Jacques participated in the 5K Walk last year, by that point he already knew that he wasn't walking for himself anymore. He had run out of treatment options, and we lost him only 8 weeks later. Even though he is no longer here to take part in the walk, we feel compelled to honour his legacy and continue this important annual tradition in his memory.
This Father's Day (Sunday, June 17), please support us as we participate in the 5K "Journey to Conquer Cancer" Walk to help advance Multiple Myeloma research at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.
Thank you for your generous support!
