For the past 10 years , I have walked The Weekend and I'm so glad that I did. Shoppers Drug Mart® Weekend to End Women's Cancers benefiting The Campbell Family Institute at The Princess Margaret is not only an amazing experience, but the funds raised through it are providing funding now for research that will make breakthroughs bigger than ever would have been possible without The Weekend. I encourage you to read about how they put those dollars to work here
Since it began in 2003, The Weekend has raised over 100 million dollars for The Princess Margaret Hospital, which is phenomenal, and YOU played a key role in that accomplishment. But as momentous as that is, it will take continued effort and dedication to truly make breast and gynecologic cancers a thing of the past. And that's why Rob (gimp) and I are walking again this year! And once again, we need your support.
Whether you would consider donating to support us, to memorialize a lost loved one, to create a better future for the next generations, or for another personal reason, the end result is the same: getting us closer to a brighter future without the fear of cancer. Many of you know how personal this fight is for me and I know that many of you share similar stories. This is why I continue, year after year, to walk the 60kms to find an end to this dreadful disease. I walk for my mother and my grandmother. I walk for your mothers, wives, sisters, nieces, daughters, grand-daughters and friends. I've walked 600 kilometers to see an end to cancer in my lifetime - support me and help me walk 60km more. Rob and I must raise $2000 each to participate and we're counting on your support to reach our goal.

It always touches my heart to see people coming together to put an end to such a horrific disease. I have lost many loved ones to cancer. Also, a few months ago I was diagnosed with the autoimmune diseases Psoriatic Arthritis and Ankylosing Spondylitis. My doctor then told me due to having multiple autoimmune diseases my chances of developing lymphoma are higher. Knowing I am already on injections to control my diseases it scares the crap out of me to think I could develop blood cancer at any time. I really admire Rob and you for taking the initiative to make a difference as there is not too many people on this planet who haven't been affected by this disease. I donated what I could and thank you so much for doing this every year.
I'm sorry too...wrote that with my heart and not my brain.....lost my dad in the 70ties and my mum last year...and the doctors could not help either of them...we donate all that time, but I stopped. maybe I will do it again in the future when my feelings come to a rest...I wish you good luck with the donation!
Thankfully I didn't lose my mom, she's a survivor as was my grandmother for many years before I lost her to Lung Cancer. I know the pain of loss and I know how devastating the disease can be. I'm sorry for your losses Thank you very much for the well wishes
