Welcome to My Personal Page
On September 10th, 2016 I will take part in the Cedars CanSupport Dragon Boat Race & Festival in order to help raise awareness and much needed funds for cancer patients and their families at the McGill University Health Center (MUHC). Unfortunately this disease has affected more and more of us, whether it being our family members or ourselves. In 2015 Cancer affected my life in many ways. In June of 2015 my Grandfather Antonio lost his decade long fight against Lymphoma. My Grandfather Joao was also diagnosed with cancer this year. He has fought through radiation and surgery, while being in his 80’s, and is currently in remission.
In October my boyfriend Kevin, was diagnosed with a rare form of Germ Cell tumor in his chest at 27 years old. He commenced intense treatment immediately, which was then followed by a large surgery to remove the tumor. Now 7 months later I am proud and ecstatic to say he is in remission and is a cancer survivor. The Cedars was a big part of his treatment, making it bearable for him and our family to make it through his treatments and hospital stays. They are also helping him work through his recovery, providing tools and support. They provide so many amazing services to patients, survivors and their families, and by raising money for this cause we can assist them to help others.
All monies raised go directly to Cedars CanSupport, a division of the Cedars Cancer Institute, which aims to aid patients, and their families who are currently undergoing cancer treatment. Cedars CanSupport provides free psychological, emotional, practical and financial support to cancer patients and their families being treated at the McGill University Health Center (MUHC).
Thank you in advance for your kind consideration and generosity.
