Hi everyone. Below is the standard blurb but as many of you know I have a personal reason for participating in this event. In December I lost my dear friend Buffy to this horrible disease. She had planned to take part in the Dragon Boat last Sepember but was too weak to do so. This year myself, my husband David, Buffy's husband Dave and her brother Neil, have decided to do this in her memory. She was one of the most courageous people I had the privilige to call my friend, and I am so proud to do this for her. I miss her so...
On September 8th, 2018 I will be taking part in the 13th Annual Cedars CanSupport Dragon Boat Race & Festival to help raise awareness and much needed funds for CanSupport, who provide free, supportive care to cancer patients and their families at the McGill University Health Center (MUHC) Cedars Cancer Centre.
I along with my team and will be training this summer to improve their techniques, synchronization, power strokes, and overall dragon boating team technique so that we will be victorious on Race Day in both their racing and fundraising efforts.
Cedars CanSupport is a program at the MUHC, Cedars Cancer Centre. In collaboration with the healthcare team, Cedars CanSupport provides complementary support complimenting conventional treatment, improving the quality of life of cancer patients and their families. CanSupport is comprised of professional staff and trained volunteers all with the shared goal of providing emotional support, education services, complementary therapies and practical resources to cancer patients and their support networks.
We hope you will help to support us and cheer us on at the beautiful Promenade Pére Marquette in Lachine on Saturday, September 8th.
Thank you in advance for your kind consideration and generosity.
