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.
I will be participating in this race in honour and in the memory of my son Shawn Jurow-Mengon and to support my brother in law Bob Bouchard who is currently battling lymphoma.
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.
