On September 7th, 2019 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.
This will be my 11th year doing the race; I do it to honour the memory of my mother whom I lost to cancer almost 11 years ago. In order to participate, I need to raise a fair bit of money, and I need the support of my friends, family and colleagues to raise enough.
Cancer affects the lives of everyone at some point or another and I know first hand that we need services to continue to exist help people through it. This race rallies people together to help.
