To My Friends And Family,
I am participating in the 5th Annual Fight to End Cancer in support of The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation. I am raising research dollars – with a vision of reaching the ultimate goal – To Conquer Cancer In Our Lifetime!
Throughout every stage of my life someone I have known and loved has been taken by cancer, from school chums to family members to colleagues and friends. Two years ago I lost my hero and mentor, August Schellenberg, to lung cancer. In 2012 I got the opportunity to work with him and at 75 he could still throw his punches with lightning speed. In his youth he had been a golden gloves boxer in Montreal. He loved acting but he really loved boxing and I could think of no better way than to honour his memory in the ring.
I had the opportunity to take part in this event last year and had to pull out early on at the time two of my friends were fighting cancer and today only one them is here. I won’t let that happen again.
With your help, I hope to reach my fundraising goal and make a difference.
