I had the pleasure of attending the Fight to End Cancer Gala in 2014.  The room was filled with excitement and energy for a great cause.   This was the trigger point for me.  I wanted to take on the personal challenge and do my part with your support and contribute as much as I can and Fight to End Cancer.

I am not a boxer, and I never in this lifetime would have imagined I would step into the ring for a live fight… Here we go!

This fight for me is personal.  I lost my Mum to cancer 5yrs ago.   She was a determined and strong woman.  After finding out she had a brain tumour she fought the cancer for 10yrs.  There was never a moment I can recall where she let us see her weakness in the fight… to her this was not an option.

Most recently, My sister was diagnosed with cervical cancer.  She is young, a wife, and a mother to two young girls and her fight with cancer was on.  We are thankful she had the proper guidance from her team of doctors and surgeons.  Through her strength, determination and ongoing support from our family and friends she is cancer free today.

I am participating in the 4th 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!

The Princess Margaret is one of the top 5 Cancer Research Centres in the world and an international leader in the delivery of Personalized Cancer Medicine.

With your help, I hope to reach my fundraising goal and make a difference.

Many thanks!
