My name is Jason Brydges and I’m honored to be participating in the 4th annual Fight to End Cancer for the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.
Like so many, my life, and that of my family, has been directly affected by cancer. A number of years ago I lost both my grandfathers to pancreatic cancer and more recently watched my mother fight, and ultimately beat, her cancer with the help of Princess Margaret Hospital. Additionally, my wife lost a friend to cervical cancer when she was only 28. Sadly, we could all share stories of how our lives have been impacted, but with ongoing research and support like what is offered to patients by Princess Margaret Hospital I believe we can achieve the ultimate goal of finding a cure. To do this however they need assistance in raising both awareness and money.
I’ve always been a fan of boxing and admire the dedication these athletes have in the preparation to meet and achieve their goals. I never imagined I’d be preparing for such an event but feel privileged to be part of such a worthwhile cause.
To steal a quote from the great Mohamed Ali:
“I done wrestled with an alligator, I done tussled with a whale, only last week I murdered a rock, injured a stone, hospitalized a brick. I’m so mean I make (Cancer) sick.”
Please help and donate to such a worthwhile cause.
