my beautiful mom
Welcome to my Underwear Affair Personal Page! As you can see, I've joined BC Cancer Foundation's Underwear Affair - a 10K run / 5K walk to uncover cures for cancers below the waist. It's not only fun, but it fights prostate, colon, and ovarian cancer, among others. I'll be just one of thousands of people gathered on the streets of Vancouver this summer in the biggest Affair this town has ever seen!
What can you do about it? You can donate to me! Don't be shy - it's about giving these devastating cancers some exposure and shedding some light on their cures. So please help me in my effort to raise money for care and research for cancers "down there!"
Why am I doing this you ask? Just about this time last year, we were given the shocking news that my mom was diagnosed with uterine cancer. Previous to this devastating news, cancer in our family was unheard of...this was all new to us, and my mom was ready to fight! In less than 12 short months, she has battled one complete hysterectomy, 6 rounds of chemo, and 25 consecutive rounds of radiation with such amazing grace, beauty, commitment and strength and we are all proud and happy to report that she has successfully kicked cancer in the ass!
Many of you have met my mom, and I think you would agree she is a pretty remarkable lady. In honour of her strength and her will to continue to fight this terrible disease, and in honour of all the survivors and fighters out there, I am participating in the Underwear Affair and hope you can help by giving generously!
With Love and Hope,
