Welcome to My Personal Page
Thank you for choosing to support my fundraising efforts for the Gaetane Harvey Memorial Walk. I started walking the 53 km the first year Lisa formed this walk. At the time I had lost my mom to Cancer and felt that this walk would help with the healing process and it did. This year is more significant to me as I walk to honour my good friend Patti who lost her battle with breast cancer on May 19, 2023. She fought long and hard for the last 3 years. She is my hero. I continue to walk in honor of my mother, my father-in-law, my best friend, my family and especially for my uncle Charles who continues his fight.
This year hits a little different than previous years as I am 53 years of age walking these 53 kms. I feel blessed for every step I get to take on this journey. Gaetane only had 53 years. I never met her but I feel like I know her through her beautiful daughters and family. The funds from this walk help Belleville General Hospital Cancer Care center. I don't live in Belleville and I am not part of their community but location never matters when it comes to money raised to help. As we know Cancer does not discriminate, it doesn't care where you live or if you are 9, 53, 16, 59, 67 or 69. The only way we are going to ever beat it is by raising funds for research and for care.
53 kilometers is a long journey and I couldn't do it without your support. By making a donation you are helping those who continue their fight, those who have survived and honouring loved ones who have passed. From the bottom of my heart I thank you.
