Run of Hope for Breast Cancer *LAST WEEKEND TO PLEDGE*

Canadian Deals & Coupons


As I’m sure many of you are aware October is breast cancer month.  What not a lot of you know is that I was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer last August.  Being only 31 and having no family history of the disease it came as quiet a shock to me and my family.  Over the past year I have undergone 8 rounds of chemotherapy, a mastectomy and 20 rounds of radiation.  In addition I am on a pill form of hormone therapy for the next five years.  It has all gone well for me thus far and all my follow up scans have been clean.

What I wanted to bring to your attention today is the Run of Hope that I am participating in.  I am collecting pledges to help raise funds for breast cancer research and for funds to help support families that are going through the disease (this may include such things are supplementing some housing costs when women need to move to another city to access their daily radiation, and covering the very expensive costs of drugs that are not covered by all benefits packages).

This disease doesn’t know age or economic status.  It does care that we have families and dreams for their futures.  All it knows is how to destroy and I for one want to fight back!

If you would like more information on the run or to make a general donation that can be done here.

If you are interested in sponsoring me in the Run of Hope, here is my sponsorship page.

I am currently sitting at 85% of my goal!

Thank you.

    Hi Lisa,

    I sponsored you as soon as I saw the post was up. Although I’ve known about it for a while, seeing it written down again brought tears you my eyes. On behalf of the Smart Canucks team we love you and your story will bring a lot of hope to others.

    Thank you so much Sally and I really appreciate the pledge. There were days that coming to the SC website were what I most looked forward to because it made me forget what was going on for a while. Thank you so much, you have no idea how much it means to me!

    Put in a donation, not as much as I would like for this cause, but every bit helps.

    Sending you well wishes and enjoy the walk!

    Thanks everyone!
    Also I think you all should know that this is NOT the Run for a Cure that has administrative costs. This run is purely volunteer run by my Breast Cancer Support Group and there are no admin costs involved and we know what the money is being used on.

    I had a breast cancer scare earlier this year – fortunately it turned out to be a benign lump. It certainly puts your life into perspective and you decide in a big hurry what matters and what doesn’t. Thanks so much for sharing your story. You are an inspiration to all of us – young and old!

    Gillette Venus on Facebook is donating $50 for each photo that is uploaded with you holding their sign (“In honour of….) Just print it, add a name, and snap a picture of yourself holding the sign. Upload the photo to our wall so we can all share! For each photo we’ll donate $50 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (up to $25,000).

    Yay! You reached your goal!

  14. I want to know far more related to tips on how to utilize this strategy you write about within the post. It seems like a lot of the stuff concerning this issue were touched upon before by others. Anyhow, MY PARTNER AND I without doubt desire you keep up the great job simply because this happens to be a mind-blowing posting
