Welcome to my personal page and thank you for your support
Held by Catherine Plomp
This May I'm participating in Workout to Conquer Cancer to get moving and support BC Cancer patients! I'm joining people across the province and beyond to move, no matter where we are, every single day of the month.
One in two British Columbians are impacted by cancer. My mom has been fighting cancer for the past 10+ years - first, diagnosed with lymphoma, and a few years later, was diagnosed with breast cancer. The care and treatment she received and continues to receive from BC Cancer has been phenomenal and without these ongoing treatments, she would not have survived for this long.
That's why I've committed to move and raise funds for my mom and all the other patients, survivors and the researchers pushing life-saving innovation forward. This challenge is more than exercise, it's about joining a community who know that together we can go beyond limits to MAKE AN IMPACT FOR THOSE WE LOVE AND HAVE LOVED.
So, as I get ready to sweat my way through May, please show your support by making a donation today.
Thank you for your support!
