Welcome to My Personal Page
Each year, Wayne and I join the "Friends on a Mission" team to support care of cancer patients at Juravinski Hospital and Cancer Centre (JHCC).
As you know, Wayne has been a patient at Juravinski Hospital for the past 5 years. After completing his treatments, Wayne has continued to see his doctor 3 times a year and is very appreciative of the regular check-ups. Because of the excellent care from the staff at Juravinski, Wayne is feeling well.
This year, we would like to dedicate our walk in memory of our friend, Ricky Pugliese. Ricky passed away on August 18, 2020 due to pancreatic cancer. He was part of a Waterpolo dynasty in Hamilton. He was captain of the HAWPC Senior Team that won Gold Medals at Canadian National Championships an astounding ten times!!! He also represented Canada in International competitions which included two Olympic Games. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
Because of COVID 19, the Cancer Walk will occur on an individual basis. We are walking in early October.
The monies raised go toward highest priority needs for Juravinski. In the past several years, funds have been used for the redevelopment of clinical spaces to enable mental health services for those dealing with cancer and enhancements to the RESSCU unit which offers urgent care to cancer patients.
At this time, fundraising is extremely important as COVID has had an incredible impact on the hospital's ability to raise funds. Your consideration and support are key to continued support for cancer patients at Juravinski.
Many thanks....and take care,
Nancy and Wayne
