Welcome to the team Charlie’s Angels!
This team was created in 2018, by my wonderful HHS OD family.
To give you some history, my colleagues were used to my emails every summer, asking them to join a September fundraising event for one of our HHS hospitals. However in summer 2018, when Graeme and I were in the midst of the worst, my colleagues decided to switch it up and join the Bright Run, a walk that raises money for Breast Cancer research at the Juravinski Cancer Centre, where I receive my care.
Through events like this, the JCC can fund research projects like the RUBY Study – a study I have been participating in through blood donations and extensive lifestyle surveys, to help identify contributors to breast cancer in young people. Breast cancer research contributes to more advanced care, leading to a better life for patients like me.
Thank you to those contributing and participating in the Bright Run this September.
And thank you to my support system, especially my OD family, who always cheers me on.
