Sylvie is doing good. We had quite a scare last month when she was hospitalized with double pneumonia caused by an infection that specifically targets immuno-compromised individuals like chemo patients.
But we're back on track and chemo has restarted.
Speaking of surviving cancer, this Saturday, June 1st, is National Cancer Survivors Day. So I wanted to let you know about something exciting I'm doing on that day.
And I need your help…
In support of my wife and her ongoing battle, as well as for the memory of my mother, I am very excited to tell you that I am participating in a walkathon on June 1, 2013 benefiting the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation.
It's called “EPIC WALK For Women's Cancers.”
On that day, to help celebrate National Cancer Survivors Day, I will be going the distance in the fight for cancer survivorship by taking part in the first ever EPIC WALK for women's cancers.
It is truly a walk of epic proportions! In just one day, I will be trekking the 28km (17 miles) stretch between the Queensway Carleton Hospital and the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation's Cancer Survivorship Centre.
In its inaugural year, the EPIC WALK will raise important and life-saving funds for women's cancers, with 100% of funds raised by participants remaining in our community to improve regional cancer services.
Join me and together we can make a difference in the lives of women living with cancer. You can donate as little as $5. But can you spare $10? $25? Anything you offer matters.
Every. Single. Cent. Matters.

P.S.: If you want to cheer me on, the schedule is listed on the link on the left titled “Event Information” where there will be a participant cheering line on Sparks Street in Ottawa.
