Message from Charity

Thank you for sponsoring one of our enthusiastic participants in the 20th annual Walk/Run/Wheel for Colorectal Cancer Awareness. We are grateful for your generosity and appreciate your support of our work at Wellwood, where we provide a wide range of free support programs to help people to live well with cancer.

My Message

 

On Sunday October 14 my family (my kids, hubby, sisters, brother-in-laws, nieces, nephews, great nieces/nephews, cousins and friends) will either be walking or running in a 5km/10km walk at McMaster University for Wellwood which is a community based, non-profit organization which provides information, supportive care programs and peer support to people who have received a diagnosis of cancer, their families and caregivers, and healthcare providers.

 

As many of you know, my brother-in-law who passed away in 2012 – he was diagnosed that year on the Friday of Thanksgiving - with pancreatic cancer and passed away December 19th – a very short bout as the cancer spread rapidly (including to his colon).  Craig ran the Wellwood before his diagnosis and now we have assembled a pretty respectable “Team Boyle” and run in his name.  A few people have asked me if they could sponsor me and I hate canvassing for donations as I know we are all bombarded with many, many requests from all kinds of organizations but Wellwood is a fantastic organization doing great work with pretty limited funds.
