In late 2020, my dad was diagnosed with cancer. The Princess Margaret staff (nurses, doctors, admin) were incredible during his diagnosis, treatment and recovery from late 2020 to his all clear result from his doctors at the end of May 2021. A very difficult feat during the height of the Covid pandemic in Ontario. I am raising funds to thank the amazing work Princess Margaret did for my dad, other loved ones, and continue to do!
As I'm living in the UK and completing the half marathon here, I am also raising money for Cancer Research UK (https://www.cancerresearchuk.org/)!
I have only just picked up running during early 2021 and with my asthma I've always shied away from it, and so this is a HUGE feat for me personally! I'm very excited to be able to accomplish this for an incredible cause!
