Please help Denise make colorectal cancer history.
Last summer, in early July, her dad my husbands uncle and God-Father was diagnosed with colorectal cancer. It was stage 4, meaning it had metastisized and was terminal. Her beautiful dad died just six weeks later. Early detection could have caught the tumour sooner and possibly saved Her dad's life.
In September 2013, She will be climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa to raise awareness and funds for colorectal cancer.
A few facts:
Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in Canada. Canada's Movember campaign for prostate cancer raised nearly $40 million last year, topping the world's participating countries in donations. The pink ribbon is a widely recognized symbol in the fight against breast cancer. The Run for the Cure campaign, alone, raises over $30 million each year. By contrast, less than $2 million is raised each year for colorectal cancer.
Please help her reach her fundraising goal
All money that is fundraised through her Kili Climb campaign will go directly to the Canadian Cancer Society-She is funding the trip and the climb on her own. And she has designated all funds raised throughout her campaign to go directly to colorectal cancer research and programs.
for your support. Every pledge helps!
