Team CanCervive Pub Night for “Light The Night Ottawa”

Team CanCervive Pub Night for “Light The Night Ottawa”

  • Delicious

My step sister Kim was diagnosed with Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma a few years ago, and has been fighting the fight against cancer ever since. Most recently, she had to undergo a bone marrow transplant this past winter.  Now, more than six months post-transplant Kim is feeling better each and every day and her doctors are very happy with her recovery!  She still has a long  journey ahead of her but so far so good, and she is one of the most optimistic people I know! :)

Three years ago Kim formed a team in the first “Light the Night” 5k walk in Ottawa. I joined Team CanCervive to walk in support of Kim then, and again last year. This year, the third year, our team, Team CanCervive is set to walk the 5k again in downtown Ottawa on Saturday October 13th. Last year in an attempt to raise some funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada, Kim’s sister in law organized a ‘pub night’ in Kim’s honour as she was too ill to undertake this big fundraising task herself.

    The world is such a small place when you think of it, and the fight against cancer touches us all. Amazing that your family participates in the Light the Night, and as you know so does ours. I truly wish your sister continued progress in her fight - this illness has taken too many loved ones already. Good luck with your event this evening.
