Honourable Hero-Team in Training & Pineapple Challenge-Calgary/Prairie Chapter for Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of CanadaRead Now
I am proud to be the honourable hero for both Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada's (LLSC) Team in Training (TNT) -Prairie's Chapter & Pineapple Challenge-Calgary.
I wish all participants good luck in their training & fundraising this year! Without all of you (participants, LLSC staff & volunteers & supporters) I wouldn't be here today.
I hope to represent LLSC-Prairie Chapter/Calgary the best that I can. I want everyone to know without the support from these groups, my family & friends wouldn't have received the support that has touched them knowing a loved one has been diagnosed with a blood cancer. I have seen how each person close to me has dealt with and coped with such devastating news. I thank LLSC for the tremendous fundraising they do and for increasing blood cancer awareness.
I also want to thank everyone who has run for me, helped me fundraise for a charity that is so close to my heart. Since being diagnosed in August 2007, I have accomplished many things. I have continued to run, train & become an NPAA Bikini Competitor. I have started my own nutrition company, JCJNutrition. I've been able to keep my passion for food & nutrition, fitness, watch my nephews grow up & enjoying life with my family & friends at a higher level. Thanks to charities like LLSC Team in Training, Light the Night & the newest addition Pineapple Challenge, I have been able to get back to quality of life.
Thank you everyone & help me support those who are battling blood cancers. Continue to follow me in this journey & this great opportunity with Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada-Praire Chapter/Calgary, AB.
