A weekend of hope...

As so many people know, this weekend is The Weekend to End Breast Cancer® in Canada, organized by the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation.

This June 6-7, 2009 thousands of women and men will be participating in this special event walking 60 kilometres to support breast cancer and other women's cancers research, and services through the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation.

According to the National Cancer Institute of Canada, approximately 21,100 Canadian women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year, and about 5,400 will die from the disease. And there are many other cancers that also affect women. That's why they are walking so far, to do something bold about breast cancer and other women's cancers.

One of my best friends is participating in this incredible adventure and It will be amazing if you would share this information and support them in their fundraising efforts.

If you or your friends are interested in making a donation you can go to the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation website and click on DONATE TODAY link.

Every participant of this event has a personal site to encourage support and receive donations that will go 100% directly to the Fundation, my friend's site is this one: Jeska

As participants we honour lives lost, celebrate survivors, and help raise crucial funds to end breast cancer. It is through the support of people like you that they can ensure that the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation remains a place of hope and caring. I hope to bring an end to breast cancer forever...

I just found some Etsy Shops supporting the research for a cure for breast cancer, so, there are so many ways to help :)
