This is one of my favorite photos of me and my mom!  It was taken in Oct 2005 when I went home to Canada to celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving and to take my mom to her last chemo treatment. It's not obvious from the photo, since she never lost her hair, but when this photo was taken she was living with metastatic breast cancer. We were living in different countries fighting breast cancer at the same time. The following summer, a year after my diagnosis, my mom passed away.  A few days before she died we were talking and she said that she knew that me and my sisters were going to be ok.  The next day we had to move her into hospice and a few days later at the age of 69 she died peacefully in her sleep.

My mom was the strongest woman I have ever known.  She never complained about being ill, she supported me during my illness, and no matter how bad things got she was always smiling.  So I walk for her and for women who are fighting this disease in the hope that one day we will have a cure.  

Thank you!
