“For me, the fight against cancer is a very personal matter: my eldest brother died of the disease and four of my sisters have survived it. Through my involvement with the Canadian Cancer Society, I hope to contribute to the eradication of cancer and to the enhancement of the quality of life of people living with cancer.”
