“I am passionate about fighting cancer after losing my dad to mesothelioma. As a volunteer, I will do whatever I can to help fight all forms of cancers. The Canadian Cancer Society is my cancer charity of choice and I am pleased to serve on its national board.”



I want everyone to win their battles like we did. That’s why I’ve left a gift in my will to the Canadian Cancer Society.
