On November 15th, my mother Catherine and I will be participating in Lymphoma Canada’s second annual fundraising event - take to the mat, the Great Yoga and Wellness event. Take it to the mat is presented with a host of wellness and yoga gurus, and all participants have the option to join either a 108 minute yoga class or 108 minute meditation workshop. We have decided to team up with Lymphoma Canada for a second year because it connects with many of the principles that our TQS Transformation initiative strives to promote.
It has now been nearly ten years since my diagnosis with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. For me, this event is a way of celebrating being in good health. As I reflect upon some of my darkest moments, I know that I would not have managed to overcome such experiences without the help and support from many of you. For that, I am forever grateful. It is in this thought that I recognize that there are many people who now find themselves in similar places as I once experienced, so I have made it a goal of mine to continue to raise awareness and support for them.
We are asking you to join with us in the next part of the journey as we work to raise funds for Lymphoma Canada. It is our hope that the funds raised through take it to the mat will assist the more than 100,000 Canadians and their families living with Lymphoma through, education research and support. Lymphoma Canada is the only national organization solely dedicated to Canadians affected by lymphoma: Hodgkin lymphoma, non-Hodgkin lymphoma & CLL. Lymphoma is the number one cancer in young adults between the ages 18 and 39 and Hodgkin lymphoma is on the rise.
We understand that everyone is inundated with fundraising requests for many worthy causes, so we appreciate any support you may offer.
