A few appointments ago, my oncologist asked if I’d be willing to speak at a fundraiser for clinical trials. I agreed to consider it, and a few conversations later this was on the news:
I’m grateful to Patricia Boal, Bryan the camera operator, and the CTV news team for doing such a great job telling the story.
The breakfast is next month. I’m feeling a bit nervous, but I said yes for a number of good reasons and I’m glad I’m doing it. I hope my story will encourage and bring hope to others. I also hope it helps raise funds which will make a difference for many.
I dream of the day IV chemotherapy will be obsolete and cancer will be cured by a few weeks of daily pills with insignificant side effects. I hope it happens in my lifetime!
