Welcome Francine's Personal Page
The CRS Challenge is an activity designed to raise awareness about cancer research, which will affect 2 out of 5 people in their lifetime.
Medical breakthroughs have allowed patients to heal, be better cared for and believe in a possible future. And in the near future, stem cell research, the genomic revolution, and many other advances will further increase healing opportunities.
Having been diagnosed with this disease more than 15 years ago, my involvement with the CBC is self-evident.
I would like to introduce to you my hero; Marcelle Nadon, yes, my sister. She was diagnosed with lung cancer last fall. Marcelle is a wonderful woman; she had three beautiful and kind sons; Louis, Mario and Steve. Marcelle a fighter, a ball of energy. Marcelle, just like my mother was; she only sees the bright side of things, she has a positive outlook on everything that happens to her…even now ...
It turns out that one of my nieces, Joanne, who lives exactly the same ordeal and just like Marcelle, Joanne envisions the future ... one day at a time, without complaint, without feeling sorry for herself, without resentment or bitterness. In honor of Marcelle, Joanne and all those who are going through these difficult times, on April 13, 2019, I set out to conquer the Everest Base Camp in Nepal ... This will be my fourth challenge in the name of the CRS. I will walk during 11 days, 6 to 9 hours a day. This challenge is of advanced level. But I am motivated, determined and brought forward by what my loved ones and all those I do not know who are in a similar situation.
In addition to the physical challenge, I have a specific financial goal: to accumulate $ 14,000 by January 2019. That's why I'm asking for your support, regardless of the amount. Note that a tax receipt will be issued for donations of $ 20 or more.
In my name and on behalf of all those who are touched, near or far, by this horrific disease,
I thank you,
