Our Hearts are In It
As the Executive Director of East Kootenay Foundation for Health, I have witnessed many amazing moments over the past seven years and perhaps not one so moving as with our latest campaign. The fundraising drive for the A Clear View ~ a digital mammography campaign is not just about the $1 million financial goal; it will also take us all on a journey of lives impacted by breast cancer.
Who better can speak about the moment when you hear a suspected diagnosis, face the challenge of biopsy square on or those who must go further into the treatment to fight the beast that we know as breast cancer? Simply answered, a breast cancer survivor.
As EKFH prepared for the launch of this much needed campaign, my life was forever changed by some very courageous women ~ Sue, Sheila, Heather, Elva, Julie, Evelyn and Lisey who have taken it upon themselves to make a difference not only through their support of the A Clear View campaign but for their willingness and bravery in telling their stories.
As you read about their journey, I hope that their words of inspiration will encourage and move you to also join in the fight against breast cancer.
