Raising Money For

Canadian Cancer Society

Donate to Christiana

As many of you know, I signed up to do this fundraiser to support the cancer cause - with nearly 1 in 2 Canadians diagnosed in their lifetime, almost all of us are affected so how could I not participate?

That all changed when on January 28, my dad was diagnosed with leukemia. In fact, everything changed.

Suddenly, my fundraising had a face associated with it. A face that has stood beside me my whole life. A face that now needs my help.

Fundraising has become a huge priority for me in my dad's journey - how else do you help when you feel so helpless?

I've been so lucky to be able to travel back to Winnipeg to be by his side while he undergoes intensive treatments, but I want to do more.

I want to ensure that no daughter, brother, mom or friend ever has to feel the fear, helplessness and worry of a cancer diagnosis.

I want to ensure that my dad's journey is not for nothing - that it is one that will positively impact lives in years to come.

And I want to ensure that my dad knows that he is not alone on this journey - that he has a huge community behind him, working together to propel him forward in this difficult time.

Please consider supporting me in honour of my dad, Chris Mellway, and help me prove that together, we're stronger than cancer.

Thanks for your support. xo
