Anyone who knows me, understands that I’m not one for standing idle and watching things happen around me. That faith and compassion compels me to help those in need and care for everything and everyone, especially those less fortunate. I believe that if we all make an effort, we can affect change and make a difference. Yet, as I write this I’m reminded time after time of a feeling of fear and helplessness each and every time someone I loved and cared for told me they had cancer. Can’t even imagine how they must have felt being told they have it. To make it real, I started writing a...

Hello Friends, Family and Supporters, Those of you who me know that I love to take on any physical challenge. Its always been on my bucket list to step into the boxing ring and do an amateur fight.  This is about to get very real.  However, this fight isn’t about me.  I will be fighting for everyone who has been touched by cancer, and who are in a fight for their life every minute and every second of their day. Unfortunately, Cancer Does Not Discriminate, and in one form or another, we have all been affected by it. I will be right there fighting along side those fighting for hope, strength...

On Saturday, June 2, 2018, I will be stepping out of my comfort zone and into a ring to compete in a charity boxing match in support of the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation. Fight to End Cancer is an event unlike any other.  Myself, along with my #FTEC2018 teammates, will commit endless hours and energy for the next seven months to train as amateur boxers for this life-changing event. So in June 2018, I will be putting on my boxing gloves and stepping into the ring to FIGHT BACK against cancer. I have a very personal interest in the goal of this event, having lost my father to cancer...

I am beyond thrilled that I’ve been selected to be part of #FTEC2018’s fight team. I will be spending the next 7 months training with 9 other ‘non-boxing professionals’ – and on June 2, 2018 I will be stepping into the ring to ‘literally’ fight to end cancer. In June of 2016, my mother Iris Collins – one of the most vibrant, healthy, amazing and giving people I have ever known - was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, and within 10 weeks she was gone.  I am fighting for her – as well as for the countless others I know who have been impacted by this terrible disease. Anyone...

My name is Kim Hamill.  I’ve never been punched in the face – but that’s about to change. On May 27, 2017 I will step in the boxing ring to participate in the 6th Annual Fight to End Cancer in support of the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation. In one form or another, we have all been affected by cancer.  I feel privileged to be a part of this fight and know that the next seven months will be demanding, both physically and mentally.  My fight pales in comparison to the real fight a person diagnosed with cancer faces every second, of every day.  I’m committed to providing hope and...

Dear Friends and Family, I am honoured to be participating in the 6th Annual Fight to End Cancer in support of The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation. I have a very personal interest in the goal of this event: to raise funds for cancer research at PMH.  As many of you are aware, I am a cancer survivor.   In 2004, when I was six months pregnant with our third child, I received my diagnosis of advanced thyroid cancer. I was told I needed immediate surgery to remove the tumour and affected lymph nodes, and that treatment would follow promptly after my baby’s birth.   Traces of the shock...

Dear Friends and Family I am participating in the 5th Annual Fight to End Cancer in support of The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation. I am raising research dollars – with a vision of reaching the ultimate goal – To Conquer Cancer In Our Lifetime! Fighting to end cancer is of interest to me because I have lost too many family members to it. Most recently my aunt passed away from breast cancer, and prior to that I lost my sister just over 12 years ago. She had the same type of cancer as Terry Fox. I want to be able to do my part to make a difference and generate funds so that fewer and...

I am participating in the 4th Annual Fight to End Cancer benefiting The Princess Margaret. For those of you who know me, I am sure you could NOT picture me stepping into the ring, in front of hundreds of people, punching someone.... but I'm doing it! I am physically and figuratively fighting for those that can't. Working at The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation, I am overwhelmed with the number of stories I hear everyday about CANCER. Some are terrible and devastating and make me want to work that much harder everyday, so I don't have to hear anything like them again. On the other hand...

I am participating in the 4th Annual Fight to End Cancer in support of The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation. I am raising research dollars - with a vision of reaching the ultimate goal - To Conquer Cancer In Our Lifetime! In the spring, my other half expressed his desire to apply to be one of the fighters for FTEC 2015 - naturally I was supportive and pretty quickly decided I wanted to go down the road together.  Several months later I have no doubt that this journey will be one of the most physically and emotionally demanding to date, but also the most rewarding. Cancer has affected...

One very small effort to advance the fight to find a cure for cancer in our lifetime –The Fight to End Cancer is a chance to do just that, and I am honoured to have this opportunity. I have watched too many people I dearly love fight cancer. They have faced it head on, with grace and courage. They are the true fighters. As I train, and the challenge gets tougher, those who have battled cancer – family, friends and colleagues – are in my thoughts. It is their strength, as they endure each step of their journey, that truly inspires me to push on. So for all those I care so deeply about...

The Fight to End Cancer means a chance to fight for all the memories that still need to be made. My daughter will never be able to look into her grandmother’s eyes and see her own, as cancer stole Judith Ramsay from us before they could ever meet. As we watch a close friend battling this disease today, I realize how hard we all must fight to protect the memories that are still to come. It is such a privilege to wake up with a healthy body every day that I wanted to put it to good use for a great cause. - Dawn Ramsay-Brown
