I turned the big 4-0 this year, so in attempt to cling onto my youth I am joining the 2017 Fight To End Cancer team. Over the next 6 months I will be training to compete in my first, and probably only, boxing match on May 27th. In addition to stepping into the ring, I will be raising money for The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation, one of the top Cancer fighting facilities in the world. Most of us don't need to look too far outside of our circles to find someone we know or love who has been impacted by cancer. It's scary and can be incredibly destructive to those affected by it. As a father...

Hi Friends, I am very proud to be a part of the 6th Annual Fight to End Cancer in support of the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.  On Saturday May 27th, 2017 I will be stepping into the ring to compete in a charity boxing match with the goal of raising a lot of money to make a difference in the real fight.  The Fight to End Cancer. Cancer has touched all of us in some shape or form.  The promise of ending all cancers is certainly a cause worth taking a few lumps for and hopefully giving a few too ;-).  As the father of two amazing young girls I am particularly motivated by the promise...

Dear Friends, I am participating in the 6th 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 of curing cancer. We have all had someone in our life affected by this disease. I fight for the survivors. They that have a larger impact in our lives than we realize. How they change you for the better. Force you beyond your comfort zone. A shoulder to lean on and a kick in the ass when required. And without them knowing, inspire you to take action and risk bigger than you ever thought possible. Who...

On May 27th, 2017 I will be stepping into the ring, participating in the 6th Annual Fight to End Cancer.  This amazing event raises research dollars in support of The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation. The Princess Margaret is one of the top 5 Cancer Research Centres in the world and an international leader in the delivery of Personalized Cancer Medicine.  With your help the Foundation can move a little closer to reaching its ultimate goal - To Conquer Cancer In Our Lifetime!  Like most, if not all of you, my life has been touched by Cancer.  I have felt frustration and helplessness...

Hello Friends, Family and Supporters, Starting January 2017, I will be spending 6 months training and raising money in support of The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation by participating in the 6th Annual Fight to End Cancer charity boxing event. Every day, we are all affected by cancer in some way. Whether it's a close friend or family member, or an acquaintance in our lives, we all have to face the wrenching effects of cancer - but that doesn't mean we have to face it alone. With your donations and support I'm committed to reaching my goal of $20,000, but your dollars and efforts aren't...

My name is Brandon Glynn, and I could not feel more honoured to be selected to represent and support The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation in its 6th annual Fight to End Cancer. Like so many, my life, and that of my family's, have been directly affected by cancer. Sadly, we can all share stories of how our lives have been impacted, but with ongoing research and support like what is offered to patients by Princess Margaret Hospital, I believe we can achieve the ultimate goal of finding a cure. To do this, they need assistance in raising both awareness and money. Taking part in this is the...

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...

Mark Lockhart.  That’s the latest name I’m putting on the face of cancer. He died last year after a one-year battle with cancer at the age of 47.  His death affected a whole community. He was a single father of 2 boys.  And a lifelong friend to those lucky enough to have been part of his life. Mark is, unfortunately, only the most recent in a too-long list of cancer victims.  When I asked friends and colleagues how cancer had touched them, every single person had a story. Some tragic, some inspiring- all deeply felt.  That’s why I’m participating in the 6th Annual Fight to End...

To my Friends, Family and Colleagues, I am deeply honored to announce that I have been selected to fight in the 2017 Fight to End Cancer in support of The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation. While my participation in this event includes training and boxing, more importantly I will be actively and persistently raising funds for cancer research. The ultimate goal of this venture is To Conquer Cancer In Our Lifetime! When I step into the ring on May 27, 2017 I will be fighting in the memory of Dr. Lionel Everett Mcleod. Dr. Mcleod was not only a medical researcher of world renown, a Markle Scholar...
