tears of joy

It doesn’t take much to bring me to tears any more. Good news with breast cancer research certainly does it every time.

Headline: Canadian Researchers Make Breast Cancer Breakthrough

This part of the Globe and Mail story stands out for me:

A major portion of the money used to fund the research came from the B.C. Cancer Foundation’s Weekend to End Breast Cancer walk, as well as donations raised across the province during the annual breast-cancer walk over the past six years. Funding also came from other groups, including the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

Three years ago when I was diagnosed, I was told I couldn’t have been diagnosed in a better part of the country, that B.C. was cutting edge in research and treatment. I believed it and now I see it.

Thank you. Thank you. A thousand thank yous to you for your support for breast cancer research.
