Doubling Hope 2021 - Fundraiser Celebrating 20 Years of Beating the Odds

Thank you for helping us celebrate this significant 20-year milestone of beating cancer in our virtual event - Doubling Hope.

When I was first diagnosed with lymphoma in the spring of 2001, I was told the life expectancy was typically 7-10 years for the type of lymphoma I had. Over the years, I've had two significant recurrences and was also diagnosed with a second form of lymphoma. I've received various treatments, including many months of chemotherapy, years of monoclonal antibodies as well as a stem cell transplant, all at Juravinski Cancer Centre.

During this time, I've been able to celebrate 24 years of marriage with Peter (who has been my rock through all of this), have kids, start a business, travel, enjoy many adventures with family and friends, and work as a volunteer at several cancer charities. None of this would have been possible without the life-saving treatment and care I've received.

I am so grateful to have reached this milestone of doubling the original life expectancy I was given and want to help "double the odds" for other patients as well.

Thank you in advance for supporting this event - your donation, in any amount, is appreciated and will support the Hematology Program at Juravinski Cancer Centre in continuing to provide life-altering treatments to blood cancer patients.

It means the world to me to have your support - at this event and over the 20 years that I've been living with this disease. Thank you!

- Alyssa
