I am a 44 year old female.
I am co-owner of Grand River Kayak.
I have breast cancer.
Did you know that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime?
That’s a scary statistic.
I was diagnosed in March 2016 and I am currently undergoing treatment at Hamilton’s Juravinski Cancer Center. I started chemotherapy at the beginning of May, and will need surgery and radiation as well.
This diagnosis will greatly affect the nature of our business this season.
You may or may not see me around.
When you do see me, I will look different, and may interact differently, too.
But I am still me.
Feel free to say "Hi!", and drop off fresh fruits or vegetables. I can always use them to juice!
Stand Up Paddleboarding is my FAVORITE sport! Since the first time I got on a board, it was LOVE AT FIRST STROKE! I now do lessons, run tours and enjoy teaching our SUP Yoga classes. I won't be doing that this summer but I will be next season!!! Maybe I'll even dabble in Race SUP??
What we have done this season is offer you an opportunity to “Win an SUP Package” and support a good cause!!
One of the things I did a couple of years ago, was pose nude with an amazing group of ladies in support of “By the Willow” Hospice Day Away Program.
Little did I know that I would eventually personally partake in this program myself.
It has been so helpful to have the support of these wonderful people who run the program and those that are there participating because of their own life threatening/altering conditions.
The proceeds of this package will be donated to “By the Willow” to help them run this program.
I wanted to make sure that when I chose an organization to donate money to, that I would see the benefit and impact that it would provide.
