Monday October 26, 2020
Please help us make this year's Virtual SudburyRocks Marathon 2020 Presented by Ionic Engineering in support of Northern Cancer Foundation one of the best ever
My name is Wendi McBride and this is why I'm participating in the SudburyRocks Race 2020:
I moved to Sudbury in 1997 to begin my career in engineering and to be closer to my boyfriend (now husband), Tim. I knew that Sudbury had the "Cancer Centre", but thankfully, for almost 20 years I had no need to set foot in the door. In 2016, I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and my whole world changed. I can remember first walking into the Cancer Centre, feeling very humbled by the experience, thinking about all of the people who had made it possible for me, by donating to the Cancer Society and the Northern Cancer Foundation. In the 4 years that I have been a patient at the NEOCC, I have never taken for granted the fact that I can access such wonderful doctors, state-of-the-art technologies and cutting edge equipment, in my own community! Over the past 4 years I have been through multiple surgeries, chemotherapy, radiation, undergone countless tests, including a PET scan earlier this year (!) - all right here in Sudbury! I have most recently been diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer, which means I will always be living with cancer. I will be taking medication and having followup appointments for the rest of my life. Now, I call myself, not only a "survivor", but also a "thriver". I am so thankful to be able to enjoy every day and participate in the "Sudbury Rocks" fundraiser in 2020.
I am walking on the IONIC team this year, with my dear friend Christina. Unfortunately, Christina's husband, Steve Matusch, passed away earlier this year from liver cancer. And so, I am walking this year to raise money in honour of Steve, in support of those who are currently patients at the Cancer Centre and those who have yet to walk through those doors.
Thank you for your support and donation to help me meet my fundraising goal for the Northern Cancer Foundation! Our community is stronger because of it.
