BUTTERFLY OF HOPE –WE HONOUR, WE REMEMBER AND WE SUPPORT!
Welcome to our team page. Butterfly of Hope is
so happy to be back for the 2014 season and we are very excited that
you are joining us, or considering joining us, again or for the first
time. You are an integral part of our team. Without you, we could not
take part in this very worthwhile cause. Thank you so much for being
there for us.
SUPPORTING THEM – Diagnosis, surgery, chemotherapy, and/or
radiation, are not processes that anyone wants to ever have to deal
with. But many of our friends, family members and teammates have to do
that. Many of us have had to do that in the past. Unfortunately too many
still will. Butterfly of Hope teammates are here to support each other and you are here to support us.
It is because of your support that we are able to support
cancer research, the funding of state-of –the art equipment, and
survivorship programs at the Princess Margaret. It is because of your
support that we are able to participate in this amazing weekend each
year. It is because of your support that we look forward with HOPE to
ending cancer in our lifetime. Thank you for that support.
HONOURING THEM –We honour our survivors – those, who with your
support, our support and the support of all those who love them, have
come through some very difficult times. Some of them are now enjoying a
cancer free life. Some have learned to live with the disease. Many are
in remission. We honour their spirit, their determination, their
courage, their fortitude and their strength in fighting this disease.
They are our inspiration.
REMEMBERING THEM – Almost all of us has lost loved ones to
cancer. We supported them and we still honour them, but now we have to
hold them in our
memories. Butterfly of Hope has
lost team members; people who walked with us and became our friends.
They walked to fight cancer and now they are gone. Some of them were
young moms. They were all taken far too soon. We have all lost close
friends; people who supported us. Most of us have lost family members.
They are in our hearts. We will always remember them.
Thank you to all of you who are supporting Butterfly of Hope in
our fight to put an end to this terrible group of diseases called,
“Cancer” and for supporting those who are still fighting. Thank you for
helping us to honour our survivors and thank you for remembering those
we have lost and for helping us to remember that we need to keep doing
our part in making cancer history!
