Two heads are always better than one…Especially when we’re showing kids fighting cancer that they are not alone! On Mar 19th @sfuclubforthecure is hosting their 8th annual Balding for Dollars event @simonfraseru. We’re asking courageous people to sign up to cut/shave their heads in support of cancer warriors. Some warriors from Children’s hospital will even be there to help you stay brave through the cut. We invite you to join us in making a difference in the lives of these kids. Please check out our website for more event information http://ow.ly/skDT2 If you would like to sign up or donate visit http://ow.ly/skDZ5 Every little bit helps! All proceeds go to the Balding for Dollars Organization in support of the oncology at BC Children’s Hospital. #sfubfd2014 #curekidscancer #bcch #baldingfordollars #fightforacure #cancerwarriors #sfu #baldisbeautiful #wigsforkids
Remember Remember the fifth of November…This is one of my favourite movies for so many reasons but the main reason is because it inspires me like no other movie can. It reminds me that one person has the power to change the world. That one idea can be the spark of a revolution. We all know that things need to change. We spend our days talking about the change that needs to happen. This movie reminds me that it takes more than words to make a difference. It takes actions, courage, and a passion to make that change. “We are told to remember the idea, not the man, because a man can fail. He can be caught, he can be killed and forgotten, but 400 years later, an idea can still change the world.” So today take some time to think and I have no doubt that you can bring forth an idea that can change history. All you need to do is have the courage to think it. #rememberthefifthofnovember #guyfawkesday #changetheworld #makeadifference #vforvendetta #v

"In every community, there is work to be done. In every nation, there are wounds to heal. In every heart, there is the power to do it." ~ Be the change you wish to see in the world. ~ Yesterday I had the incredible privilege of sharing my story at Brookswood Secondary School and had the honor of meeting some pretty amazing students afterwards. I was so impressed by them. I can’t wait to see how they’re going to make a difference in the world. I know they are destined to do great things. Just so thankful to have had this opportunity to be apart of it. #makeadifference #changetheworld #loveyourlife #brookswoodsecondaryschool #wedefinestrength

Today has been one of the most incredible days of my life. I had previously posted that I had won an award at my university. That award was for someone who had shown courage in the face of adversity. This is such an honor and I am so humbled. What makes today special is that I received this award today and I was blessed to have the opportunity to share some words with my fellow students to inspire them as they participated in the Terry Fox Run. I wanted to share part of my speech with all of you…. “I would not be here today without people like you, people who recognize that fighting something as big as cancer isn’t a job for one person but a Cause for the Entire Community! Courage is so contagious! Now go #makeadifference in the world. On behalf of cancer warriors out there thank you. Thank you for fighting alongside us and for helping make ours and Terry’s dream of living in a cancer free world possible!” Please help me to raise awareness and advocate for cancer warriors throughout the world. #changeiscoming and we all need to be apart of it! ❤
If you want to see strength, courage, and bravery, go visit the oncology clinic at Children’s Hospital. Despite a diagnosis of cancer those children have the brightest smiles. Although many are too young to understand their diagnosis, even more of them have been forced to grow up too quickly and can often be seen comforting their parents when things get really tough. This is why I feel I have no right to complain about things. These kids live the best they can, fighting as hard as they can and bring joy to everyone they come in contact with. This month has been set apart so we as a nation can band together and fight this monster. Please let’s make sure it doesn’t take anymore of our angels. Support a childhood cancer initiative in your area. You’ll never know how hard it is to live it until you’ve been there. I pray to god that you never will be. #help #endchildhoodcancer #bcccpa #baldingfordollars #bcch #curecancer #childhoodcancer #cancersurvivors #cancerwarriors #angels #fightforacure #fightforlife #stupidcancer #willtosurvive #strength #wedefinestrength #hope #cure #inspire #quote
I can still remember waking up on this morning years ago with a heavy feeling in my stomach. The news was on in our kitchen and my family and I watched as that unimaginable scene unfolded. This was as close as I would ever be to war. That morning and those images still haunt me to this day. It was such a terrible event and let us never forget it. Today take a moment of silence for those who’s lives were ripped from them without any warning. Also for those heroic men and women who risked their lives to protect and save others. Lest We Forget…..
