FORMER SPIN PARTICIPANT
“In 2016, I was diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma - breast cancer. As shocking and upsetting as it was, I felt a sense of relief knowing that I would be in the hands of world experts. I was referred to the breast clinic at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre which is one of the largest, most comprehensive of its kind here in Canada. Today I am cancer free.
I spin because it was instrumental in my recovery. After surgery and treatment there were a lot of restrictions on what I could and couldn’t do and spinning was one thing that made me feel whole again. Events like these are so important to support cancer research at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. Given how ancillary spinning was in my recovery there was just no way I couldn’t support the hospital that helped save my life.“
