As most of you know, we adopted our son Geoff when he was a baby and he has great relationships with his birth parents. His birth mom Anita is a breast cancer survivor. She was diagnosed ten years ago when her youngest child Chloe was a few months old.

Anita and Chloe, October 2000

Happily Anita's cancer has been in remission since her treatment and I have no doubt that she and many, many others have benefited greatly from the work done by the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

This year Chloe has decided to form her own team for the CIBC Run for the Cure on October 3. She is also planning to shave her own hair and donate it to have a wig made for someone undergoing cancer treatment. I don't know about you but for a ten year old to make that commitment just leaves me gob-smacked (and a little teary-eyed).

I have already made my donation. If you would like to help Chloe's Cancer Crushers with a donation of your own, here are links to Chloes's Run for the Cure pages:

Chloe and countless others thank you.
