Matt Attack

Description

Hi everyone!

As some of you may or may not know, September is a pretty important month when it comes to shedding public awareness for blood cancers.

Earlier this summer, one of Matthew’s doctors approached me and asked if I wanted to be part of the committee for the Cycling for a cure event, for the Maisonneuve-Rosemont Hospital Research Center, which raises money for Cellular Therapy Research. This cause is directly related to the immunotherapy treatments that saved Matt’s life once and goes directly to a team of doctors, many of whom treated Matt throughout the last 3 years. It was a no brainer. I accepted the offer right away and started helping in any way I could for this incredible cause.

This year’s Cycling for a cure, is in Matthew’s honor. It is in honor of the incredible awareness he brought on to Cellular therapy and its need in Canada. In honor of the role he played in the large grant they received last year, for immunotherapy treatments. In honor of how incredibly hard he fought. In honor of how kind hearted he was to help other patients in similar situations, all the while battling his own disease. Matt and I took pride in doing all of this together and I promised I would never stop fighting and continue the legacy we had started.

“I was the face of the therapy, the third slide of the PowerPoint presentation, and the extra boost the presenters needed to convince the panel how important this research actually was. I’ve never been so proud of being a part of something so important.” - Matt

Last year, Matt was actually supposed to participate in this biking fundraiser. He began to exercise very regularly in preparation for it, but unfortunately relapsed before he was able to participate.

This year, I hope that you will join our Matt Attack team, and that we can make him proud together, by raising money and by winning a couple of the biking races throughout the day (we all know how competitive he sometimes got ;) )! Take your bike out and join us on September 30th for a great day spent outdoors at circuit Gilles Villeneuve !

Together we can help save lives.

Here’s the link to my page where you can give as little or as much as you can. Anything will make a difference in accelerating the whole process to get these much-needed therapies to Maisonneuve-Rosemont Hospital.
