As a current science student at Western University, life has just started for me. However, that does not mean I don’t understand the various challenges life throws, in which we endure and come out stronger than before.

Like the saying, “Life is full of ups and downs”, there are many downs in which we sometimes need that extra support. We need inspiration, hope, and a wonderful support system to help us through these difficult times. Cancer and its treatment are not different and not easy to face alone; they are emotional and wearing times.

As part of the Annie Parker Foundation, I want to give back to the community and support cancer patients, survivors and previvors, along with their families. It’s always an honour to listen to everyone’s stories and different perspectives and be of support in any way possible while being able to continue to empower women and men.

In the past, I have volunteered with kids and animals. Currently, I am a part of another organization that also empowers women, but in a different setting. I believe everyone deserves the support they need and have the ability to feel strong and confident wherever they go. I am glad to be a part of a wonderful foundation where I can continue to spread hope and love.
