Today at the Manitoba Legislative Building, we witnessed the passing of Bill 209.
MANY local cancer families were in attendance and applauded the passing of Bill 209 — The Childhood Cancer Awareness Month Act in Manitoba.
Marking September as a golden month now in Manitoba!
Our children are important, and it fills my heart to know we are now supported by our own government.
Thank you to Dana Wood, who has been speaking to her MLA in Lac du Bonnet regarding this idea. Dana still fights for children and families battling cancer, even with a broken heart. Her beautiful daughter Darah fought valiantly against Ewing’s Sarcoma, but died in 2013. Childhood cancer is NOT rare!
Thank you to MLA Wayne Ewasko of Lac du Bonnet for listening to Dana’s story and moving forward to ensuring this bill was not only heard but passed.
You can see Wayne on the far right. And I (Suzanne) am, obviously, standing tall behind Madox’s photo. [apologies voir the poor photo quality]
We advocate everyday for awareness and more funding towards childhood cancer. Before everyone goes pink for October we should encourage everyone to GO GOLD for children!
We miss Madox everyday and will always continue this fight.
Help us bring awareness and help us fight!
We have pretty awesome Warriors fighting DIPG with us!
Ericka Small is a sweet young lady who donated her First Communion money to Madox’s Warriors. Proof there are beautiful people in all religions.
We are touched by your love and kindness Ericka. Thank you
