Last year I was wearing stilettos, frequenting happy hours and making the most of my early 20s. I was doing what I wanted with my time, although I didn’t often stop to think about that as a lucky thing. You could say my journey to Haymakers was serendipitous and at the same time maybe just random or destined all at once.
I know I’m inspired by those I love that have lost the fight to cancer and those that continue to fight it, some publically and others behind closed doors. It’s not just those diagnosed that have to fight, but their family and friends who become warriors too. Every day I’m inspired by the strength of my Aunt Shelia, TB & MB, Moe, Michelle, Rachel, Nick and so many others. I know now that I am beyond lucky to have thechoice of what to do with my time.
The reason the Haymaker’s charity boxing tournament started was to give people an opportunity to support those who don't get that same choice about whether or not they want to fight. I’m fighting for all these people I love so we can help make sure everyone gets to make a choice in the future. In the words of the Belle’s please help us “KO Cancer!”
