I believe you need to put back in, more than you take out. I have tried to live this philosophy by donating my time and money. I hope my example inspires others to put give more to the global pot than they take. I have wanted to make a significant difference. I know I have the network and the planning skills to do something really big but I couldn't find the right inspiration to bring this network together in a big way.
On May 7th, 2009 I found the inspiration when I was told I had incurable cancer.
If I could choose a different way to inspire people, I would. I do believe that you are never given anything that you can’t handle. I may not have chosen this, but I do choose to use it to inspire positive change.
On May 7th I was given details on my treatment which includes chemo and radiation. My chemo therapy drugs alone will cost $50,000 and all my treatment is covered. I am extremely grateful that I can take these resources out. I am now focused on a target to help me give back to the pot My pot is raising money for the Alberta Cancer Foundation (ACF) – Brain Specific Research Trials and Grants - Every dollar raised is put into research that helps me survive “incurable” cancer.
My survivor story will be long. Treatment will take years and unfortunately life without cancer is not an option. I know that I am ready for this journey. There is no doubt the journey will bring positive change.
To support this journey I launch the Woloshyn's Warriors Tour - A series of fundraising events, that will raise money for ACF – Brain Specific Research Trials and Grants.
The Tour will include different fundraising activities run by me and you. For complete details on the Tour please visit www.alysonwoloshyn.com and click on "Support Alyson". My contact information can also be found at this website.
