Shave for the Brave 2019 - Shave for the Brave 2019
   
Welcome to Marilyn Blundon's page

Welcome to my online fundraising page!

This year I am participating in the Shave for the Brave with my Deloitte co-workers. Please support me! 

This cause is very important to me on a personal level. March 2018 my cousin Mallory lost her two year battle with Gastric cancer (Adenocarcinoma) at the young age of 28.

Mallory spent her primary and elementary school years in Newfoundland. At the time I was in my early 20’s and Mallory was my little shadow. When Mallory was in her early teens she moved to British Columbia but always considered Newfoundland home.

During Mallory's cancer journey, YACC became a huge supporter to both her and her husband, Aaron. Mallory and Aaron were able to attend a number of YACC events that allowed them to connect with people and other couples across Canada going through the same journey. A year after Mallory's diagnosis, YACC held it's annual national conference in Newfoundland. Donations raised by YACC events like Shave for the Brave, gave Mallory and Aaron the opportunity to come home. It was a time well cherished by all.

Mallory passed away on March 12, 2018 leaving behind her husband, Aaron, and three young children, ages 2, 4 and 7. 

So you ask…how am I participating?  I am shaving my head! I want to pay it forward to other young cancer warriors in honor of Mallory and other family and friends who have had and are currently being challenged by cancer.

My goal is to raise $500 but I can’t do it without your help so please join me in raising money for a great cause by sponsoring my campaign. Just click on the link below and it will take you to my personal page where you can sponsor me.

Our event will take place on Friday, March 15th, 2019 at our Deloitte office location on 5 Springdale Street at 4:00 pm. All are Welcome!

Your donation to the Shave for the Brave will help Young Adult Cancer Canada (YACC) provide programs to young cancer warriors like Mallory. Over 8,000 young adults are diagnosed with cancer every year in Canada, that’s just over 22/day. Your online donations are made over a secure connection and you will automatically be emailed a tax receipt.
