I am excited to participate in the SHOPPERS LOVE. YOU. Run for Women in Support of Women’s Wellness Programs at Lois Hole Hospital for Women.
Exercise is the best way to manage mental health and thousands across Canada will join me to experience the healing effect of walking or running. Women’s lives are transformed one step at a time. Your donation will bring one woman one step closer to recovery.
Nowadays I have found that many people struggle with mental health problems. I myself experienced a difficult past four years when I became sick and found out that I have two chronic illnesses. At the time my mother was also diagnosed with breast cancer and had lost her job due to a shoulder injury. Depression was already a hereditary trait in our family but these incidents escalated it. It is only because of the support of our friends and family and the support of the psychologists, social workers, and medical staff, that we are both alive today.
I still struggle with depression and stomach issues but it is much easier to manage and because of this I want to help other women and girls to get the care and support they need to continue on.
