THE CONQUEROR PROJECT
” She stood in the storm and when the wind didn’t blow her way she adjusted her sails”
Quote from elizabeth edwards, book “Resilience” it reflected how she hoped her children would remember her after she was gone. Elizabeth died of breast cancer in 2010 at age 61.
Conqueror Project – The Fight to Conquer Cancer
My name is Kathleen and in March 2014 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. My way of dealing with adversity is to fight the problem head on. In this case I chose to support breast cancer research through a fund-raising initiative to donate funds to on-going breast cancer research.
The project is called the “Conqueror Project” as that is the hope – that with the funds raised, we can help to conquer breast cancer. The treatments and medication I take were both the result of many years of research and happily I am the beneficiary of all the research that has occurred. It is my hope that through the “Conqueror Project” enough funds will be raised to aid the researchers in their quest for the answers to the big questions leading to a cure for this epidemic disease.
In Canada in the year 2014, it is estimated that 24,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and in that same time period 5000 will die from this disease. I have been very lucky with my bad luck, as my cancer has all the right features to make it easily treatable and therefore allow for a good prognosis in conjunction with the right treatments and medications and follow-up.
Supporting breast cancer research
The “Conqueror Project” raises funds through various events and promotions, and donates money directly without any administrative fees.
Donation of $10.00 per racquet and $5.00 per athletic T-shirt sold by Black Knight Canada will be made to help breast cancer research.
My journey through the darkness after being told I had breast cancer has been very comforting and rewarding because of the response to the “Conqueror Project”. It is my hope that I have touched you in some small way to have your support.
This is the story of the “Conqueror Project” and its inception. 100% of the funds raised will be donated directly to breast cancer research labs. There are no administrative expenses thanks to the generous assistance of many volunteers.
Thanks to all those who have given of their time and resources, as well as all those who have purchased Conqueror products. I am well on my way to achieving my goal of raising $100,000.00 in Canada.
