Hi, my name is Rosa Rainone (pictured at the top of this page) and I’m a breast cancer survivor. After being diagnosed in 2006, I was fortunate enough to receive treatment at Jewish General Hospital’s new Segal Cancer Centre. While there, I was part of a successful study treatment program for a new drug. Not only am I cancer free, but I was also able to participate in the 2007 Weekend only two weeks after my treatment concluded!

All over Quebec, The Weekend is helping breast cancer patients get the care they need to become breast cancer survivors. Money raised by a rapidly growing number of Walkers is funding advanced research that yields life-saving new treatments. Of course, a cure is the ultimate victory. But with every dollar we raise, with every person who gets a second chance at life, and with every step we take that shows we believe we can change the world, we are on The Road to Victory.
