Why did you participate in the BC Generations Project?
Our daughter, and only child, had Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL), which is a form of leukemia or cancer of the white blood cells, at age 3, and thanks to the care at BC Children’s Hospital and the work of the various cancer organizations, she made a full recovery. She’s mentally challenged and can’t pay forward, so I’m doing it for her.
In addition, I was curious as to how my health compared to others.
In the last few years, have you made any changes to your lifestyle in the interest of cancer prevention?
Not particularly. I try to eat in healthy ways, and I am trying to lose weight, but that’s been a lifetime battle!
Would you recommend or have you recommended participating in the BC Generations Project to others?
Absolutely! I’ve told a number of people, at least one of whom I believe has participated.
What do you feel you got out of participating in the project?
As I mentioned, the satisfaction of paying forward a little of our debt, and helping to improve our ability to defeat cancer and protect our future generations.
