When I was just a child, my grandmother died of breast cancer. I remember hearing some time later that I had a one in eight chance of getting breast cancer myself as a result, and that my mother had a one in two chance of the same thing. While new studies have shown that’s not true and that only 5-10% of breast cancers are hereditary, it’s something that worried me in younger years.
Cancer is one of those diseases that has affected almost everyone at some point, whether from personal experience or from the struggles of a family member or friend. And if you’re looking for a way to show support for loved ones battling the disease, the Shoppers Drug Mart OneWalk to Conquer Cancer is a fun way to be part of a game-changing movement to conquer cancer.
The walk supports the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation, one of the top five cancer research centres in the world. And to help get you excited about the event and share some great information, the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation is hosting a fun-filled Twitter party for this worthy cause!
Come join in the conversation on June 2, 2015 at 8pm EST for the #OneWalkShoeSelfie Twitter party to show your support for the fight against cancer. In addition to learning about the Shoppers Drug Mart OneWalk to Conquer Cancer and the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation, you’ll have the chance to win one of ten $100 Shopper’s Drug Mart Gift Cards!
But while the prizes are a fun bonus, it’s the chance to show support in the fight against cancer that really makes this party a must-attend event. If you’re new to Twitter parties, consider following along on Twubs. There’s no RSVP required, so mark your calendar and come join in. It’s sure to be a fun and educational way to be a part of the fight against cancer!
