Welcome to my Cancer Fighters fundraising page
My name is Megan, and I am a 2nd year medical student at the University of Saskatchewan. To date, I have donated 23" of my hair and I have a lifelong goal of 70" (my height in inches)! Please consider donating to support my fundraising goal as I shave my head to reach the halfway mark of 35" of hair donated.
Cancer has touched mine and my family's life in many ways. From the passing of both of my grandfathers when I was 1 year old, to the many family members and friends diagnosed and treated in recent years. Since my very first biology class in high school focused on cellular signaling and mitosis, I have been fascinated by the molecular intricacies of cancer and cancer research. I carried this passion forward into my undergraduate degree and graduate studies focusing on the molecular biology of cancer, and am now interested in a career in oncology as a physician. As a future physician, not only do I see value in funding research, but also the social services, advocacy, and support they provide to cancer patients and their families.
I will also be auctioning off the shaving of my head to the highest bidder. Bids can be placed at: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1yoccX_iKy0jDM9_pXHJRmQIYMZ1b-vuh2uXHtakCTHU/edit?usp=sharing
Every donation takes us one step further in the fight against cancer.
Online pledging is secure and it saves the Canadian Cancer Society money by reducing administrative costs.
Thank you so much for your support.
