Hi, my name is Jennifer Hunt and I’m a two-time breast cancer survivor. My journey began in 2001 with my first diagnosis of breast cancer. I received great care from The Tom Baker Cancer Centre and went into remission. I was just shy of the 5-year mark in my remission when I was diagnosed with breast cancer again in 2005. I am happy to say that I achieved remission again in 2006! I am here today because of advancements in research and care, and the wonderful support my daughter Jaqueline and husband John.

All over Alberta, 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 that gets a second chance at life, and with every step we take who shows we believe we can change the world, we are on The Road to Victory.
