Hi, Waterloo Region is THE place in my life, having been born and raised here and where I: graduated from Laurier; met my amazing husband, Rob; had our wonderful sons – Colin & Corey; spent the majority of my working career as an HR professional; was the consummate hockey, fastball, volleyball…sports mom; spoil 2 grand doggies – Teddy & Koda and now await being a new mother-in-law to two special women – Erin & Melissa.
I have been very fortunate to have been involved in a whole host of volunteer activities over the years. Currently, I spend my time with Hockey Helps the Homeless, House of Friendship, YW and KidsAbility but in the past have also had the privilege of working with OneRoof, the MayCourt Club, the Sunshine Foundation and the St. Mary’s Volunteer Association.
If you wonder what has brought me to HopeSpring in the newer role of Peer Support Volunteer, it’s been my new season of survivorship from both lung & breast cancer. The past 4 years I have been blessed with incredible family support, wise health care teams and friends that have stood strongly with me and now I am extremely fortunate to support others who reach out to HopeSpring as they bravely travel through their cancer journeys. It is very humbling to be given this volunteer recognition when it is truly an honour to support our HopeSpring members!
Hello dear HopeSpring community. Christina here. I’ve been a volunteer facilitator for the every-other-Tuesday-evening women’s cancer support group since July 2019.
When I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I was fortunate to be connected with a peer support volunteer who offered me very much needed support during a very scary time. She was seven years out from her diagnosis and just knowing that she had been on the “other side” for that long gave me hope that I too would be on the other side and able to help someone else one day. And here I am, almost eight years later, able to offer my support to women experiencing their own cancer challenges and hopes.
I can’t even begin to tell you what a beautiful experience it is to lead this group. The support, the understanding, the care and the love exchanged by the women in the group is life-affirming and we have all agreed that we leave our meetings feeling a little lighter. It’s a special feeling to know there’s a space where we’ve got each other’s backs, where we can share the load and make each other’s lives just a little bit easier.
Thank you to all the HopeSpring staff and volunteers who make all of this amazing support possible. Especially now, when we need each other more than ever.
It takes a community to come together to support one another.
