Alison's Story

Alison Davidson.jpgMy mother, Pat Crossman, began her battle with breast cancer in 1993, when she was diagnosed for the first time at 53 years old.

After a mastectomy and chemo, my mom was almost at that critical five-year cancer-free milestone when the doctors discovered the cancer had returned. In December of 2002, her journey ended when she passed away at the age of 62. Her legacy lives on through our team, Pat’s Pride, named in her honour. This year marks our 10th year participating in the CIBC Run for the Cure.

The Run meant a great deal to my mother and she was thrilled to be asked to serve as the honorary Chairwoman in 2001. At the Run, I remember seeing a total stranger wearing a bib that said ‘I’m running for Pat Crossman.’ The level of support we both felt on her behalf was overwhelming. The event was so moving that it drove me to commit to do what I could to fight this awful disease.

I can’t say enough about how blessed I am to have had such a wonderful mother and through the CIBC Run for the Cure, I am continuing her battle, with my children by my side in her memory. The sun always shines on race day, no matter the weather.

On Sunday, September 30, we are running for my mother. Who are you running for?
