of Pink Warrior® starts with a cancer story. The story of Fiona, and her husband
Kelly, who rubbed her legs when the pain was too unbearable, cooled her
forehead while she vomited after chemotherapy, and spent countless nervous
hours at doctors' offices waiting for results. A story of loss for what could
have been, anguish, fear, not to mention the expected discomfort and nausea but also chronic pain,
countless surgeries and scars.
cancer story is also one of hope and survival. Fiona learned to be brave
through the tough times, celebrate the good times and become her own advocate
and stand up for herself. She learned to think of herself as a survivor from
the moment she was diagnosed, not someone focused on a destination, but a raw
determination to never give up along her journey.
experience was the catalyst for Kelly's mission to Be a Part of the
Difference™. With Fiona, Kelly founded and grew Pink Warrior® with a mission to
raise awareness for and fund cancer research. No one draws a salary, it is all
volunteer. The Pink Warrior Foundation is distinct in Canada
for its commitment to cancer research for all types of cancer as well as
directing all donations to cancer research.

10 years, Pink Warrior, along with an army of dedicated volunteers and
supporters, has hosted or joined hockey tournaments, concerts, cabarets and
