The Wendy Bear
The Wendy Bear is being sold in memory of Wendy Sittler – the very special late wife of hockey legend Darryl Sittler. Wendy was a loyal friend of Colon Cancer Canada as she bravely fought this disease and raised awareness for the cause. The money raised from the sale of The Wendy Bear will go towards helping terminally ill patients spend some time at home with their loved ones. Because Wendy was such a caring and generous individual, we dedicate this bear in her memory.
The Tanya Bracelet
These bracelets are made and sold in honour of Tanya Shepherd, an amazing young woman who lost her battle with colon cancer and left us far too soon. During Tanya’s fight, family members created and sold cancer bracelets, where each colour of bead represents a different type of cancer. These bracelets are now sold at all the walk locations with proceeds being donated to Colon Cancer Canada, and directly to patient support services.
