IT4CC 2019

Team Ambassador - Alexandra MacKay
Team Ambassador - Alexandra MacKay

Palo Alto Networks

Alexandra is a two-time cancer survivor. Her story is one of courage, strength, and resilience. Alexandra's is the first published case of DICER1 mutation - a genetic mutation that causes a variety of rare cancers; however, her DICER1 and cancer diagnoses don't define this fierce and fabulous 13 year old!

Alexandra is a competitive dancer in tap and jazz, she enjoys being an ambassador and speaking for SickKids and Childhood Cancer Canada foundations, and she is looking forward to high school and the leadership opportunities this next phase has to offer. Sharing her story with others is a chance to give back to the hospital and researchers who have saved her life, and is a way to turn the challenges of living with cancer into blessings. Alexandra is looking forward to spending the evening with you all. 

Please Support Our Journey

 

Did you know that only 5% of cancer research dollars is allocated to childhood cancer?

We are fundraising for IT4CC in support of Childhood Cancer Canada (CCC) and would love to be able to count on your support. Together we can further life-saving research, and help grow CCC's critical education, community and connectivity programs to children with cancer and their families.

Let's create more victories for the 10,000 kids currently battling cancer in Canada.


Thank you for giving generously.
