Since it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we have dedicated time to share stories of those affect so you are able to see where your money is going when you choose to participate in Home for a Cure. See below to learn more about Elaine Pearson and her story.

Elaine’s Story

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

elaine

On July 1st, 1991 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. What a devastating experience! I had a mastectomy on July 16th of that year and I have been cancer free for 20 years. I am so fortunate. My mother passed away from breast cancer 32 years ago and thankfully, research has brought us a long way since then.

Now that RE/MAX plays an outstanding role with the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure, I feel just great being the Team RE/MAX Captain for the Toronto runsite. When I phone in or go to the offices, I feel so comfortable talking and sharing my story. I have never been shy about my experience, however now that I have an active part in the CIBC Run for the Cure through RE/MAX, I am more vocal about the Run than ever.

Through Home for a Cure, RE/MAX associates have the opportunity to help create a future without breast cancer. Since 2005, RE/MAX agents have contributed more than $1.8M by donating a portion of home sales directly to CBCF. Click the button below to learn more and get involved to help women like Elaine!
