October 2nd, 2014
Many of you are aware that Ms. McTavish is on a leave this year. You may also be aware that three years ago Mrs. McTavish was diagnosed with breast cancer. At that time she underwent surgery and chemotherapy treatments to treat the disease, and she was able to return to teaching the following fall. For the past two and a half years, she has enjoyed good health. Unfortunately, she experienced a relapse at the end of this past summer. She is currently undergoing chemotherapy treatment to continue fighting the disease and looks forward to finding out what other treatments are available as a next step. Ms. McTavish remains confident that she can win this fight. She and her family are extremely grateful for the tremendous support they’ve received from the Margaret Avenue community during this challenging time.
This Sunday, October 5th, our staff, Mrs. McTavish’s family, and over 50 of her beloved friends, will all be participating in the 2014 Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure. The breast cancer cause is one that is very close to our hearts and we are proud to be working together to raise funds in support of it. The CIBC Run for the Cure is Canada’s largest single-day, volunteer-led fundraising event dedicated to raising funds for breast cancer research, education, and advocacy initiatives. If you’d like to learn more about the Run for the Cure or to support Mrs. McTavish’s team “Jen’s Jedi” please review the link below:
Mrs. McTavish continues to be in our hearts, minds and prayers each day as we feel her absence at Margaret Avenue Senior.
