One More Day Campaign | The Modern Fort | Cancer Awareness

Three years ago when I was scrolling my Instagram feed I read something that touched me. Something that made me think a littler hard and feel a little deeper. This something was the launch of The One More Day Campaign. The Modern Fort and Arrow House joined forces to raise awareness and money for those fighting cancer. That year I bought my first of my three OMD sweaters, knowing that the money I was spending was going to a cause that meant something to me.

When I attended their launch event last year and each of us went in a circle sharing who we were and what that campaign meant to us, I was touched. One stood out in particular of a girl who had lost her sister to cancer. I couldn’t imagine. I refrained from imagining. I felt heart broken for her as that would be harder then words can express.

Then the month before OMD launched this year we got news that my sister has cancer. It brought this all back. (see her update here)

But the thing is, my sister is not the only one who is battling cancer, there are so many people. Too many people. So thankfully, for people like The Modern Fort and Arrow House that step up, we can make a change. We can come together to support these people. This year they are specifically raising money in support of moms with cancer.

Partial proceeds from each pullover will be going back to surprise some deserving moms in our community. With goals to plan a retreat like feel for these woman to feel loved and blessed. They give so much of themselves to others (such as their families) before they give to themselves.

Another campaign objective to raise awareness for early detection – “seriously… check yourself,” says Joanna of The Modern Fort. They also aim to provide emotional support to moms currently battling the fight of their lives as well as create an inclusive environment for moms to support one another in a journey such as this.

  • When I started working out around the house more Ezra asked me, “Why are you doing those exercises all the time now?” and I responded by saying, “Because I want to be stronger.” That’s what inspired this photo and my “strong” pose.

For the next couple of months, I have partnered with @planetfitnessca and will be sharing more about what I am doing to take care of myself and bring those home workouts to the gym while I check out their Abbotsford location.

P.S. did you know that a PF Black Card membership allows you to bring a friend for a free workout every time you go in?? Comment below if you want to be
my friend and join me! #seriously

  • Don’t be fooled by our matching outfits and their cute faces, the majority of my photos looked like photo two and three.
  • We’ve been under the weather (mainly the kids 🤒 ) for what seems like forrrreverrrr!! We bundled up anyways and took in some of this ❄️ snow and even though it’s cold AF and our 🐕 puppy might be the biggest wimp of all it was definitely worth it.
  • I like pink drinks and I can not lie. ⠀

I also love my SodaStream! I am so excited to share that I'll be creating more deliciousness with @sodastreamcanada this year as they asked me to join their #streamteam for the second year. Last year I learnt so much about how they are changing the world with bubbles, reducing waste and turning so many pop drinkers into sparkling water lovers. Best part is, you use tap water from your home so whenever you want to make bubbly water (as my kids say) it's so easy! #partner⠀

  • Would it be weird if I said we drove around specifically looking for this door? #thatpinkdoor #butnot
  • #AD Our TV is usually set up in our garage's man cave but during the winter months it makes its way into the living room. We love having cozy family movie nights and enjoying some Orville Redenbacher Extra Buttery popcorn. It's butter-ly delicious! Bonus: it's made with no artificial colours, flavours, or preservatives. What's your favourite family movie right now? @orvillecanada #originalpopcorn #OrvilleCanada Photo: @juliechristinephotography
