Peter Cortesis & Mary Johnson

This is my Yia-Yia (Grandmother Mary Johnson) who is the mother, to my mother Elizabeth Cortesis. From my memories she was a wonderful person who everyone adored. Taken too soon from us. My daughter Penelope was given her second name as Mary, after my Yia-Yia. Penelope Mary Cortesis

My Story

This August, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!

Why? Because right now, over 1,400 children are diagnosed with cancer every year, and it's the biggest killer of children from disease in Canada.

Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

So I am raising funds through my challenge to help these kids and support SickKids Foundation to allow them to continue their work in developing treatments and finding a cure for childhood cancer.

Please support me by making a donation to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

Your support will change little lives.

Thank you.

Peter
