Rhonda Sveinbjornson

Rhonda Sveinbjornson

Rhonda Jane Sveinbjornson January 15, 1974 - June 23, 1985. Rhonda was diagnosed with Leiomyosarcoma in 1982 when she was 7 years old. This cancer was unique to children in 1985 and continues to be rare, but about 30 children are diagnosed with it each year in North America. It continues to be treatable but incurable. Ongoing research has been progressive with Leiomyosarcoma in kids, including from our own University of Alberta!

    This June, Remembering Rhonda is 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 we are raising funds through our 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 us by making a donation to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

    Your support will change little lives.

    Thank you.

    The Remembering Rhonda Team.
