Welcome to Tanya's Personal Page
Your Support Means the World to Me

In 2018, I will be joining my team, the Sole Sisters & the Misters, and will be Marching for those who can't.  

I will once again be taking part in Kidney March - a 3 day, 100 km journey from Kananaskis to Calgary. This is more than just a walk. This is big. I am joining hundreds of others as a united front against kidney disease.

Why? Kidney disease is personal. My Mom was diagnosed over 40 years ago with Kidney Disease.  Although she was so very fortunate to receive a donor kidney from her amazing sister-in-law 16 years ago, it's still a disease that affects her every single day and is a disease that rules her life.  So I March for my Mom and for all of the other Canadians who suffer from this horrible disease.  It affects 10% of the population, yet is seldom spoken of. Kidneys are two of the hardest working organs in your body. They remove waste and excess water, and control mineral and hormone levels. When your kidneys aren't functioning properly, it impacts every aspect of your life.

When diagnosed early enough, we can slow down kidney disease. Because you can lose 80% kidney function without any symptoms, many people don't know they have kidney disease until they are close to kidney failure. On average, 15 Canadians are newly diagnosed with kidney failure every day.

Kidney failure can be fatal. Unfortunately, it is a leading cause of death in Canada. And there is no cure.

On September 7th, 8th and 9th, I will walk 100km . . . . it will be challenging, but I am excited for it. A chronic illness so encompassing as kidney disease deserves a walk of this magnitude. I am training in preparation of marching 100 km. But I need your help. My goal is to raise a minimum of $2,200 and my team's goal is to raise a total of $23,000. Please sponsor me or my team!


Thank you for taking up the torch on behalf of the millions affected or at risk. A kidney crisis is looming. The time to make a difference is now. Failure is not an option.
