On September 26, 2020, Paula experienced a profound moment of joy when she welcomed her newborn son, Bennett, into the world at the Civic Hospital in Ottawa. However, this joy was soon juxtaposed with the news of a significant tumor in her spine, marking the beginning of a daunting journey.

Through the support of blood cancer research and innovation, Paula emerged from this ordeal with a newfound determination to advocate for those affected by this relentless disease.

As Event Co-Chair of the Light the Night Campaign in Ottawa, Paula is honored to play a role in bringing communities together to share stories, honor loved ones, and inspire hope in the fight against blood cancers. Her personal experience underscores the importance of this cause, and she invites others to join her in championing the mission to end blood cancer once and for all.
