In March of 2020, Chris Isfeld and his childhood friend Shawn Bjornsson completed a massive challenge. Three years after Chris was diagnosed with late stage melanoma and became partially paralyzed from the waist down, they ran 30km across frozen Lake Winnipeg and raised almost $20,000 for melanoma patients.
This year, life has thrown Chris yet another curve-ball. A large mass was found on his right adrenal gland, forcing him to stop training to focus on his treatment. Though Chris is hopeful that the immunotherapy treatment that saved his life in 2017 will help him overcome this latest challenge, he needs our support!
Let’s show Chris he is not alone on this journey by joining A Viking’s Challenge and pledging to run or walk! By channeling our inner Vikings, we will make a powerful statement of support for Chris and fellow melanoma patients across Canada.
And don’t forget to check your skin every month!
There’s no better time to prioritize your health by making a resolution to check your skin every month for skin cancer.
Monthly skin checks are the best way to detect skin cancer before it spreads. And the easiest way to stick to your resolution is to schedule it! Simply set a monthly notification on your phone to make sure you don’t forget.
Early detection is so important as it can make all the difference in the case of any melanoma OR non-melanoma skin cancer diagnosis.
