Mandy, I just read the news. You are one hell of a fighter to get into the ring against Cancan feeling the way you were. You did amazing considering the circumstances! Be proud of yourself for getting to Rio, and being an Olympian through and though - body, spirit and mind. Waterloo is proud of you!
AndrewWaterloo, Ontario

Mandy, congratulations on your performance in Rio. You showed courage and class !
Greg MurdochKitchener, Ontario

Mandy, you may recall we met at the Canadian Tire Trade show last year. I work at ACI. My family has been following you. I have two girls that are 14 and 12. We are incredibly proud of you and your courage to step in the ring despite being so sick. I shared your update with my girls/family and its really heart breaking but we are so proud of you. My girls (we) are very touched by how you have handled this with such class, determination, etc. you are truly a great role model for our kids, future athletes and Canadians. Be proud and thank you for sharing your journey with us.

A tragic and unfair end to your Olympic dream! Despite the lack of a medal this time, you can hold close your experience and world recognition for life.
Hold your head up high as we are all very proud of your accomplishments on the world stage. Get well, take care and safe travel to you and your family.

Dear Mandy,
We were so sorry to hear that you are in hospital - and you have to know that we didn't know about your ordeal when we watched the fight here - had to watch without sound because I was in a meeting. Despite that, you did your best against a formidable opponent - and we are all very proud of you.
Finding out that you dragged yourself out of hospital to compete puts you on the top of the podium in my books. You are a winner on all counts.
Minto SchneiderKitchener, ON

Tough loss....I just heard from the CBC about your showed great courage and gave it your all, that was clearly apparent in the fight right up until the last bell. You did us all proud in the boxing community back home, take a bow.....Peter and the gang at Cabbagetown.

I have been an Olympics addict since my mother introduced me to them at 9 years of age. 1976 in Montreal. The fact that in this day and age I can send you a message wishing you luck is very cool. The fact that you live in Kitchener is beyond exciting. Good Luck Mandy. Do your best. Enjoy every minute, no matter what the outcome!!! I'd like to think that if I had been an Olympian that's what my mom would have said to me.

Hello Mandy,

I saw this link on Facebook, cool site and I wanted to wish you good luck. So excited that you are at the Olympics, well deserved and much hard work to earn that. Go get what you've been training so hard for all these years....your Olympic Gold medal. I am looking forward to watching all three of you compete via lifestream or tv. Pleasure was meeting you at my boxing club Griffins four years ago when you all trained towards the Worlds at the training camp there. Proud of you.

Take care.
