Support My Ride to Conquer Cancer
Hello Friends, Family and Colleagues,
I am writing to let you all know that I have undertaken to cycle 200 kilometers over two days this next summer for the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer benefitting the Alberta Cancer Foundation. This is going to be a big challenge for someone of my age and present physical condition! It pales in comparison, though, to the challenge that thousands of cancer patients face every day.
The fight for a future free of cancer is very personal to me. As many of you know, I lost my Mom to breast cancer when I was 10 years old. Last January, my 23 year old son Mack was diagnosed with testicular cancer. After successful surgery and nine months of negative testing he had a recurrence and was required to undergo chemotherapy which is now complete. Thankfully, the treatment was successful and Mack is back on a surveillance program. He is an extraordinary and strong young man and will unquestionably beat this disease but to watch him endure the brutal treatment and its rash of horrible side effects is both heartbreaking and gut-wrenching, to say the least. We need to conquer cancer for Mack and for everyone that has been touched by this vile disease.
I know that all of you have many demands for your charitable dollars from a plethora of great causes but ask that when making this years giving decisions that you keep my ride in mind. This is a great opportunity to give back to your community in support of this important and pressing cause.
Every donation counts and no matter what you give, it will have a positive impact on the lives of cancer patients. For those of you that may be inclined, I would love to have you join me on the Ride. To do so, please contact Krystal @ 403-775-1439 or 888-624-2453 toll free. Please bear in mind that riders are expected to raise $2500 on their own account. Our team name will be “Macksmilkshakes” and we have set a lofty goal of raising $25,000. I have no doubt we will reach and exceed it. Please feel free to share this with any contacts you wish.
Please click on the link below to donate online or, alternatively, should you wish to donate by way of cheque please let me know and we can arrange to pick it up. Cheques are payable to "The Ride to Conquer Cancer" or "The Alberta Cancer Foundation".
