Support My Ride to Conquer Cancer
Welcome to my Personal Page! The Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer benefiting the Segal Cancer Centre at the Jewish General Hospital is a cycling journey through Quebec’s countryside that I’m embarking on to fight cancer. This will be my third ride of approximately 250 kilometere, and I hope it will be easier than last year's weather challenged epic struggle. With my wife Lynn and our BIKUS URACHUS TEAM we will once again do our part in fighting this dreadful disease.
Many of you know that my daughter Lori was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010. At the time she was 34 years old with a wonderful husband and a beautiful one year old daughter. Well, after a tough ordeal she is entering her seventh year as a survivor and doing just great. She has since added to her family with an amazing son and living a very happy and healthy life. Others with her circumstances have not beem so lucky. This past year my mom Shirley died of lung cancer. She lived and enjoyed 92 wonderful years and suffered minimally, so we count her as one of the lucky ones. However, this disease must be stopped and all we can do from our side is raise awareness and funds to fight it. For them and all those to come, we wish a cure to be found quickly and to help save lives going forward.
Your contribution in supporting me in The Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer will be more appreciated than you could ever know. Please do what you can in helping me do a little bit to thank those who helped our family and to help those who don't know they will need this help in the future.
Last year was my second year participating in this amazing event. For me it was a challenging ride, but the support I got was well worth the pain. Over the past two years I have been able to raise over $42,000 for this cause and my team has raised close to $400,000. I hope to better my efforts this year and to pledge to continue as long as I can or until we defeat this dreadful disease.
From the bottom of my heart a big "Thank You".
