OMG only 4 days till the we ride wahooooo
Two week delay before I can get n my bike :(
Hi everyone yup I am signed up to ride again in summer 2017 it's ride #9, yikes this will be my 8th year. O hope you can support my ride again. I can't do this without you!!!!!!!
Good Morning everyone;
Well another year is done. This past weekend was amazing. There were 1750 riders and we rode almost 240 kilometers over two days. We raise 7.9 million dollars that goes directly to helping people with Cancer in Alberta so people like me. The reaseach for my cancer is actually being done at the Tom Baker Cancer Center, you really are helping me.
The staff and volunteers were outstanding. This by far was my most successful year for strength and skills, given what I have been through pretty dame good. But my cancer journey is not over this Friday I will under go more surgery and fingers crossed I will be cancer free soon.
My bike is now put away for a bit. You will be happy to know YES my goal is to be a part of the 2016 (#8) Ride to Conquer Cancer.
With all my heart THANK YOU, again for being a part of my support team and a part of my success, with your help I will beat cancer.
In less tan 24 hours ride. This is number 7 for me I have been at every one and manged to ride even though treatment. There are no words that could express my gratitude to everyone evolved. I am here because of all of them.

Hi Everyone; yes we are all signed up for 2015 and this weather makes you want to go out and bike too! I was at 3 different doctors yesterday and Cancer is still on my plate everyday looking forward to one day being free that thinking but not today. More tests Monday afternoon yippee. ALso waiting for more surgery yup I will keep you posted.
Have a great day everyone LOVE YOU
everyone it is only 48 hours away now. I can't believe how fast the last year has gone by. It seems like only last week I was still in treatment and now it is 7 months done. Just a odd feeling.
I will be going for more surgery but not this weekend. So good luck to everyone, and ride safe, and hard. Have a fulfilling day. 230 kilometers is allot of time to process stuff :)
A HUGE THANKS TO THOSE to donated to my ride, there by the grace of God and reserach I am here today.
BIGGEST HUGE THANKS
Love my support team and that includes all the families that donate to my ride - amazing support LOVE YOU ALL
Back in for tests this week keep your fingers crossed! We are hoping it has not spread to my lymph nodes.
Just a quick update. February was a big month and I had the opportunity to represent the Ride To Conquer Cancer with the Alberta Cancer Foundation for World Cancer day. It was amazing and everyone was just lovely. I ended up doing two TV interviews two newspapers and one radio station. Pretty cool.
Well based on the weather it will be a bit yet before I can get outside to ride my bike, but looking forward to getting my bike tuned up very so.
Also funding raising has just started but hoping you are all still with me. This year is a big year and a big challenge for me.
I will keep posted on my training. If you wish to see the TV interview just search CFCN.CA then search for world cancer day. Or I am on page 43 for this months Canadian Cycling magazine.
Have an amazing day everyone you are all why I ride!
Well today I had my check up with oncology, it's been almost 90 days since I finished treatment. I am happy to report that I am holding steady. All my tests were good. I still have 4 more years of meds to take. We added another one today but it is to help with side affects.
Sides affects, the worst being chronic fatigue, I get so tired, but exercise actually helps I know strange but true. Exercise helps with allot of the side affects, not really strong enough to do much more than just work on getting stronger. Strong and healthy is the goal.
Some cool stuff is happening too. Tomorrow I will be doing a video for the Alberta Cancer Foundation for World Cancer Day. February 4. It's odd that we have a world cancer day not that we want to celebrate cancer but we do need funding research and awareness. I think it is a huge honour and hope it turns out well. I will keep you posted on how it goes.
I hope every one is well and enjoying winter :) RRRRReally looking forward to spring and getting on my bike.
All the best to you all.
Just wanted to send a quick update. It's been a crazy year. Last Christmas was very scary, I was so sick and very unsure about my future. I am very glad to report I am doing really well! I have cancer meds to take everyday for 4 more years in hopes of keeping the cancer away as long as possible. So I am as close as I will ever be to being cancer free.
Spending lots of time with family celebrating life. Also spending time working on getting stronger. And that being said; I am back to work the second week on January. short shifts to start. I havn't done anything for 8 hours other than hospitals in 16 months.
I will keep you all posted and when my bike training starts as you know I am riding again in 2014. It's going to be my best year yet.
With all my heart I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. You all have been a part of my success and I thank you so very much xoxoxoxoxox
Heres to health and happiness in 2014
OMG another ride completed what an amazing weekend.
Well I have finished radiation and just have (light) chemo every three weeks till November. So 2/3 of the way through treatment. The pain from radiation and healing is a bit over the top some days, but healing well. All my doctors are happy with my progress. Everyone in the radiation department were just so very kind and supportive. I have had an amazing opportunity to meet some lovely people. It's the good side of cancer.
The ride is a month away and I still plan on riding but need to train. It is going to be a huge challenge but if nothing else cancer has taught me that I can and will do this. I have an amazing support team how could I not be successful.
