Linnea's Legion - Dragomir Vujnovic
Support My Ride for Cancer Research in Alberta
Dear Family and Friends,
I'm honored to participate third year, as a part of Linnea's Legion team, in Ride to Conquer Cancer - in support of rising funds for research in the field of cancer. This way, I would like to support research efforts to understood and eventually greatly improve cancer treatments and give many families joy of having loved ones beside them and celebrating their lives to the fullest. Also, through my suffering to have to ride 100 km in one day (two days in a row!), I’d like to support and commemorate all brave souls who are/were courageously dealing with this debilitating illness, as well as all great people in my life that have to live with and go through treatments for cancer.
There is also another personal reason for doing this ride. Thirteen years ago, I was diagnosed with Follicular Lymphoma, typically a slow-growing, or indolent, form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. I consider myself lucky that my body was able to deal with it for such a long period without progressing to the stage that would come with unpleasant symptoms. However, last year some symptoms started appearing, and the indolent form of lymphoma "decided" to transform to diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. As result of that transformation, last summer I spent going through four and half months of chemotherapy. However, my per-therapy physical activates and to some degree my stubbornness, enabled me to complete last year’s Ride to Conquer Cancer anyway.
Having to do my treatment at Cross Cancer Institute, I had a first-hand experience how great job all stuff in this institution doing and making huge positive difference in life of people who have to go for chemotherapy or radiation treatments. Also, my journey would have been way harder if I didn’t have a great support from all members of Linnea’s Legion and I’m greatly appreciative for their support and friendship!
Please donate to this great cause! Every donation how big or small is greatly appreciated and contributes to great cause! Thank you!
