2016 Ride to Conquer Cancer
Welcome to my Personal Page.
I chose to participate in the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer because cancer has had a big impact on my life. I lost my mother to the disease 11 years ago, when she was only 51 years old. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think about her.
My mother was diagnosed at the young age of 35 years old. She had surgery, then chemo treatments, and ended up on the winning side. Years later, the cancer came back. It was a trying and emotional time for my whole family. We lived with a lot of hope, then uncertainty and fear. After years of battle, my mother succumbed to the disease on October 16, 2004.
I am riding for my mom; I am riding for the loved ones, relatives & friends that I lost to this disease; for those that are battling it today, for those that unfortunately will battle the disease tomorrow. I am riding to raise awareness for early detection, as well as better medicine and better services to those impacted.
I would love to say that not many people know what my mother, my family, and our friends have been through, but the truth is, way too many people know what battling cancer is like.
This cycling journey will be a challenge in a number of ways, but with my bike, my helmet, and your generosity, a real impact will be made!
The Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer is benefitting the Segal Cancer Centre at the Jewish General Hospital. The funds raised will support breakthrough research, exemplary teaching, and compassionate care at the centre.
Thank you in advance for your help.
