Support My Ride to Conquer Cancer
This year I decided to again accept a huge challenge, the challenge to join a dynamic team to ride over 230 kilometers by cycling through the nicest Quebec countryside for the 'Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer benefiting the Segal Cancer Centre at the Jewish General Hospital'.
Together we will cycle for the same reason, eradicate cancer.
Unfortunately too many people are diagnosed with cancer. Each of us knows someone close or afar that are fighting this terrible illness. My parents, my brother and other members of my family, friends have experienced this terrible illness. Some have survived and others are still fighting.
But this beautiful adventure that I will experience is more particularly intense for me because of the departure of my very good friend "Ben" who passed away September 3rd 2014, at the young age of 41. In spite of the progression and aggressivity of the illness, our hero stayed determined to fight, he wanted to stay close to the ones he loved. Determined, he persisted and did not change his mind, he cycled at last year's ride as he had planned, although he was receiving chemotherapy treatments for a shoulder sarcoma and lung metastasis.
He had an immense courage and an enormous determination and it is with determination that I will pedal, with my heart full of emotion in his memory.
Meanwhile without your help and your donations I will not succeed, that is why I am asking you to donate so that I can be part of this beautiful adventure, each participant must rise a total of $2,500.
The funds raised will go directly to the ride and will be used to support the research and aid the most urgent needs of those patients and their families throughout Quebec.
I would like to thank you in advance for your support; we need to stop losing our loved ones to this terrible illness.
