Welcome to My Personal Page
After buying a bike last summer and learning to ride well, I am ready to attempt this challenging event for a great cause. This will be the first year that I am riding and for a number of very important reasons:
Cancer has challenged the lives of those closest to me on several occasions.
As an employee of the Jewish Hospital in the Oncology department, I am privileged to witness the ways in which young people and people of all ages navigate the complexities of their illness while ensuring their quality of life, never losing sight of their dreams and goals. I am determined to help end this struggle by supporting the research that conquers cancer.
More specifically, money from the ride will go to fund the storage of blood from patients with lymphoma and/or other cancers treated with chemotherapy and immunotherapy. This valuable resource has been made available to multiple researchers across Quebec and Canada.
Research goals of our team:
1.To determine the best type and optimal duration of therapy in patients treated for their lymphoma. We monitor circulating tumour DNA in the blood to monitor drug response.
2. To optimize effective and safe immunotherapy to cancer patients. In support of our team of oncologists, hematologists, immunologists, rheumatologists and basic scientists working together to understand how to harness the power of the immune system to fight cancer, while minimizing the immune-related side-effects to patients. They accomplish this by studying the changes in the immune cells obtained from the blood of patients treated with immunotherapy.
Thank you for your support!
