Support My Ride to Conquer Cancer®
Eight years ago, I made the commitment to raise over $2000 and walk 50km in 2 days through the streets of Vancouver for my mom, who at the time was undergoing treatment for breast cancer. The feeling of helplessness when the strongest woman you know has been taken to her knees was immense. I knew that I had to do something, anything, and that walk was my way of doing something. She has since beat the disease and is living a healthy, happy life.
Last year, I learned that the love of my life, Amy, had two cysts in her ovaries. She then told me that this is a fairly common problem among women, which somewhat out me at ease, although there was still the chance that they could be cancerous. She has since gone through surgery to remove those cysts, which have been confirmed to thankfully not be cancerous. However, why does it have to be this way? Why does a large proportion of women need to go through having a cyst grow in their body, go through worrying that it might be cancerous, and then go through surgery (often multiple times)? I have joined the Ride to Conquer Cancer as I want to out a stop to what Amy had to go through. Discomfort, pain, worrying, weeks off of work and her normal life. I want to put a stop to this thing before it affects her again, or affects any other women out there.
Contribute to this powerful movement, and to my pursuit to put a stop to cancer and all of the ills that go along with it with a donation. Funds raised through the Ride to Conquer Cancer will support life-saving research and enhancements to care at the BC Cancer Agency, bringing hope to cancer patients in B.C. and beyond.
Thank you in advance for your help, and for supporting this cause that we can all get behind.
