Support My Ride to Conquer Cancer®
Welcome to my Personal Page! The Ride to Conquer Cancer Presented by Silver Wheaton benefiting BC Cancer Foundation, is a two-day cycling journey, through Canada's Pacific region taking place in the summer. It will be a challenge in a number of ways, but with my bike, my helmet, and your generosity, a real impact will be made!
I am honored and blessed to be riding again this year. This will be my fourth year. Initially my children and I participated in the ride as supporters and cheered on my husband and other fellow Wheelin' Warriors of the North. I was so moved by the experience I could not help but want to be more involved in this so important cause. The inspiration of so many survivors riding, loved ones riding for those they had lost and loved ones riding for those currently battling cancer was incredibly moving. My story begins with a strong heartfelt desire to get cancer out of all our lives and conquer it for good. So many family members and friends diagnosed with cancer. So many courageous battles won and so many with sad endings.
Closest to my heart are my Father, my Mother-in-Law and my Sister-in-Law. We had three family members diagnosed with cancer in 2012. Our lives devastated in an instant as cancer now became a reality in our lives! My Father, Real, has now been cancer free for 5 years! His courageous battle continues daily with him having the upper hand. We are so blessed and thankful for everyday we have together. I will never forget the day he rang the bell at the Cancer Agency at the end of his final hopeful chemo session. We are determined that my father will beat this!!! My Sister-in-law, Nola, also known as Nola Rockin' Rolla, fought her courageous battle but sadly in June 2012 was taken from us much too soon. She lived life to the fullest and made such an impact in all our lives. We miss her dearly everyday. My Mother-in-law, Susanne, also fought her courageous battle but in December 2012 was also sadly taken from us. She was always there with an open heart ready to listen and comfort us. A large hole has been left in our hearts, but she still manages to comfort us whenever we see a beautiful butterfly, she is present bringing us love and a smile to our hearts.
The Wheelin' Warriors of the North team was created in 2012 in memory of my Sister-in-Law Nola. My Husband, Quentin, was approached by the founder of the team and long time friend of Nola's, Karin Piche, to join in the conquest against cancer and without hesitation he committed to this so important cause. I truly believe that we can conquer cancer and if we all work together, great things can happen. The cure is just around the corner. Let's beat this together, so that not one more person has to go through what so many have been through. Together with your donation and every turn of my pedal we can be one step closer to conquering cancer.
I have committed to raising a minimum of $2500 and I would be very grateful for a donation to help me reach my goal and contribute to this powerful movement. 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.
