Support My Ride to Conquer Cancer®
Thank You for visiting my Personal Page..
Another year is upon us ..
So many things have changed and yet so many things are still the same............... LIKE my hatred and determination to kick Cancer's Ass.. I was taught not to hate but I REALLY EFFING HATE this disease. Its cruel, painful, unfair and life altering and it needs to be eliminated!! Im feeling a little numb... 2017 has become yet another year of extremely tough battles for so many people around me I just want to scream. Some days its a real struggle, I dont know what to do. I'm not a Doctor and I failed Science so the only way I know how to support my family and friends is by doing my best to help raise funds for Cancer Research in hopes of a cure. I really need your help!
I feel blessed to ride this year for the 5th time with my niece, Kristine, who is a cancer survivor, my Nephew Greg who will be conquering his first ride and my wonderful team the Wheelin Warriors of the North.
I dedicate My 2017 Ride to My Husband Ken, who continues to live and fight cancer everyday as he has treatable but not curable ( May be one day) Non Hodgkins lymphoma, Darlene Pederson, a very special Mom who is going thru a tough battle and still showing Cancer who's boss (atta Girl), Rob Proznick way to fight! stay strong and never give up and Mary-Ann Brander .... a beautiful soul that now rests in Heaven ...this ones for you ... FU CANCER....... and all my Ultimate, true life Warriors that continue to keep up the fight ... Uncle Buzz, Krissy, Roxanne, Sheryl, Teddy the Bear, Heidi, June, Jennifer, John, Kimberly, BB, Bob, Phil, Paul, Courtney, Janice, and Shannon.. and the list keeps growing...

As I celebrated my 50th Surprise Birthday on December 31, 2015 (New Years EVE) with my friends and family .. I was happy and relieved for a brief time as I said good bye to such a challenging painful year of watching my family and friends fight their battles..... And then ... it was like Ground Hog Day... I woke up January 1, 2016 ready to take on the new year and was handed the shattering news that one of my longtime closest, HEALTHIEST friend and a former rider of the RTCC had been diagnosed with cancer........... THIS is how 2016 began... you can only imagine what the other 364 days have had instore... its been yet another challenging year ... my dedication wall continues to grow... Cancer doesn't care who you are, where you are, or what time it is......It has its own agenda... and in a blink of an eye any one of us can have a life changing diagnosis. THAT IS FACT! So.... I continue to ride and fight the fight for my family and friends that need me.. United we stand....CANCER MUST BE BEATEN!!!
I dedicate my 2016 ride to our newest Angel...Beth and My beautiful Mom ( I miss you every day) , Dolly, Jen, Phyllis, Neal, Grandpa#1, Grandpa #2, Aunty Pat and Aunty Margret, Nola rockin rollla, Rick, Debbie, Janet, Tom, Red, Dennis, Danny, Bubba, Sally, Joan, Linda,and Janie ...

The Story that NEVER ends...
Well, here we are again, its hard to believe its been 4 years since I joined the "Ride To Conquer Cancer" in the quest to help fight this disease =D ... Are "WE" making a difference? Hell Ya.... "WE" sure are!!!! ... In that time, 7757 passionate, dedicated riders, along with thousands and thousands of supporters, physically, emotionally and financially have collectively raised 30.7 MILLION $$$$$ for the BC Cancer Foundation to help fund new research which effects not just BC but Canada and the World.. Thats a huge" PAY IT FORWARD" and is pretty Amazing but quite honestly .... We can't stop here.... There are still too many people dying... more research and advances need to be made....and work to be done...
2014-2015 brought many changes in my life but the one thing that didn't change was the need and desire to help, support and continue to fight for the victims faced with cancer everyday. Nobody asks for cancer ... its not a lottery anyone wants to win, there are no rules, just outcomes and life changing situations.... I have always had a personal vendetta against Cancer as it has been lurking around me since I was 7 years old. I've watched and held many hands as they fought to stay in this world, and for the past 10 years my family has learnt to live with a cancer that is only manageable not currable, and then April 30 2015.... My Mom lost her fight.... Every year it just becomes even more Personal... I was always taught never to HATE............... But guess what? I... HATE.... EFFING.... CANCER!!!!! Last year as I settled into my new community in Golden, BC. I soon found out I could run but I couldn't hide...A little town in the Rockies plagued with Cancer... It is literally EVERWHERE!!! It seems there has been more tragedy than celebration lately .... It just doesn't seem right... We need to keep fighting for those that can't..... I NEED your help !
August 29-30 2015 I am Honoured to be riding again with my youngst son(16), Connor Scott, my Niece and "Cancer Survivor" Krissy Hutchings, along with my Amazing, and Passionate Wheelin' Warrior's of the North Team lead by Prince George's shiniest diamond, and someone I am proud to call my friend, Karin Piche. I proudly ride as a WARRIOR for the "TRUE WARRIORS" who continue to keep fighting the real fight.... I humbly ask for your support in my journey, big or small it doesn't matter.... every donation makes a difference...<3 Please help me help those that can't help themselves <3<3
I dedicate my 2015 ride to My beautiful Mom, Dolly, Jen, Phyllis, Neal, Grandpa#1, Grandpa #2, 2 lovely ladys in England, Aunty Pat and Aunty Margret, Roxanne, Nola rockin rollla, Rick, Debbie, Janet, Tom, Red, Dennis, Danny, Bubba, Sally, Joan, Linda,and Janie .... you are all pain free and always in our hearts but never forgotten ... RIP... Also To Ken, Uncle Buzz, Krissy, Jennifer, John, Kimberly, Sparrow, Bob, Phil, Paul, Courtney and Janice... You ARE all my heroes and in every sense of the words " True Warriors"..So... Keep kickin that Cancer ASS PEOPLE!!! <3
I Love You all , You ARE the reason I Continue to RIDE <3

The continuing story.... 2013 has been a bitter sweet year of tears and celebration... 1 clean bill of health( Can I get a HELL YA!!), 4 still fighting (TROOPERS, YOU CAN DO IT),2 new diagnosed (EFFING CANCER) and 1 (TOO MANY) RIP. BUT... TOGETHER we are making a DIFFERENCE!!!! The 2012 ride in BC we raised over $11 million. WOW!!! I "Thank You" for your generosity but we MUST keep fighting!!!
You know, I always try my best to look for the positive side of everything, even CANCER and I am a firm believer in fate and that everything happens for a reason. Last year I met an amazing woman named "Nola Rock'n Rolla" at the cancer clinic during Ken's treatments. She was Such a Character and had Such a vibrant Spirit. Even for that short time her life made such an impact on mine. I was so sad to find out that as I rode in the "2012 Ride to Conquer Cancer" Nola lost her battle to Cancer but, It's no surprise her kindred spirit has continued to work its magic. She is an Angel because threw her I was lead to an amazing group of people who have come together to fight the cause. WE are the”Wheelin Warriors of the North" and like Nola our team resonates VIBERANCE. I am very proud to be riding with such an empowered team of people. Our Goal is $100,000.00 and I hope we can count of your support this year big or small we'll appreciate it all. I am a "Wheelin Warrior of the North" so look our Seattle here we come to kick some “CANCER ASS”.
I dedicate my 2013 ride to My Mom. My husband Ken, My Uncle, My friends John and Courtney and our SHINING STAR from Above.....the one and ony "NOLA ROCK'N ROLLA"

Like many people, Cancer has plagued so MANY of the people in my life. Feeling helpless as you watch someone suffer from this horrible disease is the hardest, cruelest, and most painful thing I will ever endure in life. On June 16-17/2012 I am doing the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer benefiting BC Cancer Foundation, which is a two-day cycling journey, through Canada's Pacific region, along with my Niece Krissy, who is a cancer survivor, and her friend Lindsay who lost her little brother at the age of 5 to cancer in hopes to help fight back for the real heroes out there, Our family and friends who have lost their fight, those that are still continuing to fight, and those who are winning the fight against this nasty disease. And unfortunately the... list is VERY VERY LONG!
For me personally, it seems like yesterday, but it was 6 years ago when my world was turned upside down. Life was pretty good. I had 3 young and very active kids and 4 very busy, successful businesses when my husband Ken was diagnosed with Cancer. Now when most people here the acronym "NHL" they think Canada's greatest game, but to our family it means "Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma" A TREATABLE but NOT CURABLE CANCER, and what we as a family are faced to go to combat with for the rest of our lives. That was a tough and scary statement to get our heads around. A cancer that is only manageable. Ken's first treatment was over 7 months long and lasted for 5 years before it resurfaced for the second time. In that time we learnt to appreciate life on a daily basis and be grateful for the littlest things we are given because we just didn't know what tomorrow would bring. This past Christmas he was rediagnosed with "NHL"and started treatment in March 2012. He has 8 rounds of CVR-P (Cyclophosphamide, Vincristine, Prednisone, Rituximab) 21 days apart and has just completed round 4. We are 1/2 way there. I truly don't believe these words should be in anybody’s vocabulary. I am grateful for the advances they have made with the therapies used to manage NHL but my dream is that they find a cure for this treatable but not curable cancer. Today I humbly ask for your financial support in my quest to help make that dream come true. All funds raised on my website will go to "Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma". Big or small Every $$$$ counts.
We don't get to choose the cards we have been dealt we only get to choose how to play them. I am choosing to help fight back and I hope you will too.
Thank you in advance for your support,
Denise Scott 2012<3
