Hi! My name is Heather and I'm doing the ride to conquer cancer.
We all sadly have connections to someone with cancer. My personal connections are that I am a chemotherapy nurse (moving into clinical trials soon - helping to further the research!), my uncle battled Prostate Cancer, and my father has battled Laryngeal cancer and now stage IV Lung cancer.
In my job, I treat young mothers like myself, fathers like my own, grandparents, brothers, sisters and friends... Cancer doesn't discriminate. I learn so much from my patients who show hope and positivity, in times I couldn't imagine having the strength.
I've chosen to join the ride to conquer cancer, riding from Vancouver to Seattle, with the hopes to raise awareness and support for cancer research and treatments. Each person I treat is someone's loved one, and I want to help give them more quality time.
I'd love your support! Anything will help :) if not financial, tell people about me and cheer me on!
