Support My Ride to Conquer Cancer®
Welcome to my personal page. The Ride to Conquer Cancer presented by Silver Weaton benefiting BC Cancer Foundation, is a two day cycling event covering 250 km. We will ride from Cloverdale, BC to Seattle WA. , overnighting in Mt. Vernon WA.
This will be my second ride. While I found the ride challenging last year, I was motivated by all of my supporters. Together we raised $3200.
This year my niece, Sarah Pickerill's daughter Tegan was admitted to BC Children's Hospital with cancer. Tegan is four years old. Tim and Sarah's lives have drastically changed. I will be riding to support and honour little Tegan in her difficult journey battling this disease. I have asked Sarah to be part of my personal page and share their story with us.
Tegan was diagnosed with ALL leukemia on March 6th 2017. In a matter of hours we were whisked away from our home life and told we wouldn't be returning until possibly November. Tegan has faced a few extra challenges than most since birth; arriving with her twin sister Tenley 3 months early weighing a mere 2 lbs each, being born with an extra super hero chromosome aka Down syndrome, having heart surgery last year to close a large defect and now her biggest battle yet, fighting cancer.
With all that she has been dealt she is still the strongest and most driven little girl with the biggest smile. She is truly an inspiration to all and has been a huge blessing to our lives. This journey is one that most never get to see (thankfully) but we have met many who sadly have and are on their own journeys with cancer. These unlikely friends have now become our family. We understand one another in ways others never will and we support each other any way we can. We see it all here on the front line and we unfortunately see things we wish we didn't have to. This is reality.
We are so grateful and honoured that my Uncle has chosen to ride for Tegan. I have asked him however to not only ride for Tegan, but to ride for all of the children and families who lives have touched ours and are battling these front lines with us or have already been to battle. We are in this together.
***Please contribute to this powerful movement with a donation. Funds raised through the Ride To Conquer Cancer will support life-saving research and enhancements for care at the BC Cancer Agency, bringing hope to cancer patients in BC and beyond.
I would like to thank my friends and family in advance for your generous support. The funds raised on behalf of Tegan and the children at Children's hospital will go towards Pediatric cancer research helping children.
Thank you, Barrie
