Riding for the Cure!
Support My Ride to Conquer Cancer®
Once again, Dwain and I have joined the Melanoma Warriors in the ‘Ride to Conquer Cancer’. Last year the ride raised over 7 million dollars towards research and funding for new treatments for all types of this disease.
In 2008, I lost a very important person in my life to cancer, my sister Darlene. She was only 44 years old. My Aunt Anne, sadly, past away last week after a long battle with cancer. My Uncle Ken was diagnosed with cancer a few years ago and is currentlly going through various, difficult treatments. My hope is that with new discoveries, cancer will one day be a thing of the past. Currently, one in two people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime and so most people have been affected by cancer in some way. The Ride to Conquer Cancer is one of the largest fundraisers of the BC Cancer Foundation and the contributions enable leading-edge research that has a direct impact on improvements to cancer care for patients in British Columbia.
The young man that we are riding with, Chris, is living proof to why cancer research is so important. It was not long ago that Chris was gravely ill and now he is preparing for his second 250 km Ride. This is due to new treatments in immunotherapy; all made possible by fundraisers like these.
The Ride to Conquer Cancer benefiting BC Cancer Foundation, is a two-day cycling journey, through the beautiful 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!
Contribute to this powerful movement 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.
Together we can make a difference in this fight against cancer!
