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 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!
Unfortunately, cancer touches everyone’s life in some way or another. For me, my first close encounter with cancer was 23 years ago. I was 16 and my dad was diagnosed with testicular cancer. Through aggressive chemotherapy and radiation, he bravely fought and beat his cancer. My next encounter was 12 years ago when my niece Autumn was diagnosed with children’s leukemia at the tender age of 3. It was tragic to watch a small child grow through the struggle of fighting cancer, but she put up a very brave fight and is cancer free to this day. She is entering Grade 10 next year!
My most recent encounter, and the motivation of why I joined the ride this year, came in early December 2016. My sister-in-law was diagnosed with breast cancer, at only age 34. She is currently battling this terrible disease through chemotherapy. Everything is going well, but she still has many more months ahead of her.
Donations fund research, and research leads to finding ways to continue to combat cancer. I know that this research is the reason why I still get to have my Dad and my niece Autumn in my life, and why I will still be able to have my sister-in-law in my family’s life as well. To anyone who has every donated to cancer research, I thank you for your support.
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.
