Steph Florian: Touched for the Very First Time
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!
I have been fortunate, not until recently has myself or any member or my family been diagnosed with cancer. I knew I had been lucky but I also knew that it would undoubtedly happen at some point in my life. Well that point, that moment arrived out of the blue sooner than I had ever hoped. Not one but three immediate family members, all father figures in my life were hit hard with the 'C' word.
My dearest uncle Doogie was diagnosed with a rare form of blood cancer, my Father In Law Rod with mantel cell lymphoma and my step Dad Reid with prostate cancer. Even though many friends and aquaintances had gone though cancer battles, I could not relate to the scope of the devastation and fight that was ahead of us as a family. Fortunately all of these men are still with me but the fight is not over...in fact it has just begun. Fighting cancer together has become the common thread that bonds us all together. Love, support, positivity, stregths of will and character... that is what it takes to keep fighting and never giving even when life throws you a curveball like cancer.
I ask you to please help me 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.
