Support My Ride to Conquer Cancer®
Welcome to my Personal Page! 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!
Like many of you reading this, cancer has impacted me personally. In 1993 I lost my mom, Judith Csillag after a year-long battle with lung cancer. A beloved mother and wife, she showed strength and determination in her struggle to beat cancer. As a young woman, I blamed the big "C" for rendering me a motherless daughter. In 2008, cancer again crept in to my life and stole away my dear father-in-law, Rick Wong. Loved fiercely by his wife, three sons and two grandchildren he fought valiantly but eventually lost his battle.
I ride in memory of them. I ride to honour them.
Cancer tried a third time, when my brother, Andrew was diagnosed with oral cancer. With advances in treatment and aggressive therapy, he is cancer-free.
I ride to honour his strength and courage.
Cancer can and must be beaten.
Please, if you can, I ask you to 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.
With my sincerest appreciation,
