Why I'm Riding For Team Finn
Finn was born in June of 2005, one minute after his brother Baird and less than three years after his sister Sarah. From early days Finn was a sweet, rambunctious, serious, active boy. He came by his love of speed, running, jumping, dancing and singing at an early age and those loves helped him keep his head up and chin forward through some very difficult times.
In February 2007, at around 20 months, Finn was diagnosed with a rare form of childhood cancer called Rhabdomyosarcoma. By the time the tumour was discovered, it was grapefruit sized. And so Finn’s medical journey began. A year of chemotherapy. Over 70 anesthetics. Numerous surgeries, big and small. Removal of the tumour. The introduction of a pee bag. The colostomy came later. Unblocking and stenting blocked ureters. Two months in Boston. Thirty radiation treatments. Specialized treatment in Spokane. There were definite peaks and valleys but through it all Finn kept speeding, running, jumping, dancing and singing, smiling and loving. Head up and chin forward.
On October 9, 2008, cancer took Finn’s life but it would never take his spirit
We start with kids because Finn was just a kid. No kid should have to go through what he had to endure. We start with kids because kids can’t fight cancer alone.
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.
