Support My Ride to Conquer Cancer®
I am a new team member of the Prince George Wheelin' Warriors Of The North, Ride To Conquer Cancer. This August we will challenge ourselves to a two-day cycling journey from Vancouver to Seattle! The Ride To Conquer Cancer has raised more than $77 million in eight years, making it BC's largest cycling fundraiser.
We have all been impacted by this dreadful disease, be it a family member, friend, co-worker, or perhaps yourself. Cancer knows no boundaries, no age limits, it attacks without prejudice and without reason. I have lost family to cancer. My volunteer work with the Canadian Cancer Society included fundraising activities, health promotion and advocating for prevention. You want to help move the fight forward, to end cancer.
Nothing could have prepared me for the shocking news that Regan has breast cancer. Someone so young, so very healthy and fit. It's devastating. I can't imagine her shock and disbelief.
It broke my heart to see her struggle through this nightmare, all those intensive chemotherapy treatments, then the surgery. Oh my gosh, no one should EVER have to go through this. She's a fighter, determined to 'kick cancer's ass' and do whatever is necessary to beat this disease. I so admire her spirit and her determination. And there's JJ, right by her side,for every appointment, every treatment, the spokesperson, managing the logistics of treatments, his emotional support. So much to do. They do have a huge support network of family and friends that they truly value.
It is Regan's positive outlook, her strength to persevere, her beautiful smile that has inspired me to create an awareness to others that cancer can be beaten, and it is. One of the Priority Projects that the BC Cancer Foundation is committed to funding is the Breast Cancer Research Initiative to genomically sequence every single breast cancer patients tumour at the time of diagnosis, province-wide.
You can help me to raise funds for this and other critical research by donating to my Ride To Conquer Cancer. Together we can make a difference for Regan, and JJ. To their future, and to others.
All the riders are committed to raising $2500. Every donation counts whether it be $5. or $100. Your donation can be made on-line using the link on this page or in person with cash or cheque. You can click the Printable Donation Form for a tax receipt.
I am very proud to be a part of this wonderful, energetic, inspiring, supportive Wheelin' Warriors of the North team. They are so committed to raising funds to support life-saving research through their numerous fund raising activities. This team, lead by Karin Piche, has raised HALF A MILLION DOLLARS for cancer research since 2013!
Thank you for your support.
