Welcome to My Edward C Dillon Personal Page
Support My Ride to Conquer Cancer®
I have been encouraged to undertake a great challenge on August 26 & 27: The BC Ride to Conquer Cancer.
The BC Ride to Conquer Cancer is a TWO DAY ride from Vancouver to Seattle that covers 250 km. The riders travel 125 km on the first day … camp out overnight in a tent … & then ride the remaining 125 km the following day. All riders are asked to raise $2500 for this event. But the donations can be provided as a single payment … or … by instalments over the remainder of the calendar year… ie. $5 on the first of every month (July to December, 2017) = $30 for the sponsorship.
Why am I doing this? Because my father died of colon cancer & I want to try to help the research process of developing reliable cures & reliable preventative measures to rid mankind of this terrible experience. It will be difficult, but it will be nothing compared to what my father experienced every day for the rest of his life after being diagnosed with this terrible disease. He was diagnosed in October of 1993 & was dead on May 19 of the following year. The disease eventually spread to his liver, his tummy swelled up as if he was 9 months pregnant with twins & he was very sick. But he is in a better place now.
According to the American Cancer Society, there were 95,270 new cases of colon cancer in the U.S. in 2016. We need to try to reduce these numbers not only in the USA; but also in Canada & around the world. We also need to reduce the incidence of all cancers around the world.
And so I am taking on my own personal challenge to support cancer research & to give future mankind the brighter futures that they deserve.
But I need your help.
Please support my challenge and join me in the fight to save valuable lives by making a donation through my fundraising page:
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.
