Welcome to Noel's Fundraising Page to Conquer Cancer on behalf of Rachel Hazlett
Support My Ride to Conquer Cancer® on behalf of Rachel Hazlett
I'm riding this event to raise research funds on behalf of Rachel Hazlett - benefiting BC Cancer Foundation. This event is a a two-day cycling journey, through the beautiful Pacific Northwest 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!
Rachel Hazlett, a mechanical engineer working as a manager with Shell in Calgary, was diagnosed with breast cancer in July 2014. Following a single breast mastectomy and several months of chemotherapy she returned to full time work in February 2015. A successful marathon and iron man triathlon participant, she found it a struggle to return to her previous active lifestyle. In July 2016, her oncologist discharged her from care, but by the end of August she was in Calgary's Foothills hospital with acute liver failure - a diagnosis of stage 4 metastatic cancer in her liver, bones and lungs followed. Facing an uncertain future, she married her long time partner, Kaymin in September and started chemotherapy the next day. Six months later, the latest set of scans shows some reduction in tumour size. At 37 years old, she hopes that continuing treatment will give her more time to enjoy life with family and friends...
Please 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 like Rachel.
Thank you in advance for your help.
