Support My Ride to Conquer Cancer®
Hello everyone and welcome to my page. I am participating in the annual ”Ride to Conquer Cancer” as a member of the Victoria Fire Department team. We are riding in support of our retired chief, Doug Angrove, who recently passed away from cancer. Doug was a respected member of our department and will be greatly missed.
This is a two day journey from Vancouver to Seattle. Our aim is to show support to Doug’s family for their loss, and to raise money for the BC Cancer Foundation. It seems that everyone has been touched by cancer either through a personal event, family member, or close acquaintance.
I personally witnessed the devastating effects that battling cancer can do to a family. My wife Lucinda went through the journey of breast cancer 4 years ago. It was traumatic for me and our kids to have someone so important to us possibly lose their life. We had to watch as Lucinda had a double lumpectomy, radiation, chemotherapy, and to this day still has to take medications to ensure the cancer does not return.
It was a helpless feeling taking her to emergency in the middle of the night because of the complications from chemo therapy. Our family was very worried. Thankfully for us Lucinda was determined and managed to beat the disease.
This ride is my way to show support for those who have had to battle cancer. Please donate to this worthy cause so that treatments and research can be funded to cure this disease. Any donation is greatly appreciated and thank-you for your support.
Thanks for your help,
