Support My Ride to Conquer Cancer®
To all my friends and family,
If you are on this page then you are already a huge step of the way towards helping support the BC Cancer Society - so way to go! The ride to Conquer Cancer is a two-day cycling journey from Vancouver to Seattle with funds raised going directly to support life-saving research and enhancements to care at the BC Cancer Agency. I hope the least I can do is get your help to monetize my sweat and pedaling in support of this great cause!
The challenge of biking is no substitute for the challenge and determination it takes to go through cancer treatment, of which too many of my close friends and family have done. I am doing this ride to support those strong people who may or may not still be with us, but will definitely still be along for the ride.
Our close family friends, the Smiths, lost their mom - Lisa Smith - to a brain tumour just a year ago and I am doing this in honour of her. Lisa was my second mom because our families spent so much time together growing up: she disiplined me, fed me, and taught me many lyrics of classic campfires songs! I still think of her often and imagine her tenacity, strength and warm smile. My mom once said she admired Lisa's love for her friends and family so much because Lisa was the kind of person that if she ever won the lottery she would use the money to throw a huge party for her friends and family instead of buying something luxurious.
So with that in mind I ride to support Lisa and I ride to brings funds to such a great cause. I want to preserve her memory and help others battle unsurmountable diagnosies.
No amount is too big or small so do not hesitate to donate whatever you feel comfortable doing.
