Riding in memory of my 5-year old daughter, Emma
Support My Ride to Conquer Cancer®
I am riding in memory of my hilarious, brave, and wonderful 5-year old daughter Emma. Cancer conquered Emma's body, but it will never conquer her spirit!
Emma was diagnosed with a rare and malignant brain tumour in summer 2016. After a successful brain surgery, 8 grueling months of chemo, and a stem cell transplant, she was in the remission for the better part of a year.
Then, this past December, an MRI discovered that tumours have returned now to her brain and spine. She passed away at home on March 7, 2018 - one day shy of her turning 5 and a half.
We are as motivated as ever to raise money to fuel the vital research that will fight this disease.
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. I will be raising money to conquer childhood cancers.
Emma has always loved riding bikes, and as her dad I've loved taking her for long rides around the city on the back of my bike. Little Emma spent more than 125 days and nights in the hospital fighting cancer. She spent many hours riding her bike down long, empty hospital hallways, attached to a huge medication pole (we would run next to her, pushing it along, trying to keep up!). On days she was not allowed to leave her room, the hospital provided her with a stationary bike so she could keep riding. I will be thinking of her, her bravery, and her love for riding all the way to Hope.
Thank you in advance for your help.
