Support My Ride to Conquer Cancer®
Welcome. For a number of years now cancer has has spread throughout my family. My brother Lance Stevens passed away from a rare form of bladder cancer that spread to his kidneys, lungs and brain, this past spring. My sister-in-law Alan Bruce has battled breast cancer for over 10 years now. My brother-in-law Donny Schnmidt, was also diagniosed with bladder cancer last year but currently has a postive prognoisis. All are 50 and under. To watch Alana, Lance, and Donny, as well as friends such as Donna Jenner battle through significant trials and tribulations is a testament to who they are as individuals and to the critical support that BC Cancer has brought to them throughout their treatment.
As a family member, there is only so much we are able to do besides offering support and encouragement. So, in honour of Alana, Lance, Donny, Donna and many other unmentioned friends and family, I have once again committed to participating in The Ride to Conquer Cancer presented by Silver Wheaton benefiting BC Cancer Foundation. This year, the two day journey has riders cycling from Cloverdale, through Langley, Aldergrove, Abbotsford, Chilliwack and on to the final destination of Hope August 25th-26th. To increase the challange, I will be particpating in the Day 1 Challange course, covering over 167km with 1120m of evelation, before setting off on Day 2 to Hope from our starting point of Chilliwack. It will be a challenge in a number of ways but with your support and knowing that this challenge is nothing in comparison to what Alana, Lance, Donny and Donna have had to endure, I hope to be part of making an impact, not only for my family and but also for those that BC Cancer support!
You can support me through your encouragement on my facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/michaelbuckingham and if you would like to contribute to this powerful movement you can make 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 encouragement and support.
