Wheelin for Whelan
We need YOU to help us conquer cancer.
Every single person on our team has a reason why they signed up for The Ride to Conquer Cancer. Many people have individual stories of loved ones who have fought cancer but our team is brought together in honour of Dr. Paul Whelan. Paul was a Urologist. He took great care of many cancer patients. He had a great career as an academic and community Urologist and he became an Executive Medical Director of Vancouver Island Health Authority where for him a great goal was improving access to care for cancer patients. Paul fought for cancer patients on many levels. The relationships he developed with his patients are what motivated him to sign up for and train for the BC Ride to Conquer Cancer and he planned to ride in 2018. The day after Paul did a 96km training ride for that 2018 BC Ride to Conquer Cancer he was diagnosed with a brain tumor. After much bravery enduring a year of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, our colleague, Dr. Paul Whelan passed away on June 29, 2018.
He was never able to complete his goal.
Please join ‘Wheelin for Whelan’ to honour what Paul stood for.
