Please support me in the Tour de Cure!

August 2022, I will be embarking my 10th cycling challenge. I have committed to participate in the Tour de Cure to help the BC Cancer Foundation break down cancer.

The BC Cancer Foundaton is a leader in research and treatment development for cancer. There are constantly new diagnostic and treatment options being developed. Over the course of my time riding, I have personally met people who have benefited from these developments. One person told a story of travelling to multiple hospitals in the states to get state of the art treatment and being directed back to BC where through treatment, his cancer has been stabilized.

My Step mom died of small cell lung cancer ( non smokers) 6 years ago. She received her diagnosis the weekend I embarked on my first ride for cancer. Through targeted therapy she gained 3 years. We made the most of that time. Taking the journey with her to end stage is something that will be with me forever. She did it with grace and joy in each part of the journey. It is for her that I ride and for people I constantly meet who have been affected in one way or another. I know the BC Cancer Foundation rocks and I stand behind their development for all of our benefit.

Please consider a charitable donation to a cause that is so widespread. I am sincerely grateful for each and every one of you who has supported me on this journey through the years. Thank you for making a difference.
