Please support me in the Tour de Cure!
Inspired by my sister, Colette, who is now facing cancer for the second time in her life, I have committed to cycling in the Tour de Cure to raise funds for the BC Cancer Foundation.
Ten years ago, a team of us, including Colette, rode in the Ride to Conquer Cancer to amongst many things, celebrate Colette's 20th anniversary of overcoming a rare T-cell lymphoma. As a team, we raised $39K and had the opportunity to reflect on all the people in our lives who at some time were challenged with cancer. Now Colette is facing a new, but also rare, ampullary cancer diagnosis. She is six weeks beyond a life saving surgery and doing very well. As she embarks on her chemo, I know that my ride and the funds I raise will mean a lot to her.
Funds raised through the Tour de Cure will support life-saving research and enhancements to care at BC Cancer, bring hope to cancer patients in BC and make an impact around the world.
Thank you in advance for any contribution you are able to make and know that it motivates me in the challenge that lies ahead.
