Dear friends, family and colleagues,

This August I will be embarking on a cycling challenge. I have committed to participate in the Tour de Cure presented by Wheaton Precious Metals to help BC Cancer Foundation break down cancer.

Ten years ago, I was invited to join a ball hockey challenge to support cancer research. With your generous support, our team was able to finish second and draft Dave Babych to the team.

Fast forward to 2022, I have been asked to join, this time to a sport that is foreign to me - cycling. The last time I bought a bike was 16 years ago and that bike has been used more by others than me. I assumed the challenge was to ride 100 km (100 km divided by 10 riders) - 10 km. I got this. Without hesitation, I decided to join my friends to ride in this worthy cause.

The Tour de Cure is actually a 100 km team race where everyone rides together for 100 km. It will be a hard ride and it will be long, but it does not compare to the challenge of facing cancer.

For the past two years, we have been distracted by the pandemic. This ride has allowed me to re-focus on what is important in life. Cancer has affected us all in one form or another. We have been asked to put names on our jerseys for whom we will be riding for. Although there will be only one name on my jersey, I hope that name represents all of those that I have been blessed to be a part of and all of those that I continue to care for. In my career in medicine, I have found personal struggle caring for patients with cancer. Through this ride, I hope I can continue to work on gaining the emotional courage to help them through their journey.

Funds raised through the Tour de Cure will support life-saving research and enhancements to care at BC Cancer, bringing hope to cancer patients in British Columbia and making an impact around the world.

Please consider supporting me by making a gift today. Thank you so much for your support!
