That's going to be me and Mom soon!!
Like a lot of you, I have been struck by the devastation of cancer. I have lost 3 aunts to cancer. I hate that word. I wish I could erase it and never hear it again.
there are survivors. They are my family and my friends and I bet they
are your family and friends too. So, for them, and in memory of those
who we have all lost, I'm going to ride these kilometers along with a side kick this year... Amelia is joining me and I know the event will teach her the power of hope and community. The energy there last year was amazing!
Did you know that there are over 200 different types of cancer? And even among those different types, no two tumors or diagnoses are exactly alike. With 1 in 2 Atlantic Canadians facing a cancer diagnosis in their lifetime, now more than ever, it is time to identify the most targeted and effective treatments for cancer patients at the QEII Health Sciences Centre.
On Saturday, October 2, 2021, I’m riding alongside a community with one common goal: to transform cancer care, here at home — by ensuring the QEII's cancer centre has the best treatment options available.
With your support, we will be one step closer to introducing new state-of-the-art genetic sequencing technology at the QEII, to analyze the genes of thousands of tumour samples each year. Better outcomes, fewer side effects, access to a new therapy or clinical trial are all benefits this technology brings to cancer patients, here at home. It can even spare patients from unnecessary treatments. This is a game-changer for those patients facing late-stage cancers.
We’ve all been touched by cancer and when you support my ride, you are funding the fight against cancer for Atlantic Canadians today and for future generations.
