I’m facing the fight against cancer.
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.

My personal connectionThis year my family have seen the impacts of cancer on a personal level. My wife’s best friend has been battling metastatic breast cancer since March 2020. The pandemic has made this fight even more challenging as she has endured many treatments alone and without the much needed support of family and friends. I am riding this year with the hopes that other families will not have to face this devastating disease and that we can have access to the best and most up to date treatments available. Share
