I’m facing the fight against cancer!

Nova Scotia has the highest cancer rates in all of Canada. 1 in 3 patients will not survive. To help combat these alarming stats, our BMO Ride for Cancer community is rallying like never before to introduce liquid biopsy technology that will help determine if a patient’s cancer is cured, if it has returned, and, if so, how best to treat it.

On Saturday, September 28, 2024, I’m riding alongside a community with one common goal: transforming local cancer care at the QEII Health Sciences Centre.  

Faster diagnosis saves lives, which is why BMO Ride for Cancer is on a mission to bring rapid cancer detection and monitoring to patients who have already undergone treatment. With a simple blood test that can happen anywhere in the province, QEII experts will use this revolutionary technology to uncover whether patients are cancer-free after surgery and the earliest signs if their cancer has returned.

This technology will be a game-changer. Life-changing benefits include:

  • improving survival rates and provide potential cures with earlier detection and personalized treatment options;
  • unlocking access to more clinical trials;
  • sparing patients from unnecessary treatments and harmful side effects;
  • keeping care closer to home and ensuring equitable access, as patients can undergo a simple blood test in any community in Nova Scotia;
  • reducing the number of visits required to the QEII, which ultimately impacts wait times;
  • providing critical answers about a patient’s cancer sooner, helping to relieve anxiety and worry; and much more.

By supporting my ride today, you are joining a community dedicated to moving the needle in cancer care for Nova Scotians. Your support will pave the way for a future of hope for all of us.

My Updates

No evidence of disease NED


 Unfortunately, my six-month scope and CT scan were cancelled in December and were rescheduled for January. My sigmoidoscopy showed no evidence of disease & my rectal contrast CT showed no leaks at my colon attachment site.
 
My surgical date for my stoma takedown surgery is March 19th.  I'm nervous about this next step. Is it the right choice for me? I keep reminding myself, that I'm one of the lucky ones who has choices.

I'm excited about the fundraising goal for 2024.  It's to bring liquid biopsy technology to Nova Scotia. Currently, the Nova Scotia Cancer Care model does not fund liquid biopsies. It short explanation is a simple blood test can detect signs of tumour cells and/or tumor DNA in patients that have had a hard tumour removed. Patients like me.

In 2024, our 10th anniversary year, our BMO Ride for Cancer community will unlock a new era of cancer care by funding liquid biopsy technology at the QEII Health Sciences Centre.

Nova Scotia has the highest cancer rates in all of Canada. 1 in 3 patients will not survive. To help combat these alarming stats, our BMO Ride for Cancer community is rallying like never before to introduce a non-invasive blood test that will determine if a patient’s cancer is cured if it has returned, and, if so, how best to treat it.

Faster diagnosis saves lives, which is why BMO Ride for Cancer is on a mission to bring rapid cancer detection and monitoring to patients who have already undergone treatment. With a simple blood test that can happen anywhere in the province, QEII experts will use a patient’s genetics to uncover whether they’re cancer-free after surgery and the earliest signs if their cancer has returned.
