My Activity Tracking
Riding now for five dear friends, for my mom and my kid sister.
Today is the day!! All donations today only will be matched x3 i.e. $20 turns into $60. BIG thank you to those you have already donated so generously. Fundraising is going well, but thought I'd update my 2021 post. I'm riding for my five dear friends currently living with cancer, and always for my mom and sister Ann who passed away a few years ago. Patrick, Sophie, Gina, Willi and I are training hard for the October ride. I ride ~ 5 days a week, wind or rain. Already over 8200 km in 2021. I hope you'll support me again this year. It makes a huge difference to our health in Atlantic Canada. Trust me, I will ride hard again this year. THANK YOU ...
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.
