I’m facing the fight against cancer!

On September 28, 2024, Team Mikey's Bikers will hit the trails for the eighth year in a row to help improve cancer care right here at home in Atlantic Canada! Thanks to the incredibly generous support of our family, friends, and co-workers, members of our team have raised $185,753 since 2016 to improve cancer care and support patients and their familes through some of the toughest moments of their lives.

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 bring liquid biopsy technology to the QEII Health Sciences Centre. This blood test, when combined with cutting-edge genetic sequencing, will help 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 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.
