My 4th year, Hoping it's the best one
"What if we could reduce radiation treatments from 25 to five for certain cancers? Condense up to seven weeks of daily radiotherapy treatment sessions to just one week or less? When you support my ride today, we’re one step closer to making these bold aspirations a reality.
On Saturday, October 1, 2022, I’m riding alongside a community with one common goal: to transform local cancer care, by helping fund a world’s first cancer-fighting technology at the QEII Health Sciences Centre.
This year will be extraordinary…our BMO Ride for Cancer community is all in! With your support, we’ll help introduce a first-in-the-world cancer treatment option, called personalized radiotherapy. Pioneered and invented right here in Nova Scotia at the QEII, this technology has the potential to transform the radiation treatment journeys for Atlantic Canadians facing a cancer diagnosis".
That's the canned part of the post. It's all important information. But for me, having lost 2 people very close to me in the last year because of cancer, I'm doing this for them and for everyone who has survived it or lost their battle; for our brothers, sisters, grandparents, aunts, uncles, moms, dads, partners and pets (yes, they get cancer too).
We've seen incredible innovation over the last two years in the medical field. I think that this can be beaten. If we can help these amazing people do that, why wouldn't we?
It's in memory and honour of all of these amazing people that I do this.
