I’m facing the fight against cancer!

What if we could destroy cancer using a patient’s own immune system? What if we could cure at least half of all eligible blood cancer patients? Yes, I said cure.  When you support my ride today, we’re one step closer to making these bold aspirations a reality.

On Saturday, September 23, 2023, I’m riding alongside a community with one common goal: to transform local cancer care at the QEII Health Sciences Centre.  

This year, we’re going to be bolder than ever before…our BMO Ride for Cancer community is all in! With your support, we’ll establish Atlantic Canada’s first-ever CAR-T therapy lab, a state-of-the-art space dedicated to genetically modifying a patient’s own immune cells (T-cells) to fight their cancer with unparalleled personalization and accuracy.

This revolutionary and lifesaving immunotherapy is a final lifeline and potential cure for certain blood cancer patients who’ve tried all other treatment options.

Benefits include faster treatment times, minimizing disruption to families’ lives, more clinical trials, and, most importantly, offering a potentially lifesaving treatment option to certain blood cancer patients who otherwise would not survive.

By supporting my ride, you are joining a community of champions funding the fight against cancer today and for future generations.

If you could save someone’s life, why wouldn’t you?

My Updates

Getting "ready"

As usual, my "training" has not been what I had hoped, particularly after I was coerced into attempting the 130km ride this year. 

With the Ride five days out, my road bike is still in my basement, where it has sat since last year's Ride.

Nonetheless, the Ride is not comparable to what people diagnosed with cancer (and their families) are faced with. And the statistics remain alarming - roughly every other person in Atlantic Canada will receive such a diagnosis someday.

Like every year, I have a few more people in my thoughts, along with their families. Again, I ride inspired.

Thank you to my Supporters
