Wish You Were Here
I am back for my 6th Ride to Conquer Cancer, please help me reach my goal of $2500 for the sixth year and lets save some more lives!
2009 and 2010 gave me some of the greatest gains of my life (Post Secondary Graduation, First Job, Olympics 2010..) however it also delivered the greatest losses in the passing of my Grandfathers Ted Hope and William Kinley, Grandmother Patricia Hope and my two beloved Dogs, Riley and Reece. The culprit? Cancer.
Ted Hope passed away in June of 2009 after a battle with Colon Cancer.
William Kinley passed away in May of 2010 Skin Cancer.
Reece (Golden Retriever) passed away in October of 2009 after a short struggle with Lymphoma.
Riley (Golden Retriever) finally passed after a 3 year battle with Osteosarcoma(Bone Cancer) in January of 2011.
On March 26, 2011 my Grandmother Patricia Hope passed away from Brain Cancer, she was 79 years old.
Cancer effects everyone we love from our pets to our parents, no one is immune to its far reaching grasps. Lucky are the ones like myself that have slipped through its fingers, and for those less fortunate there is hope, and it is growing every day.
Cancers that were killers 10 years ago are now becoming treatable, with thanks to the research and staff at medical facilities world wide. They are doing far more than their fair share of the work it is now our turn to step up to the plate.
I am doing this for everyone who's not here, but in particular of course for my Family.
