Support My Ride to Conquer Cancer®
Welcome to my Personal Page! The Ride to Conquer Cancer presented by Silver Wheaton benefiting BC Cancer Foundation, is a two-day cycling journey, through the beautiful Pacific region taking place in the summer. It will be a challenge in a number of ways, but with my bike, my helmet, and your generosity, a real impact will be made!
WHY I RIDE
Recently I lost someone very dear to my heart. Shannon's battle with cancer ended on December 20th, 2015. She was spirited and kind; when Robert and I first got together she welcomed me into her life and home with open, loving arms. We bonded instantly over our love of animals and nature. When Shannon was first diagnosed, it was very upsetting but she constantly kept a positive attitude and NEVER stopped cracking jokes. She was able to see the good when things seemed bad, and no matter what, she always managed to make everyone laugh. Shannon was an avid supporter of To The Max and this cause. I remember going down to Seattle with Shannon to watch Robert's first ride and how proud she was of him and all his teammates. When things got tough and didn't look too good, Shannon would tell me not to cry and to stay positive. Due to her optimism and toughness, Shannon's journey continued on longer than the doctors expected. She fought hard until the very end.
You touched the lives of everyone who knew you, I will never forget you, and now I will ride for you.
This cause is very important to me so I hope you can contribute to this powerful movement with a donation or by joining the ride! I am looking forward to completing the ride with my teammates from To The Max Cycling Club. Funds raised through the Ride to Conquer Cancer will support life-saving research and enhancements to care at the BC Cancer Agency, bringing hope to cancer patients in B.C. and beyond.
Thank you in advance for your help!
