As a member of the Alberta Cancer Foundation, I am absolutely delighted (and a little terrified!) to be joining Linnea's Legion for the 10th epic Ride to Conquer Cancer!
In addition to Linnea and the countless other Albertans who have faced this terrible disease, my mother, Maria Victoria, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013.
I will be dedicating my Ride to my mom (who will be 5 years cancer-free this coming August 2018!) and the staff of the Cross Cancer Institute who took such amazing care of her during that uncertain time four years ago.
P.S. Don't let the sombreros fool you. My mom is 100% Colombian. Let's just say I am hoping to channel some of my people's skills on the road bike - fingers crossed!
