My Message

I remember a story of a young boy throwing starfish back into the ocean at high tide. The tide has left them stranded. An older man was watching the young boy, and finally said to him" Why are you doing this? There are hundreds of thousands of starfish..you can't possibly make a difference. The boy looked at the old man, then at the starfish and said "it makes a difference to THIS one. Maybe its my donation, or yours...that makes the difference !!

Why am I riding from Coast to Coast?  Someone once said "WE RIDE BECAUSE WE CAN" and we do it for THOSE WHO CAN'T.  I suspect that at some level of family or friends we all have been touched by someone dealilng with Cancer.  This terrible disease knows no limits. It attacks indescriminatly across age, gender, sex, race and religion. It attacks our youngest, our most vulnerable, and it seems at  times that we are powerless. But we need to raise awareness, to contribute to the cause...to find the cure!!!

By choosing to participate as a national rider, I hope to bring even more awareness to the need of helping these children who should not have to have this in thier lives.

At any given time, cancer holds 10,000 Canadian children in its grip. It robs them, and their families, of the laughter and joy that should be part of every childhood. Riding in the Sears National Kids Cancer Ride will channel my physical, mental and emotional energy into something much greater – helping brave children return to life as regular kids again. I'll share the road with a team of cyclists, united in our commitment to the childhood cancer community. Your support is welcome and needed. Please join me in this powerful and inspiring experience by helping to fund important childhood cancer charities across Canada.

About Childhood Cancer: The causes of childhood cancers are, in most cases, unknown. The types of cancers that occur in children vary greatly from those seen in adults. They tend to occur in different parts of the body, and they respond differently to treatment. Leukemias, brain and other nervous system tumours, lymphomas (lymph node cancers), bone cancers, soft tissue sarcomas, and adrenal gland cancers are the most common cancers of children. In the early 1950s, less than 10 percent of childhood cancer patients could be cured. Today, more than 80 percent of children diagnosed with cancer become long-term survivors and the majority of them are considered cured. However, 60% of survivors have long lasting impacts due to the impact of treatments or their cancer. The Sears National Kids Cancer Ride will fund research and other programs that improve the lives of children living with cancer.
