I’m riding to beat cancer
This is very personal for you and me. I'm sure there isn’t a single person I know that hasn’t been touched by cancer. Whether it’s through a loved one, friend, family member or it’s much more personal, cancer is a terrible burden.
Having lost my first wife Carol to breast cancer in 2011, my wife Linda & I were rocked in 2020 when she was diagnosed with HER-2 positive breast cancer. Linda completed 15 months of intense treatment, much of which was made possible by years of painstaking research by dedicated professionals, just like the brilliant brains at the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research. We are both filled with gratitude for the hope of a long life together this treatment has given us. Also, we are humbled that so many people have not been so fortunate in the past to have access to such treatments.
The WA researchers at the Perkins are committed to finding answers faster and developing ground-breaking treatments for the hardest to treat cancers.
Because we don't want anyone to hear those two life-altering words, “It’s cancer.”
Having ridden for the past 2 years, I will once again be training, fundraising and cycling 200km in 2023 to support WA cancer research. But I’m not doing it alone, there’s 1,500 riders who will be returning, like my fellow Ortho Sistas team members. They do so not only because it’s lifechanging, but because the event feels like a big reunion - where all the guests are the family you love!
Your support has been amazing and incredibly generous over the past 2 years and I would be so grateful if you can support me again in 2023. I ride for Linda, for Carol, and for everyone impacted by cancer. This is our time to pay it forward, to give the same hope Linda & I have received to current and future generations, thanks to the work and sacrifices of those who came before us.
If you can’t join me (I’d love the company), please give generously via my fundraising page. Also, stay tuned for news of our big fundraising events over the next few months!
Together, we can help
make cancer history.
Please help me, help the Perkins.
So far this year I helped provide…
