I’m riding for Linda and to give hope by paying it forward
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 has completed 15 months of surgery and intensive treatment, much of which has been 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 jumped on board in 2021, I will once again be training, fundraising and riding 200km in 2022 to support WA cancer research. But I’m not doing it alone, there’s a growing group of riders who return year after year to this ride, 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 was amazing and incredibly generous in 2021 and I would be so grateful if you can support me again in 2022. 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 to my fundraising page. We also have some big fundraising event plans for 2022, so stay tuned!
Together, we can help make cancer history.
Please help me, help the Perkins.
So far this year I helped provide…
