I’ll be riding for Tayla Van Ryt to beat Poems Syndrome

This year I will be riding for my Auntie Tayla who has been battling Poems Syndrome which is a rare blood disorder that damages your nerves and affects other parts of your body. POEMS stands for these signs and symptoms: Polyneuropathy. Numbness, tingling and weakness in your legs - and over time, maybe in your hands - and difficulty breathing 

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.

In 2023, I’m taking a stand against cancer and backing the brilliant brains at the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research.

These WA researchers are committed to finding answers faster and developing ground-breaking treatments for the hardest to treat cancers.

Because no one should have to hear those two life-altering words, “It’s cancer.”

I’m training, fundraising and riding 200km 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. 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!

I’d be so grateful for your support.

If you can’t join me (I’d love the company), please give generously to my fundraising page.

Together, we can help make cancer history.
