Please support my Ride for Cancer Research ( RIDE NUMBER 8 )
Everyone has been touched by cancer sometime in their lives. Whether the diagnosis is a loved one, family member or it’s much, much more personal, cancer is a terrible burden. I am dedicating my participation in this event to my dear MUM who passed away in 2009 with cancer and to all past and present people affected by cancer and also to the tireless researchers at Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research. Since the year 2000 I have the privilege to work alongside them and see how motivated and inspirational they are.
In 2010, the importance of medical research really came home to me. After being diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinomas in the past, the big one hit me - a melanoma. You never want to hear that word cancer and I was no different. I had the melanoma removed and now will spend the rest of my life having regular checks. I am one of the lucky ones, but you still live with the worst thoughts sitting at the back of your mind hoping that it does not strike again!
This year, I am joining over 800 riders in a 2-day, 200km bike ride to raise funds for cancer research right here in WA at the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research.
I am training and fundraising in the lead up to the event. I'd love your support. If you can't join me (I'd love the company), please give generously to my donation page.
Please help me, help the Perkins.
Thank you kindly
Cheers and Regards
