Welcome to My Personal Page
Thank you for any donation! This year I will be directing my fundraising to the Cancer Research Program at the Ottawa Hospital.
Recently, I was helping my mother fill out her family medical history as she was being assessed for possible lung cancer. My mother was confirmed to have lung cancer and is currently undergoing radiation therapy and we are all hopeful and optimistic that this will keep it at bay. What struck me when I was going through our family's medical history was the number of relatives who were touched by cancer...my maternal grandfather and grandmother, all three of my uncles, my aunt, my mum, my dad and my wife and partner, Amy.
While several of my relations have succumbed to cancer, more than half are survivors and I hope my mum proves to be in this category. So there is hope, there has been progress, but we desperately need to push the research forward so that new innovations will place more and more cancer patients into the "survivors' category". This is for you, for me, and for everyone that matters in our lives.
On September 9, 2018, I'll be taking part in THE RIDE and pedalling across the finish line in support of cancer research at The Ottawa Hospital.
I’m raising funds to make a difference for all of us, because at the end of the day, our health matters. Support my efforts by making a donation today.
