Ride to Conquer Cancer | It was 4 years ago today that I lost my mom. The hole left from her passing is immense, I know it will always be there. This is the last picture I have of her and I together, Christmas 5 years ago. Less than a year later this seemingly healthy and vibrant woman would loose her fierce 3 month battle with cancer. It was so incredibly shocking and devastating, she was one of my very best friends. So I do what I can to help in the battle of this terrible disease. Sometimes it’s through donation, trying to help comfort those fighting or encourage anyone who will listen to choose a healthier lifestyle in hopes of prevention. This year I’ve decided to sign up to do the BC Ride for Cancer, a 200km bike ride from Vancouver to Hope. I am here because of my beautiful mom and I dedicate my ride to her, but I’m doing it for all of us. I don’t know a single person that hasn’t been affected in one way or another from cancer. I do know that even with trying to live a healthy existence we still very much need science and technology in this fight. I hope that you might consider supporting me on my journey. A very heartfelt thank you to any and all who consider chipping in :) PS I know this isn’t the best time of year to be looking for donations (or maybe it is?). It was important to me to start my drive today, in memory of my sweet mom, and I didn’t get to pick the day. You can always find me in the new year, I have until August :) xo If you’re inspired to donate here is the link to my page : https://bit.ly/2zJ0Xpg
