None of us knows when our time will come. We need to live bravely, love fiercely, and hold on to the things that matter. We need to tell those we care for how much they mean to us, and to do those things we always wanted to do. No matter how long we have on this earth, we need to truly live. Laurie Kingston

My Story

3 Jun 2022

This campaign focuses on kids with cancer and we should also remember that kids have parents that get cancer. And that can have a huge impact on them, regardless of the outcome. I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge in memory of one such parent, Laurie Kingston, whose two sons have lived with the illness and, since January, 2018, the loss of their mother.

This year I am thinking of the kids who were stolen from their parents — not by cancer — but by the RCMP and the Canadian government, sent to residential schools, and murdered. I will match donations made in August with a donation to the First Nations Child & Family Caring Society of Canada in their memory and to support this organization which seeks to bring justice and equality to Indigenous education.

    “Hi Hedda and Alasdair! Thanks so much for your most generous donation. I started week three today riding back from the lake after spending a lovely day off at the cottage with Irene. We went for a nice paddle around the lake (easily a couple of kilometres but alas those kilometres don't count). So far I am on track to make 2500km. Just have to stay fuelled and healthy. Hope you two are doing well and enjoying the last weeks of summer.”

    “Thank you Sandy. Much as I feel for the kids and the parents who are dealing with the disease, cancer research seems to me a bottomless pit whereas obtaining justice for Indigenous kids current and former seems solvable. Do-able. Indeed if we don't, I feel that as a society we are... well... fucked. ”
