I'm Riding For

Brenda, Dad, and Andrew!

This was my message from last year...I think I'll keep it for this year. Still healing. Summer 2021 message: When children die, people tend to not want to talk about it. Nobody wants to deal with the pain. The problem is that by not talking, we can't heal, and we don't give ourselves the opportunity to talk about the good things and the happy memories. Last summer my dad gave me a wonderful gift. He told me a couple of wonderful stories about times he spent with Brenda. He talked about a time when she was able to find some joy while she was living in the hospital. Dad helped me to learn how to heal from a loss, and now I'm using that lesson to heal from losing him.

My Story

24 Jun 2022

This August I will be riding to raise money for the Sick Kids Foundation. They do amazing work that is incredibly important. Follow the links here and read more about what they do.

Cancer robbed my family of someone special when I was a kid. She was my aunt, but she wasn't much older than me. Growing up in the same house, she was more like a best friend and sibling to me. Losing Brenda was traumatic for the whole family and it left emotional scars that I didn't learn to deal with until 37 years later.

Brenda spent a lot of her time in the hospital. Like so many children with terminal cancers, the hospital became her home. The Sick Kids Foundation helps children like Brenda to have the best life they can possibly have, even when they are struggling with a terminal illness. It's not just about finding cures, it's about reducing suffering and bringing some joy to the lives of sick kids.

This year I'm also riding for Andrew. Andrew isn't exactly a kid, he's just sweet and innocent like a child. Like the pure driven snow. ;)
