Jacob plays first saxophone in the world-famous Burlington Teen Tour Band. His passion for the band and music in general is an inspiration. An excellent student, Jacob also aspires to be a leader in all things dramatic. His bright future needs to be secured by full recovery!

My Story

6 Jun 2020

This August, I will be riding again in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!

This year, I am riding to CELEBRATE the tremendous progress that our grandson, Jacob, has made in this past year. He still has lots of rehabilitation remaining to accomplish his goals but his recent scans show him to be free of cancer - Yippee!

I am also riding with GRATITUDE - to say thank you to the oncology, surgical and rehab teams and all the other hospital staff at SickKids in Toronto, McMaster Kids in Hamilton and the Holland-Bloorview Rehabilitation Hospital for their tremendous skill and dedication to Jacob’s care and recovery.

And I am riding to provide HOPE. Because cancer is the largest killer of children from disease in Canada, and over 1,400 children are diagnosed with cancer every year.
