I'm Riding For

Dylan

Dylan

I’m riding for my nephew Dylan, who spent 14 years living his life to the fullest even though he was battling cancer (and the nasty side affects from years of “adult based” chemotherapy and radiation). At 19 months he was diagnosed with “Bilateral Retinoblastoma”- cancer in both eyes. He fought and won that battle after 6 years of intensive protocols, the loss of his left eye and 0/400 vision. Within a few years, osteosarcoma in his left upper arm was found. Once again he endured the surgery and harsh chemotherapy. Through all this, he continued his schooling, his hobbies and spending as much time socializing with his friends. Unfortunately, at the age of 14, Dylan’s cancer metastasized into his lungs, followed by numerous surgeries over 18 months. After his courageous fight to beat this disease, Dylan passed away at the age of 16. That was May 29, 2008 and whenever I think of him, I remember his wit, smiles, hugs and unselfishness. His cancer did not define him!

My Story

18 Jun 2020

This August, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!

Why? Because right now, over 1,400 children are diagnosed with cancer every year, and it's the biggest killer of children from disease in Canada.

Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

So I am raising funds through my challenge to help these kids and support SickKids Foundation to allow them to continue their work in developing “child oriented” treatments and finding a cure for childhood cancer.

Please support me by making a donation to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

Your support will change little lives.

Thank you.

  • The support keeps “rolling” in! 🙌💸👍
    2 Sep 2020

    Even though the Official GCC August ride is over, I’m still receiving kudos, cash and thumbs up from friends far and wide.

    I truly appreciate the kind words of support.

    They have pushed out of my funk and onto my bike to ride in all kinds of weather.

    They have also pushed me out of my comfort zone to write emails and post on Facebook requests for donations to help me raise money to for “children’s cancer research and treatments.”

    As September is “Childhood Cancer Awareness Month” in the 🇺🇸 and 🇨🇦, I’ll still be hoping on my bike 🚲 or logging miles on foot for the kids!

    My GCC page will still be open for the next three weeks to receive any words of encouragement or donations to KICK CANCERS BUTT!

    Thank you all so very much.

    Be Kind. Be Calm. Be Safe. ❤️

    The support keeps “rolling” in! 🙌💸👍

  • Surpassed my 4th fundraising goal! THANK YOU 😊
    25 Aug 2020

    Without the support of many friends from within Prince George, British Columbia, Canada 🇨🇦, and the USA 🇺🇸, I would not have surpassed my initial goal of $1000.

    Thanks to you all, I’ve surpassed my fourth goal of $5,500!

    I’m increasing my fundraising goal once again, and will continue to ride to help fund the research to fight kids cancer. Please continue to support me by spreading the word about my ride.

    Thanks again for your support!

    Surpassed my 4th fundraising goal!  THANK YOU 😊

  • Rainy ride day
    7 Aug 2020

    After a rest day and not sure if we’ll be seeing rain 🌧 as the norm again, pulled out my mountain bike and did some wet riding off road to get to my favourite place!

    All alone at Lheidli T’enneh Park. Peaceful hour break to take it all in ☮️
