Addy

Addy

“Addison’s experience with cancer has taken so much from her over the past five months, but it has not taken away her positive energy, great sense of humor and huge heart. She never fails to make her SickKids team smile. Some of her favourite things include basketball, cuddling her dog Nova, creating TikToks with her sister and friends, and enjoying the outdoors." Let's break some records for Sarcoma research 💛 and we are honoured to be biking for her!

My Story

16 Jul 2022

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

The kids and I are planning to bike 50+ km this August! We are starting small but hope to add some KM and make it to 75 or even 100km! But we’ll see! 😉

We know friends and family that have taken part in this great event but this summer it hits a bit closer to home as Erica’s friend Addy is one of this year’s ambassadors! She is a brave 14 yr old girl fighting a rare form of cancer. We are doing this for her, no one fights alone! 💛 #teamaddy

Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

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

Your support will change little lives.

Thank you.

  • Tribute day!
    22 Jul 2022

    Today is tribute day with Great Cycle Challenge!! Thank you to everyone that has sponsored us so far and if it’s put on your heart to make a difference in the lives of the many children with cancer please follow the link below to sponsor us today. 🚴‍♀️

    Todays tribute is taken from Addy’s family’s tribute! 💛

    “We are so proud of Addy and the way she faced this challenge each and every day was incredible and inspired all those around her. We will all miss her so much and would not trade the time we had together for anything. Addison loved being outside, exploring nature, swimming, playing basketball, 4 wheeler rides, eating snow and candy, being with friends and family, painting rocks, going to the beach and seeing the sunsets and most of all Sunday night dinners with family. Giving and complimenting others made her heart very happy. Addison thank you for showing the world how to handle adversity in life with positivity, courage, bravery and exceptional perseverance.” 💛

    For us seeing her fight her sickness to the very end with such bravery, reminds us to fight even through the small hurdles. Addy is a true inspiration to everyone, those that knew her and those that hear her stories from family and friends. See is truly a shining star 🌟

    It is with great sadness that I share that Addy passed away on Sunday after a 9-month battle with angiosarcoma. 💔

    She was surrounded by her loving family.

    Addy was just 14 years old and she fought with strength and bravery far beyond her years. She inspired a nation throughout her courageous cancer journey.

    Her mom shared, "It is with heavy hearts that we honor and say goodbye to our perfect angel Addison💛 . Our earth angel now has her wings to fly free 🦋"

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends during this very difficult time!🙏❤️
