All the Cancer Warrior Kids!

My Story

25 Jul 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 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.

  • I Ride On!
    15 Aug 2020

    I Ride On!

    As I ride,

    I want to quit!

    My back aches!

    My legs are screaming!

    My fingers are numb!

    I have saddle sores!

    I am hurting in places

    I did not know could hurt!

    I am tired,

    I am bored,

    I am weary,

    I am just too old for this!

    Then, I think about the children

    Who are fighting for their lives

    Instead of living them.

    I think about their parents,

    Lonely, frightened and afraid

    Of what the each next day will bring.

    I think about their families who can do little

    Except to stand by them as they fight on!

    I think about the incredible bond,

    The unbreakable love

    The remarkable commitment

    That ties them all together.

    I think about their battles.

    I think about their smiles.

    I think about their wonderful,

    Never-ending and miraculous spirit.

    Then, for each of them

    I ride on!

    I Ride On!

  • Footprints (Written by Laurie Fischer)
    10 Aug 2020

    We all make footprints throughout our lives.

    Some are large, planted firmly in cement,

    Leaving a legacy, remembered long after

    Those who made them are gone.

    Others are small, made loosely in sand,

    Easily forgotten in time,

    Disappearing with the tide each day.

    The footprints we make in our lives

    Are completely of our own choosing.

    The difference we make in other people’s lives,

    Without asking anything in return

    Will be the path they will create.

    There are so many around us

    Who need our help.

    If we do little things for someone,

    Each and each day,

    The world will become

    A much better place for all.

    An old friend once said to me,

    “Always plant shade trees

    Under which you will not sit”

    To that, I respond

    “Make footprints throughout your life

    You will never see.”

  • Fighting Kid’s Cancer!
    31 Jul 2020

    Dedicated to all the Cancer Warrior Children!

    Written by Laurie Fischer

    (The day before the Great Cycle Challenge begins)

    Although I fight the cancer battle,

    Each and every day,

    I have lived a full and happy life

    And am determined to keep on living it!

    I just can not imagine being a child

    Or their parent, having to live

    Each and every day,

    Confronting this insidious disease.

    It is time for all of us

    To step forward and do our part,

    To share their battle, to fight along side

    Each and every one of these brave little cancer warriors.

    We can share our hearts with them

    For it truly is all about the children!

    They must be given the chance to live their lives

    Without having to fight for them, day after day.

    Together, we can make a difference

    In the lives of our future generation.

    We can help all of them

    Secure a much brighter future.

    If each of us will just give a little

    It will soon grow

    Into the substantial amount

    Needed to win their battles.

    So, let’s give all the cancer warrior children

    The opportunity they should have,

    The opportunity to live a full and happy life.

    Let’s all Fight against Kid’s Cancer!

  • “It is what it is! One step at a time! One day at a time!
    23 Jun 2020

    Those were the first words I uttered when the doctor told me in May 2018 I had Stage 4 Prostate Cancer. In many ways I am lucky as I am 66 years old and have lived a full life. But what about the young children who have this disease? I want them to have the chance to live a full and productive life, so I ask you to help me help them! I will fight for them as I continue to fight my own battle each and every day! Together, we can make a difference!
