My Story

28 Apr 2021

This August I am participating in the Great Cycle Challenge 2021 to fight kids' cancer! This is my third Challenge.

I am riding to honour the memory of my son, Avrum, whose battle with cancer ended in May, 1982. Avrum was 10.

I am riding to honour the memories of all my relatives and friends who dealt with cancer:

my grandmother, Leah (1939),

my mother, Mildred (1977),

my uncle, David (1977),

my son, Avrum (1982),

my sister, Shira Shelley (1998)

my 1st wife, Judith (2014)

my friend, Peter (2020).

Kids (everyone) 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 (and all) cancer.

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

Your support will change lives.

Thank you.
