I'm Riding For

Monique Thoerner

I know my mom put up with a lot from me growing up. I wasn't a bad kid but I definitely had my moments. Mostly it was just the 2 of us and I could be "lazy" (which I'm finding out was probably all part of my autism I was only just recently diagnosed with) or just get on her nerves. No matter what I always did appreciate what my mom did for me and I know she loved me. One day the song wind beneath my wings came on and she told me that's how she felt about me. At that moment I realized just what I meant to my mom and really didn't know how to react. When my mom was diagnosed with cancer twice I didn't know how to react again and of course I probably came across as awkward. I did help her where I could including dinners or just trying my best to be there for her to talk. I definitely miss my mom and do think about her.

My Story

11 Jun 2021

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.
