Welcome to My Cancervive 'Shut Up Cancer' Fundraising Page!
I'm excited to announce my quads and I will be participating in our 3rd Tour de Cancervive ride in September 2016. I'll be riding in memory of my mom who I lost last year to cancer. My bicycle, Samantha, and I will be riding through southern rural Alberta from Calgary and back again in 5 days. I'm riding to support Wellspring Calgary and the families and members they help; I'd appreciate your help in making this happen.
Here’s an alarming stat -- 43 people a day are diagnosed with cancer in Alberta. While medical treatment works to improve the condition, there are so many after effects of cancer and its treatment that can cause changes to one’s body, mind and emotional health. Plus as a yoga therapist who has taught those with cancer I have seen how important mind-body therapy can be for those living with the disease. Plus as a family member of someone who's left us, I know when you're the one left behind you also need support and an emotional hug. Sometimes a literal one works, too. Wellspring is the only centre of its kind in western Canada that addresses the non-medical needs that a cancer diagnosis can bring. Over 500 people accessed Wellspring Calgary's services for the first time last year! And just $100 will provide free resources, support and programs for one member for one month!
Every dollar makes a difference in the life of someone living with cancer. Even your $20 weekly latte fund can help make a difference in someone's life. Please consider supporting my efforts to ensure no one has to face cancer alone.
I'll share photos again from my year and ride. Pray for my quads.
