Welcome to My Cancervive Fundraising Page!
I recently joined the Cancervive Cycle Tour challenge to raise funds for people living with cancer who are supported through Wellspring Calgary. I invite you to help me reach my fundraising goal as I participate in the 6-day cycling tour, leaving from Wellspring Calgary's Fountain Court location through the Foothills, Kananaskis, Banff National Park, Rocky Mountain House, Cochrane, and ending at Wellspring Calgary's Carma House. I would so appreciate it if you would support me in this personal challenge!
Why am I doing this? Because this is very personal to me. My mom Jean lost her fight after a long, brave battle and I will continue to honor her through this ride and amazing organization. Her brother, my uncle Randall also fought hard but cancer took his life also a few years earlier. This year I will be riding for my father in law Ken who is going through his own struggles and trying to survive this awful disease.
Did you know 43 people a day are diagnosed with cancer in Alberta? In Calgary alone, 5 people a day may be seeking a place like Wellspring to support them during their cancer experience. While medical treatment is stellar, there are so many after effects of cancer and its treatment that cause changes to ones body, mind and spirit health. Wellspring Calgary is the only centre of its kind in western Canada that addresses the non-medical needs and changes that a cancer diagnosis can bring. Over 500 people accessed Wellspring Calgary's services for the first time last year! And just $150 will provide free resources, support and programs for one member for one month! My mom and dad both benefited from the amazing resouces and community at Wellspring. I will be forever grateful for this and this is why I ride!
I am excited to ride again this year and thank you to all of you for your continued support!
