I am participating in the Tour de Coast this year to raise money for cancer research and awareness of the challenges faced by young people and theif families going through cancer. As you may know, i received my own cancer diagnosis last year and am on my own journey for this illness. I was lucky to have a straight forward path to removing my illness which is a luxury many your people do not have. It has been a great opportunity for me to reflect on the impact of having a child go through cancer and the uncertainty of a global pandemic and economic crisis do not lessen the burden on these children or thei families.
Not everyone can support this cause as they have in the past. We all have to find new ways of continuing to raise cancer safety awareness in our young people and to maintain the programs that provide life saving cancer research.
Please take this moment to look inward and see if you are able to make a financial contribution. No donation is too small, no effort you put towards supporting the 2020 Tour de Coast is without meaning.
