AN EPIC RIDE TO CONQUER CANCER
Support My Ride to Conquer Cancer?
Welcome to my Personal Page! The Sunsuper Ride to Conquer Cancer benefiting the Western Australian Institute for Medical Research (WAIMR), is a cycling journey throughout the scenic countryside of Western Australia that I?m embarking on to fight cancer. It will be a challenge in a number of ways, but with my bike, my helmet, and your generosity, a real impact will be made!
I am dedicating my participation in this event to the tireless researchers at WAIMR. Over a number of years I have had the privilege to work alongside them and see how motivated and inspirational they are.
In 2010, the importance of medical research really came home to me. After being diagnosed with basal cell carcinomas and squamous cell carcinomas in the past, the big one hit me.... a melanoma.
You never want to hear the word cancer and I was no different. I had the melanoma removed and now will spend the rest of my life having regular checks. I am one of the lucky ones, but you still live with the worst thoughts sitting at the back of your mind, hoping that it does not strike again!
If my efforts can raise funds to find a cure for any cancer or even just improve the treatment for it, I will be satisfied.
Funds raised in The Sunsuper Ride to Conquer Cancer will support groundbreaking, critical cancer research being undertaken at WAIMR, Western Australia's premier adult medical research institute, investigating the genetic and environmental causes of a range of diseases, including breast and prostate cancer.
Your donation will be paid directly into a WAIMR bank account, so funds will be available for its immediate use. WAIMR is registered with the Australian Taxation Office as a Deductible Gift Recipient, so everyone who donates $2 or more will receive a Tax Receipt.
Thank you in advance for your help.
