173,800 new cases in Canada in 2010

76,200 died in 2010

2 out of 5 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime

My brother-in-law was one of those 76,200 people that died of cancer this year. So many of us have had someone in our lives taken to soon from this dreaded disease. My husband has decided to turn his life into a living legacy by completing the ride of a life time. He needs your help.

Can you donate to be part of this legacy and move the mission to find a cure for cancer forward?

Day 234: Give 234.


On June 18th my husband will be starting a ride of his lifetime and his brothers. He will beĀ participatingĀ in The Ride to Conquer Cancer. The ride starts in Vancouver and ends in Seattle. In two days they will cover over 200 km.. Not a ride for the faint at heart. My husband has to raise a minimum of $2500 to participate in the ride and he needs your help to get him there. This is your chance to be part of a legacy for someone you have lost to cancer. I am so proud of my husband for taking on this incredible challenge with so many others that are participating in the race.

Help us get him there and donate today. Whether is’t $10 or $1000 every dollar donated is going to a cause we all need to support. The goal is to have a world free of cancer.

Funds from The Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer support groundbreaking cancer research at the BC Cancer Agency, focused on advancing new understanding of cancer with the goal of developing new therapies to extend and save more lives. Every donation for $10 or more will receive a tax receipt. Click here to be directed to David’s site to make a direct donation.

Time Commitment: 2 day race for my husband

Cost: $100 donation


  1. David….

    if you need to raise 2500 CDN then you only need about 2400 USD !!!! the canadian economy is rocking and you can actually help cancer more with CANADIAN dollars these days then USD dollars…

    and think of all the discounted risotto and beer you can get when you get to Seattle!!!

    Good luck, we are supporting you with a donation and in spirit!!

    have fun and lots of love to larry’s spirit….what a great gift he gave you and you are giving him back!!
