On Sunday, July 28th, I am cycling in the Capilano Volkswagen Cypress Challenge presented by Glotman•Simpson Cycling, raising awareness and funds for pancreatic cancer research and care at BC Cancer.

This year, more than 800 British Columbians will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. It’s projected that only 10 per cent (or 80 of those people diagnosed) will live five years.

Pancreatic cancer is difficult to detect at an early stage and is often resistant to treatment. Although it is the tenth most common cancer in Canada, it is the fourth leading cause of cancer death.

Unless more effective treatment strategies are found, pancreatic cancer in Canada is projected to become the second leading cause of cancer death by 2030.

We need to act now.

Since 2008, Cypress Challenge has raised over $4 million – and it’s thanks to the generosity of community members like you. Together, we can drive innovations in research and enhance care to benefit each person facing this disease.

With your help, BC Cancer can continue its vital work to break down this deadly disease.
