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

You all know how much I love cycling up mountains. Maybe that is a very large exaggeration! I signed up to help out a team called Cyclists for Cure. After realizing that a very close friend has lost and may soon lose another family member and that they have an increased possibility of also being diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer the seriousness of this fund raising became very personal. I will ride as hard as I can. Please help out by donating whatever you can.

This year, more than 800 British Columbians will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Its 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 its 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.

Please consider making a donation.
