Welcome to My Personal Page
Recently a dear friend of mine - Jennifer Jenkins-Scott - was diagnosed with breast cancer. After my wife (Jacqueline) and I gave her a big hug, we asked her how we could help. I knew that she had a beautiful family, incredible friends, and great doctors, but I still wanted her to know that I would do whatever possible.
Several years ago, facing a similar circumstance, I decided to raise money for cancer support as part of the Wellspring Cancer Centre Peleton Challenge. I spoke with Jennifer, and she will be my inspiration this year to once again ride and support this incredible cause!
Every day in Canada, more than 500 people get a cancer diagnosis. Along with the devastating effects of treatment, an overwhelming majority of patients experience a multitude of debilitating non-medical consequences such as fear, anxiety, pain, financial worries, isolation and even guilt. Patient’s families are not immune to these feelings, and many also suffer anxiety, fear, depression and guilt. Through one-to-one and group support activities, learned coping skills, restorative therapies, and educational opportunities, Wellspring Cancer Support Foundation helps patients and their families take an active role in controlling their cancer experience to help improve their quality of life.
At Wellspring, the focus is on the person, not the disease. As the leading network of cancer support centres in Canada, Wellspring is a sanctuary of understanding, a place where cancer patients, as well as their family and caregivers, are welcome to participate in programming that will help them move forward with renewed strength, confidence and hope.
Jennifer has begun her journey and started chemotherapy in January 2020. My epic journey, to support her and raise funds to support Wellspring, begins on August 22, 2020; I will be cycling with a team of riders leaving Oakville until we reach Halifax.
The fundraising event will help fund cancer support programs and services that the Wellspring Cancer Support Foundation provides, free of charge for individuals and families living with cancer.
Please help me reach my fundraising goal - your gift is the fuel that will get me there.
