My Story

4 Oct 2019

The 2019 ride will be hard, coming off ankle surgery. I’m not expecting to reach last year’s distance. But, I’ll give it a red-hot go! I’m riding for some inspirational friends; Jan W & Barry H, who had their lives touched by cancer. March 2019, saw Jan diagnosed with lung cancer, later revealed the cancer was caused by a melanoma removed six years prior! Following immunotherapy treatment which took a toll on Jan physically & emotionally, she was given the all clear in Sept 2019. Jan always maintained a positive approach & infectious laugh. August 2019, Barry received the devastating diagnosis of stage 4 bowel cancer that metastasized into the liver and lymph node. With his positive approach, Barry charged head on into treatment. Due to complications, on 8 August, he underwent bowel reduction surgery with chemotherapy commencing 12th August. Fighting daily, Barry is upbeat & determined to beat this. Jan and Barry are an absolute inspiration. Let’s make a difference. Thank you.
