To all those believed in me and helped me in my GBM episode

To all those believed in me and helped me in my GBM episode

This is the first ride of my 1000km cycling challenge within October. This year is special to me as when I decided to sign up for GCC, I was fully paralysed on my left part of my body. However, with a lot of determination, dedication, hardwork, consistency and support from a lot of good people, I am on the mend now and able to ride on my smart trainer for long hours. Lilli, Mason and Sophia you are so brave kids. I'm remembering you while I ride. I went through a difficult medical condition. Lot of people helped me in many ways in my recovery. I'mdedicating my first ride to all those who believed in me and helped me.

My Story

25 Oct 2021

I started supporting Great cycle challenge since 2017 because, in my view kids should not be fighting for life, rather enjoying their lives. Also, I am a passionate cyclist and a runner. Therefore, my passion and the cause aligned. This is my 3rd year riding. My 2021 ride is special to me as I was diagnosed with Glioblastoma multiform in November 2020. I was on a wheelchair when I was discharged from the hospital, January this year. I promised myself while getting treatment at hospital that I will ride Great cycle challenge this year and I will ride 1000 km. It is time to honour that promise. I am now running and training for my ride. I am still on a physio program and recovery has been positive and I am working towards the October ride. There has been support from family, friends, colleagues and community. And they have witnessed my recovery and determination so far. I am looking forward to ride in this event with much passion and I hope you will contribute to my ride.
