Katelyn Mole

My Story

16 Oct 2020

Just over two and a half years ago my sister, Katelyn Mole, was diagnosed with cancer (Acute Myeloid Leukaemia). She went on to have numerous rounds of chemo and in July 2018 she had a stem cell transplant - I was the donor. Since then, I've taken part in the Great Cycle Challenge to help raise awareness and funds for fighting kids' cancer. Even though Katie wasn't a "kid" when she was diagnosed, my Dad pointed out to me that "a cure for cancer is a cure for cancer".

This year we're sad to not have Katie with us as we do another year of Great Cycle Challenge. But I'll be riding again in memory of her and in the hope of finding a cure for others.

And so I am riding and raising funds to support the Children's Medical Research Institute to continue their work into the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and finding a cure for childhood cancer.

Please support my challenge by making a donation through my fundraising page.

Thanks for your support.
