I'm Riding For

Dakota Nelson my sister.

Dakota Nelson my sister.

This year I am riding in support of my sister who has a terminal cancer, Squamous cell carcinoma of the lungs. The overall prognosis for squamous cell lung cancer is poor; only about 16% of patients survive five years or longer. The survival rate is higher if the disease is detected and treated early. Even when surgery and other therapies are initially successful, squamous cell lung cancer can return. I ride in the Great Cycle Challenge as I want to see the end to all the suffering caused by this dreadful disease, my family has been devastated by Cancer with several family members losing their battle with it.

My Story

This October, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!

Because right now, cancer is the largest single killer of children from disease in Australia – over 600 children are diagnosed with cancer every year and sadly, 3 die every week.

Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

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 to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

Together, we can save little lives.

Thanks for your support.

Wayne

  • Very grateful for the support to this great cause
    6 Oct 2020

    Once again I have been overwhelmed by the amount of support this cause has attracted and I couldn't be anymore thankful. A decision was made this morning to reduce my riding goal due to my poor dog going through a sense of abandonment. He has been by my side through some of my darkest times and stuck with me every moment of the day through this pandemic when my depression and anxiety have kept me house bound and now he feel abandoned because I am gone for many hours of each day on my bike rides. How many kilometres I do from here on in is going to depend on how his condition goes. I will ride when I can but the real purpose of this fundraiser is getting donations to help the children so I feel that how many kilometres shouldn't be the real issue but helping the kids is and I hope you all agree. Thank you all for your support and understanding! Wayne

  • Well we are off and running (in this case Cycling)
    3 Oct 2020

    Day 3 into the Challenge and it has been tough, especially day 2 with strong winds and the wrong bike choice for the conditions. Day 3 has me waiting for a later start to try and avoid the strong winds again. All you wonderful people who have donated has made it a strong start with the fundraising part of the Challenge, to all of you I am very appreciative of what you have done. Hopefully this horrible weather doesn't last too long and my riding becomes easier and more fun, but if not my suffering out there will be nowhere in comparison to the poor kids we are trying to help. Cheers for now.

  • Fundraising milestone
    23 Aug 2020

    Thanks to some generous people we have reached and surpassed the $500 milestone which is fantastic. It is a difficult year but it is more than difficult to the children who are living with cancer and it is great to know people out there are still finding time to think about and helping others, I am so grateful to you all. Let us keep this donation train rolling and keep the gifts of hope to these kids coming.
