Support My Ride to Conquer Cancer?
Few know until now that in 2011 since March i have battled Thyroid Cancer. I have had one operation in October to remove a 15mm tumor from my throat and then the other half of my thyroid was completly removed in November. I now need to take a tablet to replace my thyroid for the rest of my life which is a small price to pay to live to father my 3 kids and keep the wife Australia's luckiest woman.....lol.
In December on Monday the 19th (My daughters birthday i will embark on 2-3 days of radiation at The Peter Mac Centre for Cancer. This will leave me locked in a room on my own with no visitors due to my radiation levels. This procedure will hopefully remove the final 2 x 1mm cancerous cells in my throat. I will for the rest of my life have 6 monthly CT scans to ensure that if there is a return of this cancer it can be acted on quickly. All this is possible because of the Peter Mac Centre for Cancer, Australia's only dedicated cancer hospital. I am not seeking any sympathy here just giving you an overview and reaching out for your donation for the unlucky people.
I am a good result, however unfortunalty i have seen first hand plenty of people at each of my Peter Mac vists that could not tell you the same story. I have seen young boys and girls that may not see christmas this year. I have seen parents that are exhausted from this process and elder people who travel from the country to have treatment.
1 in 2 people will contract some form of cancer in their lifetime. However there is only one dedicated cancer hosptial in Australia, Peter Mac!
My committment is to ride this 200klms in October 2012 and raise 5-10K. The ride is from the city to the yarra valley on day 1 and back to the city the next day. Walk with me on this journey via my updates, training & blogs. Join Team Compt as a rider and or sponsor and help me save another life. The donation can be as small as 10c a KLM which is only $20. Donate more if you wish but please make a donation as you may way well have saved a life by doing this. The great news is that it is tax deductable over $2.
Contribute to this history-making event with a donation. Funds raised in The Ride to Conquer Cancer will support Peter Mac, the only public hospital in Australia solely dedicated to cancer.
Thank you in advance for your support and donation.
