Sunshine Ride

I'm riding to support local families impacted by cancer

I'm taking part in the Sunshine Ride on March 15, 2024 and with my team, will be riding 24 hours on an exercise bike for local people impacted by cancer including me.

The pain and fatigue we'll feel after riding a bike for 24 hours gives us just a small snapshot of what patients and their families might go through on their cancer journey.

Whatever money we can raise to help ease that journey will be well worth it.

All money raised through the Sunshine Ride stays in our region to fund new facilities, services and research at the Albury Wodonga Regional Cancer Centre.

This means that more people in our community can access the cancer treatment and support they need, close to their home, and their family and friends.

Please consider making a donation of any amount - every dollar counts! Thank you for your support.

Wow!

Wednesday 10th Jan
Hello friends,

Well this morning I started off with a $500 target which we reached pretty quickly so I amended my target to $1000 which we reached in no time so I changed my target to $1500 and you made it happen! I pushed again to $2000 and am so very grateful for ALL of your support to help me reach that goal too. I'm now trying my luck to reach $2500. This money could go a long way in research and saving lives.
I appreciate every single donation and all of you who have so kindly given to and or shared my fundraiser.

Much love to you all xxx

My cancer journey written by my dog for Instagram

Wednesday 10th Jan
For those dat don't know, my mumma was diagnosed wiv lung cancer in 2021 and had 1/3rd of her right lung removed and went through a gruelling chemo treatment plan. Mumma has the cancer gene, EGFR.

In 2022 de cancer had spread to de middle of her chest and 2 brain tumours. She had more chemo and radiation.

In 2023 mumma got another brain tumor and had more radiation but it didnt work and in August she had an "episode" at work. She started bumping into things and seen flashing lights in her left eye. She drove home, running over 2 gutters on the way and when she got home she couldn't find de bathroom or her bedroom. Dad took her to emergency and after a series of scans, they found her brain tumour had grown and was pressing on nerves.

Mumma went to Melbourne and had brain surgery to remove the tumour. She then had more radiation which finished in November. She still has 2 in her brain. She goes for scans in February to see what's going on since de surgery and radiation.

So in de mean time, mumma has joined up wiv Team @familyvetcentre and dey will ride for 24hrs to raise money for our local cancer centre @awcancertrustfund to help wiv research into finding a cure for cancer for my mum and so many others dat are affected by dis ridiculous disease.

We know everyone is always getting asked to give so mumma has set a small target of $500 (but hopes she can raise more). Can you help her?
We will put de link in our bio but here it is anyway 👇
