Hubby's fight against cancer - BC Cancer Foundation's Tour of Courage

Please support Hubby as he rides to raise funds and brings awareness to blood cancer research.

And now, a message from Hubby...


On September 23, I will be participating in a community bike ride in support of the BC Cancer Foundation's Tour of Courage with special guest Lance Armstrong. The money raised will support leading-edge research into improving diagnosis and treatment of cancer.

For this inaugural event in Vancouver, I will be riding on behalf of my friend Laleh, who has been battling and suffering from a rare and deadly disease, Adrenocortical Carcinoma (ACC) for the past two years. Because of its rarity, ACC does not get a lot of research focus or awareness. It is usually diagnosed at a very late stage, when metastases have already developed in other organs, and in Laleh's case, her liver.

Please consider offering your support by making a pledge to the BC Cancer Foundation, and by praying for Laleh.

You can access my personal page at the link below, where you can make a pledge to support the BC Cancer Foundation.

Below you will also find a link to the ATAC Research Project, one of the few research projects dedicated to ACC.

Thank you for your attention and support,
