Why I want to help cure cancer

In 2011 our youngest child was diagnosed with a brain tumour at the age of 8 and at that moment our lives changed. Following surgery at Monash Medical Centre and treatment at the Peter Mac, William started on the road to recovery. In 2017 we received the devastating news that the tumour had begun to grow back and once again William faced the challenge of more surgery and treatment in an effort to prevent the tumour from spreading. In the last 3 years I have also lost my only aunt and my mum to cancer so this ride is my chance to do something about this terrible disease. I will be riding over 550 kms in 4 days to fund pioneering research being carried out at The Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre - Australia’s only public hospital solely dedicated to caring for people affected by cancer. Please support me if you feel you can as every dollar raised goes directly towards this vital research. Thank you...Mike and William
