Why I want to help cure cancer
I was diagnosed with stage 3b melanoma towards the end of 2016 and was quickly taken in for a 'radical' neck dissection. I'm currently on BRaf Inhibitors to combat cancer within me. To my wife's delight, for much of my treatment, I was able to keep riding around 200kms a week. Unfortunately, at the start of 2018, I came off the bike and dislocated my shoulder. I also had to go back into surgery in April. I spent way too long off the bike. I'm now back into training and am excited about the tour.
I have close friends and relatives who are also battling cancer. I want to ride in the tour on their behalf to help raise funds for cancer research.
My community partners
- I have family and friends support.
- I will seek commercial support if I am successful in obtaining a spot on the Signature Tour.
Amazing effort Tony!! Good luck with the ride and thank you for your tireless contribution to eradicating this horrible disease :) !!!
