Peter mac conquer cancer ride 2013

Then I finally headed along Beach Road back to the city. I have heard a lot of complaints about riding along Beach Road — from cyclists and drivers — but on a Wednesday afternoon, with the sun shining on the bay, it was a real pleasure. Coming around the corner at Middle Brighton Beach and seeing the afternoon sun reflecting on the city and the bay was a real highlight. Finally I dove through St. Kilda to get to the Yarra before taking the Main Yarra Trail back home. I got back seven hours after I started, having travelled km and with sweat having washed clean tracks down my face.

Best thing was I could walk the next day. The day after, not to rest on my laurels, I managed a much more modest ride of about 57km. So, I am hopeful I can manage the distance on back-to-back days. With over 2, riders, someone you know will already be riding or may be part of a team. You will be given the option of searching for an individual or a team, and then you can make a donation.

Or you could sponsor me and my team. How does the money help, you ask? It goes to research institutions for the development of treatments. Importantly, none of the money goes to big pharmaceutical companies. Most of the cancer treatments that may be developed are unlikely to be very profitable for the big companies. The drugs will be highly specific to certain types of cancers and possibly even to subgroups of cancer types.

It can cost hundreds of millions of dollars to get new drugs on the market.

And drugs are not the only types of treatments being developed. Developments in the past 30 years have made some cancers that were once highly lethal, potentially curable in the majority of cases — testicular cancers for instance. Genes have been detected within certain types of cancer that can be specifically targeted by antibodies and so improve the response to treatment. I would urge you to donate something to those taking part in the Ride to Conquer Cancer.

Wow, those numbers are shocking!!

It has been over 7 years since my husband Bob passed away from lymphoma and we still find it hard to believe and comprehend that our beloved Bob is really gone. Bob was first diagnosed with cancer in April Bob believed if he could hold on long enough a cure would be found for his b-cell non-hodgkins lymphoma.
