We are participating in the 2021 RIDE INSIDE in support of the CancerCare Manitoba.
This "party with a purpose" promises to be a lot of fun and at the same time will raise critical funds for young people with the hardest to treat cancers.
Cancer has touches us all and I am no different. My dad had Pancreatic Cancer and after a short but intense battle with it, he unfortunately was diagnosed far too late and passed away hours after his 72nd birthday. Cancer also affects young people. A former athlete of mine, Todd Davison, who was an excellent hockey player and an even better person, passed away from cancer in his early 20's but not before starting a foundation called: Believe in the Goal that raised funds for cancer research and helped young people have some great experiences during their battle with this disease.
Over the last five decades, there has been a dramatic improvement in treatments and outcomes for many pediatric and young adult cancers. Thanks to the passionate investment of donors, today four out of five of these young patients will be cured.
However, 20 percent of patients whose cancers have spread, returned, or proven resistant to treatment still have a challenge to face. PROFYLE, short for PRecision Oncology For Young peopLE, is dedicated to helping find cures for the rarest and hardest to treat cancers young people are facing. This initiative gives children, adolescents and young adults who are out of conventional treatment options another chance to beat their cancer. By supporting our team with a donation, you are helping to support CancerCare Manitoba in its work to change lives and change the course of cancer in our province.
Every donation - no matter how big or small - is critical as we work together to stay ahead of this disease.
Thank you for your consideration.
