OneWalk. One Ride. ALL Cancers.
One Day can change your world. Today, 351 Australians will be diagnosed with cancer, and their day, and their world, will never be the same
On August 20, 2017 I will give one day to show I stand with those battling cancer, joining thousands of others as we Ride 100km, or Walk 25km through the streets of Brisbane.
Support My Ride in the OneDay to Conquer Cancer
#whyiride I am doing this Ride because my son trained hard to do the 2012 Ride To Conquer Cancer, but did not make it as he was in hospital at the time. We lost Kris in December 2012 and not only did we lose our son, but lots of others lost a great friend and they are sadder with his going. I feel a great sense of pride to complete the Ride and cannot thank the supporters that have given me financial and emotional support , I feel that this is a fitting way to honour Kris’s dedication and to raise awareness of just what a devastating disease Cancer is.
In an effort to raise both awareness of the need for ongoing research to finding a cure for Cancer and to assist this research with funds, I have completed the ‘Ride To Conquer Cancer’ in 2014 and 2015 and the 'Susan Suduk - One Day To Conquer Cancer' in 2016.
Kris was diagnosed on 28 June 2010 with bowel cancer that had spread to his liver and lymph glands. He commenced chemotherapy treatment shortly after being diagnosed in an effort to beat it.
I was inspired by Kris’s positive outlook through-out his illness and mentally he was winning the battle. It sadden me to accompany him to HOCA for his fortnightly chemotherapy treatment and to see the effect that it had on him afterwards. Kris would have a week of being well and able to enjoy his life and then a week of being nauseous – not a good thing to inflict on anybody, even worse when that person is only in their early thirties.
In the week before the ride, Kris was hospitalised and was only discharged on the Saturday of the Ride. He did meet up with his fellow team members afterwards, but to put it bluntly, he was devastated to have not completed the Ride.
Kris suffered setbacks from his surgery and eventually passed away on 19 December 2012.
It seems that the more you talk to people, you discover that they have a friend or relative who has been effected by cancer.
By supporting me on the Ride, you will be helping to raise funds for the:
