Cycling For Life

This website was started to support my effort in raising both awareness of and money for prostate cancer. 

In December of 2004, at the age of 46, I was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer.  The doctors did not offer me a lot of hope for a cure.... but instead said they could extend my life expectancy with treatment.  At that time I decided to educate myself as much as possible so that I could battle the disease.  I thought I knew a lot about prostate cancer.... but it turns out I knew very little.... and that’s because it’s not talked about much and there is conflicting information available.

While in the hospital for a lymph node biopsy I decided that I would try to make guys aware. Armed with correct, up-to-date info I plan to ride across Canada on my bike; stopping along the way to share my story and the information I have acquired over the past number of months. I also am hoping to raise money for The Prostate Centre, the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) and the Lance Armstrong Foundation (LAF).

I have added a few links to some of the best information sites that I have found, as well as information on the bike trip, my bio and requests for donations. I will update this page from time to time.... mostly with events that are happening in my life as I get ready to take on this ride. Please come back and check up on how things are going.
