Dad had a beautiful day cycling yesterday. The weather was great and the scenery was amazing. He took his time and enjoyed the ride.
THANK YOU to Russel Metals Quebec who is supporting dad on his journey by hosting him in hotels while cycling through Quebec. When he arrived at his hotel last evening and finished checking in, it had started to rain. Dad finished his day without getting wet.
Dad arrived in good time, just after 6 pm. Dad said he was just going to shower, relax and sleep. The last few days he was up early and late enjoying the company of his hosts.
Today is the start of week 6. Dad has cycled over 5,000 km. Once today is behind him, he is on familiar territory as he trucked Northern New Brunswick over 20 years. Today dad is heading to Levis.
December 18, 1997, I had surgical treatment of thyroid disease and half of the thyroid was removed. It was discovered that I had Follicular Carcinoma of Thyroid. I was called in for further surgery to remove the remaining thyroid. I have done radioactive iodine therapy and take replacement pills for the thyroid.
May 15, 2010, has been designated the starting of my mission. It is my dream and purpose to bike from the west coast of Canada to my home province of Nova Scotia. I will be dipping my bike in the water at the Pacific Ocean, Mile Zero, Victoria, BC on May 15, 2010 and will be biking solely to arrive back in Halifax on June 30, 2010. Raising funds for the Cancer Society is my ultimate goal. I am a cancer survivor and feel it my duty to help others. Your financial contribution and all donations will go directly to thyroid research and "research" at the Cancer Society. Together you and I can make a difference and give hope to our brothers and sisters suffering from this turmoil disease. Your generosity is so appreciated. I invite you to join me in my mission.
