Yesterday dad started out in the rain. He decided to go into Tim Hortons as it was raining so hard to get dried out a bit and to see if the rain would let up. While in Tim Hortons he started talking with a couple from Nanaimo, BC. They left Nanaimo on May 11th and could not believe that dad left Victoria BC on May 15th. Did I mention they are travelling by vehicle. For anyone who does not know where Nanaimo is it is also on Vancouver Island approximately an hour away from Victoria. (It is where Connor was born).
Dad was told of a bike trail from Trois Rivieres to Levis that he could follow. Dad said it was a beautiful trail. He came across a couple who advised dad of a steep hill with a sharp S turn. They spoke broken English, but dad told them it would be a piece of cake and they laughed. This morning a guy drove pass dad honking and waving and when he got closer he smiled at dad and keep saying "good luck, good luck." It was the same guy dad talked with on the trail probably on his way to work.
Today dad is off to St. Pascal. This is dad's last day in Quebec. Again THANK YOU to Russel Metals Quebec for hosting dad through Quebec.
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.
