Received a phone call from dad around 2pm yesterday and he was still in Robinsonville. He was getting ready to head out to Campbellton. Yesterday was a relative short day compared to what he is used to. He cycled approximately 40km. Dad called mom when he arrived in Campbellton around 4:30pm. It was raining the whole time, but he was not in the rain for a long time. Dad was at Tim Hortons waiting to be picked up by his host who was taking him to Tidehead for supper.
THANK YOU to Jane and John who hosted dad in Campbellton. Jane was up bright and early this morning and had breakfast ready for dad and Brian for 5:30am. Yes, Brian is cycling with dad today from Campbellton to Bathurst. THANK YOU for welcoming Brian so early and sharing breakfast with him.
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.
