Thank you for taking this journey with us !!! We Ride again !!!

I am Riding for my Daughter !We are riding in Athina’s Ride to raise funds for Desmoid research through The Desmoid Tumour Foundation of Canada (DFC).

Desmoid Tumours are extremely rare, affecting 2-4/million. They are locally aggressive and can cause life threatening problems or even death when they invade vital organs. The tendency for recurrence with surgery makes the treatment of these very rare tumours challenging. 

Rare conditions like Desmoids are underfunded, often leading to misdiagnosis and discrepancies in treatment. Athina’s Ride is a new Virtual Cycling Event that will bring riders together everywhere to help raise money for this important research. 

Please help us reach our fundraising goal to find a cure for Desmoid Tumours. 

The DFC is the only not-for-profit in Canada dedicated to finding new treatments and hopefully a cure for desmoid tumours. In a year made more difficult by the ongoing pandemic, your donations will make a huge impact. 

To donate securely, visit my fundraising page and consider joining Athina’s Ride with me!

Thank you to my Sponsors
