My Activity Tracking
My target 500 kms
I'm fundraising to help support tumour research
I'm proud and excited to participate in the 2nd year of Athina’s Ride to raise funds for research through The Desmoid Tumour Foundation of Canada (DFC). Though I won't be cycling in BC (I wish!), I've been tracking my kms each day since registration began, by walking around my neighbourhood and local parks.
As someone who has a few desmoid tumours, I consider it my responsibility to raise awareness and funds to help support research initiatives. If we don't, who will?
Over the years, I have experienced surgery, radiation, IV chemo, oral chemo and clinical trials. There is still no cure for these tumours.
Desmoid Tumours are extremely rare and affect approximately 2/million Canadians. They are locally aggressive rare tumours, and underfunded when it comes to research, often leading to misdiagnosis and discrepancies in treatment.
The DFC is the only not-for-profit in Canada dedicated to finding new treatments and hopefully a cure for desmoid tumours. In these past few years made more difficult by the ongoing pandemic, your donations will make a huge impact.
Thank you so much for your love and support! If you're able to make a donation or help amplify, it'll go a long way. Thank you!
