The most dread of all diseases, but also one that, I am thoroughly convinced, can be brought to battle and defeated within our lifetime.

My own life was touched by this disease when my mother, Marilyn Broad, a survivor of breast cancer, died, five years ago this May, after a subsequent contest with liver cancer. In the years since, several dear friends have lost parents to the disease, and another is helping her mother through a struggle against cancer of the brain.

On June 12th and 13th, my wife Amanda and I, along with our friend Alison Hunter and her brother Colin Hunter, will be participating in the 2nd Ride to Conquer Cancer, a 200 kilometer charity bicycling event to raise money for the Campbell Family Institute at Toronto's Princess Margaret Hospital. Our team goal is to raise in excess of $11,000.
