Some days one never forgets. Today was one of mine. It was the finish of my second round fight with cancer in 17 years. Its never a very easy fight. The Oncologist told me my odds were 30-50%, I said that doesn't change my plans to cycle across Australia for cancer. He said why on earth would you put your body through that stress after all this? I said, "So you can tell the next guy his odds are 100%."
The three girls (angels) Kari, Stefanie and Heidi that treated over the past 2 months on the linear accelerator deep in the basement were very sad today.I looked them each in the eyes hugged them a long time and thanked them all for saving my life. And I will continue my life for one main cause and never give up. I told them as a firefighter I had saved many lives on the spot, as they do in their jobs as well, but unfortunately they never really see the outcome as it happens over time and the patients are gone forever. . Then we all started crying and hugs all around. We agreed to all go for a bike ride soon and be friends for life. Likely they had to mop the floor after that. Sparkle was a bit jealous. So now the next chapter begins. First I must prove to my work that I can pass many strenuous training tests, and have not lost the skills required to return as a Captain. At the same time I begin training for one of the most strenuous and desolate continental cycles ever across Australia. I hope you call all follow the progress . I really don't want to be considered a hero or a legend. I only want to be recognized as a man that has truly found his destiny. And in my journey that I can inspire people to do good, to help others, to help fight this disease and in that maybe find their own destiny. This flight is far from over!
