FIRE FIGHTER CYCLE
May 10 I will run the Marathon through Vancouver by myself.
Because, May 10 2000, 20 years ago the Doctors told me, because of all my time as a firefighter, I had cancer, it had likely spread and I would likely die. Well Doc.... I didn't! I never gave up hope, and I feel, the Universe knew already that if I lived I would do good with this. I did. Cancer fought me twice again once after cycling around the world then when I finished a few Ironman races. I was going to run the Vancouver Marathon with the Thoracic surgeon that agreed to, after he cut a piece of my lung out. Maybe I inspired him I would fight to be back to 110% capacity. The actual race because of Covid was cancelled. But May 10, I will run. After three fights with cancer I just hope to inspire others to be positive and never give up hope. Covid, cancer, PTSD, depression, heartbreak even an Ironman, the biggest battle is in your mind and you can control that part of it !!!
I will finish my marathon at my mum and dads bench in Stanley Park by the Sylvia Hotel, as its mothers day and I love that spot. I will plant a cedar seedling like someone had previously promised me.
Thank you for reading my story.
I am a fire captain and cancer survivor.
