RIde to Conquer Cancer ... 2010 edition.

Have you ever had a dream, a dream so real that you just can’t wake up from? This is what the last year has felt like. I keep hoping I will wake up and it will be just a dream. He will be on the other end of the phone. He will be coming home from work. He will be coming to a birthday party. We will see him for Christmas. But unfortunately that is not to be. He is gone. I won’t be waking up from this nightmare.

Cancer took my dad’s life, but it didn’t take his legacy.
His legacy lives on. Christopher Beer taught me what hard work was about. He taught me that life wasn’t easy, but it was rewarding. So in his honour, I will again be battling saddle sores (because lets face it 200km on a bike is sore for this amateur) battling myself and battling the open road for the hope that one day Cancer will be beaten. I believe. Do you?

To donate and to help me reach my fundraising goal of $8000, please goto www.conquercancer.ca/goto/jenniferminardi

Cancer takes way too much. Lets bring some hope back!

Kudos to you. I can so feel you longing, and I don't look forward to the day I say that about my own parents. Good luck in your fundraising and your ride!
