Portraits of Survival

Why am I cycling across Europe?

I was diagnosed with acute leukaemia in 2004, when my children Julianne and Phil were 11 and 9 years old. I was saved by science, the discoveries that resulted from many years of medical research, and the skill and care of my doctors and others. I am forever grateful for the second life I have been given, and for these portraits of survival:

My daughter Julianne graduates from McGill University May 28,  2015 and I am there!

I cycle to celebrate life, and to raise money for our Research Chair, in the hope that with continuing discoveries others will also have portraits of survival.

Please support our Research Chair, and life, at, thanks.
