I made a promise – I vowed that one day, when Stacey had won her fight, when she was healthy again, when she was ready, I would ride with her in the Ride to Conquer Cancer which she never had a chance to complete. In December 2012, I received a text message from Stacey, which simply read: “Let’s do this!”I am looking for your support for one more ride on June 15, 2013 – to thank and support the doctors that saved my Dad, to help keep a promise to a friend, to help celebrate Stacey Olynyk’s victory over cancer and to help dedicate this ride to her twin sister Karen – inspired by her unimaginable strength, courage, bravery and fight.
Thanks for your support! “LET”S DO THIS!” ~~ Mike
Mike is my cousin and I am so proud of him. I wrote about his dad when I started blogging titled “Love and Valor”. I also featured our Grandmother and his family (before he was born) in Mosaic of Cultures.
I received an e-mail from him tonight “ONLY 5 DAYS LEFT TO GO!” Oh dear, here I go again, the greatest procrastinator of all. I haven’t done anything in terms of supporting him. I have until May 11. Well, I thrive on pressure.
It’s either I go to Victoria to cheer him and his team, go see my Aunt to buy some tickets, use the snail mail for the donation or donate on-line. Too many choices. I’ll sleep over it and tomorrow, with a fresh mind, I’ll decide.
Without any further ado, my bragging rights. Meet Mr. Mike Gonzalez and The Team Spaghetti Factory. Let’s conquer CANCER!
