What propels me is the concept of "What if ?" Not in a guilt ridden way, but what if you had the opportunity to do something to make the world a little bit better...wouldn't you do it? What if by skipping Starbucks a couple of times a week you could help a child without means, have access to all the books and tools they needed to finish high school...wouldn't you do it? What if that child by finishing school finds the cure for cancer...isn't it worth it?
Recently I heard Mia Farrow speak and she summed it up by saying that "With knowledge comes responsibility....and now you know".
That's pretty much it...I know what it is to live with cancer. I know that the problem with a safety net is that just like any other net it has holes. I know that together we can create a world class cancer center at the MUHC.
And so I pedal, faster and further. 38 kms in my latest training ride. For those who have been kind enough to inquire, no I haven't developed the callous and frankly I am not sure that Bag Balm sounds any better than Assos of Switzerland!
By the way...now that you know....what are you going to do about it?
