Fighting Cancer On Two Wheels

     


In November 2019, Jim was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Follicular Lymphoma (a form of blood cancer).  

Since that time, the father of three has undergone six cycles of chemotherapy and in June 2020, found out he was in remission. 

Jim is determined to make a difference to unlocking the mystery around cancer which so many people experience and numerous families are affected by so drastically. Therefore, he and his team have decided to ride in The Murray to Moyne to raise funds for The Fiona Elsey Cancer Research Institute and to make a practical difference Jim and his mates are participating as a team to set themselves a challenge, have some fun together and raise awareness and money for the Institute. 

The team are called the Jimmy's Licorice Allsorts. Jim explains 

"This may seem a comical name, and maybe it is – and don’t we all need a bit of comic relief in our lives! There are several layers to this title that speaks deeply about a cancer journey. 

Firstly it points to cancer itself. Allsorts means anyone can be touched by cancer. Cancer is indiscriminate to all sorts of people. Cancer can wreak havoc in all sorts of ways in people’s lives. The name, therefore, is a tribute to all cancer patients and survivors. 

The image of a licorice allsort is that it is encased in black. This might be a metaphor for the tough road a cancer patient is on. We notice too though and most importantly that the licorice allsort is not all black there is colour and lots of it and once you indulge there is also a sweetness. This leads us to reflect upon the support of family and friends and the hope that this brings to cancer patients. 

Allsorts also paints the picture that everyone can make a difference. Everyone, who ever they are, wherever they are, can contribute to a person’s cancer journey by being there for those suffering this disease and supporting them."
 

Jim and his team will be supported by a big group of family, friends and sponsors. See their website for more information about the adventure.
