Welcome to Kevin Flood's Fundraising Page
My name is Cpl Kevin Flood of the Nanaimo RCMP and I am one of the The Canadian Cancer Society's - Cops for Cancer - Tour de Rock riders for 2017.
This event provides an opportunity for police officers to become involved and support a well recognized charity that has significant impact in raising the substantial funding required to combat Cancer. I have suffered personal anguish as a direct result of Cancer as I have lost three family members to this horrible disease. Cancer in any form, has an immediate and profound impact on the lives of those diagnosed as well as their families and friends. Through my experience, the funds raised not only to assist in research to bring a cure for deadly disease, but also to assist children andfamilies in dealing with costs associated to medical and travel expenses incurred as a result receiving treatment.
I have had three family members that have died directly as a result of cancer. My Grandfather, my Aunt, as well as my Cousin's five year old son, Devon. The most recent was Devon's death which had a profound effect on my family. Devon was diagnosed with brain cancer on Boxing Day in 2005 and fought courageously against the disease until he passed away months later. It was difficult for me in that I had a son at that time, the same age, with same interests. I witnessed first hand how a diagnosis, the dealing with treatment, and the death of a child can devastate an entire family and create irreversible emotional damage to surviving family members.
Canadian Cancer Society Cops for Cancer is a well known and respected organization that not just benefits the communities of Vancouver Island, but Canada wide. Being selected as a rider affiliated to this charity is an honor. and has provided me with fulfilling experiences and rewarding opportunities that will resulting from hard work and dedication. This has been a once in a lifetime opportunity to work closely with other colleagues and families that also have been directly affected by Cancer.
Tour de Rock helps fund leading-edgepediatric cancer research that is improving cancer treatments, preventing cancer and saving lives; provide reliable and up-to-date information on cancer, risk reduction and treatment; offer vital community-based support services for people living with cancer and their families; and advocate for healthy public policies.
