My name is Rudi Peters, and I am a cancer survivor. In 2012, I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer, which is very rare for men to get, and my world changed. Some of the anti-thyroid drugs left the residual after effect of peripheral nerve damage (loss of nerve sensation in my hands and feet), which effectively ended my career as a Denturist in Terrace. I have since sold the practice and now am a commercial beekeeper in the Terrace area.
I am an avid cyclist and have really wanted to do the Tour de North ride for some time now, as a way for me to give back to the cancer community that gave me so much support while I was undergoing treatment.
The money raised from Cops for Cancer Tour de North helps:
• fund leading-edge pediatric 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;
• and supports our award winning Camp Goodtimes.
Please donate and help us reach our fundraising goal! Every donation takes us one step further in the fight against pediatric cancer. Online donations are secure and save the Canadian Cancer Society money by reducing administrative costs.
Thank you so much for your support!
