Breast Cancer Awareness Racebike!!!

Hello everyone my name is John, in March 2016 my wife was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer at 38 years old. We have two children a boy and girl who were 8 and 5 at the time. To say it was unexpected is an understatement, not even on our radar of possibilities she doesn't drink or smoke and ate healthy whilst exercising 3 times a week. Unfortunately it has been extremely difficult journey so far each step has been bad news. So I hatched a plan to build an awareness racebike with a pipe dream of racing in the Australian Supersport Support race at next year's World Superbike Championship at Phillip Island racetrack. It now appears that the pipe dream has come to fruition with the help of some amazing people, but we are still short on funds. Who knew it was so hard to get big business on board for such a good cause! The idea is to create an awareness campaign in a field which wouldn't usually have much exposure to it. It's obviously for all woman out there, let's face it we all have mothers, sisters. aunties, daughters, niece's and partners. It is predominantly aimed at those under 50 though as we found exposure in this age bracket isn't that great. So if you want to see a 6ft 2" bloke riding a pink bike with pink leathers and helmet please donate. But most importantly please look at the website share it and start a dialogue with those you love. There's lot's more info on there with pics, some video's and links to important stuff!!! www.rideformeeks.org Thanks for your time.

So it ended up a very successful weekend getting the word out there.
Micheal Hill interviewed me which streamed live on WSBK website. Website hits tripled and we had loads of feedback from the fans.
I'd like to say thanks again to everyone and also to say the "campaign " as such has definitely achieved it's goal and hopefully will continue to. That goal was that through the encouragement of this at least one person would catch it early. Well out of the many which have gone to get tested there is one lady who needs to go into surgery to remove some lumps which turn into cancer. Currently they are not so it has been caught early which was the aim. Therefore, yes surgery is required but not the dreaded Chemo and radiation.
