176 km to raise hope

I am cycling...

Be your strongest he always told my sister and me whenever the world seemed unfair. Yet watching him turn, within 3 years, from the wittiest and most loving dad to being locked inside his own body not able to do anything without my mum’s help, is something I was not prepared for. It’s a new reality for my family, albeit a sad one. Not able to share with him my achievements or ask for advice or a hug in my most vulnerable times came too soon. Yet I am lucky to have the best role models I can wish for - my mum’s resilience to be there for him every step of the way and my dad’s strength to fight day after day. Not only is there no cure, but there are no treatments either for this vile disease. It’s only hope that keeps my dad going, hope that one day CBD won’t be a rare, incurable disease. And until then, I’ll strive every day to be at my strongest.
