All of us have lost a family member or friend to cancer. 2 1/2 years ago I was diagnosed with stage 3 colorectal cancer and I am extremely lucky to be winning the battle and expect to make a full recovery.

For the past three years my goal has been to raise awareness for the importance of early detection in beating all types of cancer especially colon cancer. My goal is to have EVERYONE ...GET SCREENED. Ask your doctor for a FIT Test.

May 14 is the Diamond Rally (www.diamondrally.com) where 100+ supercars meet up in Vancouver and cruise up the Sea-to-Sky Highway to Whistler with stops in Squamish and Pemberton. Truly a sight to behold - McLarens, Lamborghinis, Maseratis, Ferraris, Aston Martins, Jaguars, GT-Rs, Bentleys, and most importantly, Porsches (among many others, and a few wicked bikes) in a symphony of cylinders and stampede of horsepower blasting along one of the great driving roads in the sun (hopefully). It’s a ton of fun.

More importantly, it’s a huge charity event and has been a huge support in my goal of raising awareness and funds. In past Diamond Rallies, Leanne Chan and I have raised over $10,000 for to purchase essential equipment for minimally-invasive rectal cancer surgery at St. Paul’s (http://tinyurl.com/diamond-rally-2014).

This year, we are at it again, and have teamed up in a big way with St. Paul’s Foundation and my Surgeon Dr. Manoj Raval to raise funds and awareness for colorectal cancer care, through our charity “Faith, Hope, Love.” Check out the pictures below for the livery on our team cars.
