SURREY – Michele Fronteddu has joined forces with his brothers to make a difference in the fight against cancer.
The family has been touched by cancer, more than once.
In 2013, Fronteddu’s mother was diagnosed with colorectal cancer, and although it’s been a difficult year dealing with the initial diagnosis and ongoing treatment, she has been a source of inspiration and strength to everyone around her.
Three years earlier, the Surrey man’s mother-in-law was also diagnosed with colon cancer.
This year, Fronteddu decided to participate in The Ride to Conquer Cancer.
"I have known about this amazing charity ride for the past few years, and yet this is the first year I have decided to participate," he said on his donation page.
"When my brother Graziano rode this event in 2012 he was so moved by the support and personal stories from each and every rider that I decided this would be a must do on my list."
Graziano and Michele are joined by their brother Guiseppe on the St. Paul’s Hospital Colorectal Surgeons team for The Ride to Conquer Cancer, a two-day cycling event on June 14 and 15.
