Dr. Paul Receives Official BABC Helmet
Published on Sunday, 26 May 2013 18:34
...for the Bikers Against Brain Cancer committee (consisting of a dozen volunteers from my service club, www.cornwallkin.com, predominantly led by Kin Jody & Robert) threw me a surprise party tonight at Kin Ray Eady's new house and they even had a Harley style helmet custom made (complete with an airbrushed image of a brain, a spinal cord and the "Bikers Against Brain Cancer" logo as well as the number 4 on it... representing its 4th year of raising funds and awareness. Kin Archie got his hands on a way cool mini Harley motorcycle and rebuilt it from scratch (photo to come) which means I of course now have to upgrade to riding a Harley fat Boy!! Got to get permission from MY boss on that one 1st!LOL
Being 47 years old...I've accumulated many friends over the years (Los Angeles, Portland, San Francisco, Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec city and of course Cornwall) but NEVER has anyone done for me what these men did for me tonight. They truly are my brother(s) from another mother!!! I must highlight kinsmen Jody Archambault who has been MY ROCK backing me every step of. The way since we met. He's been there for me like NO OTHER, built websites for me and NEVER asked for anything in return, he and kinsmen Robert Drover willingly took over the cause for me as of this year (in order to allow me to create momentum for the cause on a much larger scale beyond eastern Ontario...via my upcoming film, etc).
I may not be the "wealthiest" man on the planet but I'm a multi millionaire in the quality of friendships I've accumulated here within the Kinsmen!!!
I sincerely appreciate you ALL for what you've done for me with your support these last few years (and I'll, in. turn, make the Kinsmen club of Cornwall better known along my upcoming stateside journey as well).
Thank you one all....

Letter from New Co-Chair

I am Co-Chair of Bikers Against Brain Cancer for the Kinsmen Club of Cornwall and I have helped Dr. Paul on his previous rides. We the Kinsmen are thrilled and humbled to take the ride over from Dr.P. We have some big shoes to fill but we are up to the challenge.
We have worked on a new ride route this year that will see us riding from St. Andrews West to Brockville. We will be picking up riders on route, and we will end the ride at the 2013 Seaway Lions Rib Fest where we will enjoy a nice rib meal, live entertainment and a beer garden. Our riders will have a reserved section to sit and there will be security to watch over the bikes. Our goal is to make your ride experience with us a memorable one! There will be additional information soon on discount hotel rates for our out of town guests.
We look forward to meeting all of the old and new supporters of this wonderful event.
Thank you all for your support!

The Dedication and Heart of an Athlete
Published on Thursday, 12 July 2012 03:17
For those of us have chosen the path to become an athlete, we know that it takes hard work, dedication and sacrifice to achieve the standards of what the given sport entails. No matter what sport, there are numerous challenges be it both physical or mental that take a toll on the individual throughout their preparation.
Most of us, have at one point faced a challenge or road block that have made us question if pursuing the dream is worth it. For many, that road block can be something simple that may set one back, but most often with support from those who believe in us, we are able to overcome. What happens though when an athlete is faced with a life changing road block that basically is a life or death matter? Many of us can assume what we would do, but until we are put in that situation, you never really know.Read more: The Dedication and Heart of an Athlete

To all my supporters, Some changes to Bikers Against Brain Cancer.
The annual "Bikers against Brain Cancer" fundraiser has been taken over by the Cornwall Kinsmen Club, and is now going to be a part the club's annual projects.
The Kinsmen will do a wonderful job of making the ride grow, this will allow me more time to promote the cause in other aspects. I will still be participating in the ride.
I hope you all show the Kinsmen the same level of support you have shown me over the years. The fundraiser was founded in 2010 dedicating awareness to, and collecting funds for brain cancer.
We are developing a new website and merchandise, that will be available soon. This year's ride is scheduled for July 27. Keep watching for more information on the Facebook page and don't forget to tell your friends.

Sheryl Crow has a benign brain tumor, the singer revealed in a new interview. "I worried about my memory so much that I went and got an MRI. And I found out I have a brain tumor," Crow tells the Las Vegas Review Journal. "I haven't really talked about it," she adds. "In November, I found out I have a brain tumor. But it's benign, so I don't have to worry about it." The singer's rep says that the Grammy winner, 50, is healthy and happy. The tumor is a meningioma, which is typically benign and develops from the brain and spinal cord linings. It should not require surgery.
Crow, who has two young sons, says she recently forgot some of the words to her song "Soak Up the Sun" while performing in Florida. "I'm 50, what can I say? My brain's gone to [expletive]," she cracked at the time. Crow battled breast cancer in 2006. "I think it was a great release for me, just going through the experience," she told PEOPLE that year. "It's what you do with the experience that really defines who you become … I let go of a lot of the pressure I used to put on myself."
