Who will be driving the route?

Posted by ewan on Wednesday, May 30, 2012,
Morning all. I know that I will be doing the drive all the way. Those that will be doing the whole drive with me will be cancer survivors as a requirement. One of the drivers might be one of the main sponsors, but that will still be discussed. This will be the tree main drivers, and there will hopefully be two relay teams per country.
The idea of the relay teams is that two persons from each country that are survivors will take over from the two drivers from the country that we leave. Example ...

Cancer in Domestic Animals

Posted by ewan on Sunday, May 20, 2012,
During this week, I have been reminded again how fragile life is. Many years ago we had a Alsatian that was diagnosed with brain cancer and we did the mercifully thing and had him put out as soon as we noticed that he was in severe pain and did not want to eat anymore.

Diet tested.

Good day All
I went on a so called Vegan diet for a couple of weeks. The diet consisted of all fruit and vegetable products where no animal products are involved except honey.

The decision was made that once a week, I will allow myself to have some type of f...

About Me

I am the organizer of the Pole2poleandback drive for the awareness of cancer and to raise funds for two of our indispensable NGO's that rely almost solely on donations. The reason for the drive is my mission to make more aware of cancer and that early detection can lead to effective treatment.
