Stewy, born in the UK, now living in Ontario, Canada, has decided to take on a solo 10,000+ mile motorcycle challenge coast to coast across the USA & Canada, lasting about 6 weeks during a break from oral chemotherapy. Stewy will be riding a 19 year old British made Triumph Thunderbird 900cc for the challenge.
Stewy was diagnosed in 2013 with stage 4 kidney cancer and was given a 2 year life expectancy, six years later on oral treatment (Sunitib/Sutent) and has had every side affect you can think of. As Stewy said ‘You have to try everything in life, hey!’ and ‘hopes that he can empower people to seek a personalised treatment plan and not to except just one specialists opinion and just be part of the current treatment process’.
Stewy’s feeling on life is ‘Everyday is a good day just different, with out rain there wouldn’t be any rainbows’
His skeleton route/areas for the Coming to a body near you tour are
Lake Powell area
Up West Coast road
The 3500km/2200 mile middle bit
One last thing Stewy said is: ‘Treat me as a human and not a disease, be ready for people to just disappear from your life JUST due to you having Cancer.’
