Rohan was touched by cancer in 2002 when Dawn his then wife of 17 years was diagnosed with cancer. Dawn passed in 2004 leaving him with twins aged 6 years of age. Through the two years of Dawn’s cancer treatment Rohan learned many lessons and understandings of the affect cancer has on peoples’ lives. That is one of the reasons he was keen to participate with this fundraising ride in Bright. He would like to help where possible and would like to bring others along this journey to raise funds to assist with medical research costs.
