    We believe the headline should have read cancer “fighters” because, doubtless, thousands of cancer and mental health fighters might have found hope and inspiration in Tyson English’s ride, but in this article, we’re sharing a truly inspiring story of one particular cancer fighter.

    On October, 31st, 2021, when Tyson English was about a quarter way along his 525-mile journey by bicycle to Lethem, Region 9, Carol Dabie, a cancer fighter, posted:

    You guys have no idea what this means to me. The sacrifice Tyson English is making personally gives me the motivation needed because he shows he understands the challenges we, cancer fighters, are faced with when staring death in the face. It’s more than just a physical battle because it tells a lot on your mental and emotional being. Ride on champ ❤️

    In November, 2019, Carol Dabie was diagnosed with stage 3 Cervical Clear Cell Carcinoma. It’s a rare type of hereditary cancer which doctors say is treatable but incurable. The type of cervical cancer that Dabie has been diagnosed with is not caused by the sexually transmitted Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), rather, it is hereditary. Carol’s mother, who suffered symptoms consistent with this type of cancer, died from it without knowing that she had it. Carol has gone through several rounds of chemotherapy and the tumor has gone, but cancer cells are still present. Nevertheless, she says she is feeling much better and is thankful for waking up to each new day. She says her battle with cancer makes her value life more because, as she put it, “you kinda earn living…if you get what I mean.”

    On the morning of October 29th, 2021, Tyson English set out on bicycle from Georgetown, Region 4, for a 525-mile ride down the rugged Lethem-Linden trail. At Linden, he was joined by a fellow rider, Michael Trotman, and the two continued, their bicycles laden with cooking utensils and survival kits, through the perilous Lethem-Linden Trail to Region 9. The ride lasted about 60 hours and the duo was cheered along by the general Guyanese public. On the 30th of October, 2021, Tyson English posted on his Facebook page:

    I appreciate all the encouragement and motivation but please be reminded that this is not about me.. the real Heroes are those facing daily battles with Cancer and Mental Health…
