Introduction

Last weekend at Mom and Dad's 30th wedding anniversary, over a good glass of wine, we spoke of you and how nice it would be to have you there.

The first time I came into contact with cancer, I was very young and do not remember much about it. What remains after loss is the grief carried by loved ones around you. The second time I was a lot more aware when Mom told me she was diagnosed with breast cancer. After three-quarters of a year, mom was declared cured. All that remains are the annual checkup, a moment to anxiously await the results, and a moment to celebrate life.

This trip has been a long time coming. Not a digital nomad, but an actual nomad with 15 kilos packed in four panniers traveling for five weeks. I do not travel this pilgrimage alone, but start with Pia in Amsterdam and receive help along the way from Aag and Dad accompanying us in Spain.

Inspired by Dad and Max, who climbed the Alpe d'Huzes at the beginning of June to raise money for the KWF, we are also starting our campaign. September 9th, we cycle from Amsterdam to Santiago de Compostela to raise money for cancer research. This is our contribution, will you help us?
