About Us

What We Do

Urachal cancer patients and oncologists who treat them need support and we plan on giving it to them. We continue to develop the Bikus Urachus brand locally and would like to expand it to other markets to drive awareness.  We will attempt to keep the site current with information for patients and physicians.  We raise funds for and promote urachal cancer research.

Who We Are

I decided I had to do something to combat this disease after I recovered from my treatment for urachal cancer in 2012.  With the support from my wife and friends I built the Bikus Urachus cycling team to raise money and awareness for urachal cancer.  Following my successful fundraising campaign for an event called The Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer in 2013, I decided to take it to the next level.  I launched a dedicated Urachal Cancer Research Fund at Montreal’s Jewish General Hospital – the only fund in the world dedicated to fighting this disease.  With leadership of Dr. Normand Blais and a world class advisory board, we announced the PanCanadian Urachal Cancer Study (“PUCS”) in 2014.
