In September 2013, keen cyclist Justin McLean was diagnosed with an aggressive form of bowel cancer. Shocked by the alienating experience that cancer treatment can often mean for patients, he decided to do something about it. The result was Thrivor, a cancer charity that promotes the idea of an improved global standard for patient care.
It was during a particularly dark moment in Justin’s own chemotherapy treatment that his good friend and Thrivor co-founder, Adam Davis, showed him a photograph. The image was of a lone cyclist scaling a seemingly never ending series of mountain switchbacks. It struck a chord, and Justin determined that, while a brutal battle lay ahead, he would complete the task and emerge victorious.
As an extra incentive, Adam assured Justin that, when his chemo was finished, they would take a cycling trip to Corsica, where they had ridden together the previous year. In October 2014, Justin and Adam travelled to Corsica with Rapha Travel, a cycling adventure that would close a dark chapter in Justin’s life and celebrate his life ahead.
To support thrivor in their efforts, Rapha has created the Thrivor Cap. All profits from the sale of the cap will go to Thrivor.
