OQ Vuelta A Casa
How do you say thank you. We were blown away by Ottilie and her team’s commitment, generosity in organising and completing this fundraiser for us. Her daily feedback that had us smiling and often in stitches, always leaving us in awe of their stamina in the daily rides [21 days over 7 countries].
The wonderful riders who have given their time and joined her along the way. Incredible. Thank you - thank you ALL. Your contribution to fundraising will make a huge difference to us. Really it will.
Ottilie you are quite remarkable. Congratulations of a fantastic ride from Luton to Mallorca. Few people could do that with two normal kidneys. You did it on one that was not your own and which had been operated on twice for cancer. An absolutely remarkable achievement, and on behalf of UCare we are extremely grateful to you for the money you raised for us.
You can ‘dot watch' her via GPS - going live from 9:30am on the 10th June.
Ottilie Quince is 11 times World Cycling Champion, Captain of Team GB Kidney Transplant team, Physiotherapist, cycling guide and commentator and runs a cycling business in Mallorca.
If that’s not enough, in June she will be cycling across 7 Countries in 21 days.
Why would you ever want to ride back to Mallorca, Spain after hospital tests and an appointment in England? Why not!!!
In 2007 Ottilie had a kidney transplant but some years later found out she had cancer in her transplanted kidney and was told it was a difficult surgery to perform, but upstepped Oxford Surgeon Mr David Cranston.
David was able to operate and remove the 4cm tumour off of my kidney without having to take too much of my kidney away (just a slither of cells apparently?) he truly is one of my heroes.
Fast forward 7 years the cancer returned deep within her transplanted kidney and Ottilie was put in touch with a surgeon in London.
Mr Tim O’Brien called me a few days later, he had the right level of arrogance, authority and the warm hearted approach I like and laid the best plan of attack” Meanwhile there was the matter of COVID happening across the world, but in November 2020 Tim O’Brien, and team saved her kidney again
“So to try my very best to get somewhere close to thanking my surgeons and their incredible medical teams enough, I thought I could do something to support the charities that they support.
The two amazing charities are UCARE and The Urology Foundation.
Ottilie will be back in Oxford in August to compete in The European Transplant and Dialysis Games which are are to be hosted in the United Kingdom for the first time, with Oxford hosting the event at Blenheim Palace in August 2022. Blenheim Palace is home to our Patron His Grace Duke of Marlborough.
