I have decided to ridein Pelotonia again. This will be my 5th year riding. Cancer has effected many of my family and friends either personally or through their loved ones.
When I was in middle school my dad was diagnosed with cancer the first time. It was kidney cancer. He went through surgery and recovery and was cancer free. Some years later while I was in high school he was diagnosed with cancer again. This time it was prostate cancer. Again he went through surgery and recovery and was once again cancer free. Then when I was in college he received a third diagnosis. This time he had lung cancer. Yet again he fought cancer, went through surgery, recovery, and is still cancer free to this day. He beat not just once or twice but three times. I don't know if it was my dad's strength, doctors, medicine, or early detection (probably a little bit of each) that blessed us but I am thankful that he is cancer free and gets to be a wonderful husband, father and grandpa!
Personally, my Father's, Uncle's, Cousin's, and our family friends' battles with cancer are the main reason I am raising money. Please consider donating to my Peloton any little bit helps.
