My Fundraising Progress:
$0 My Commitment: $1,750.00
   Congrats! Keep going!

This will be my 7th year participating in Pelotonia. Unlike the previous 6 years, I now have my own experience with having to receive treatment and surgery at The James Cancer Hospital.

What started off as a routine yearly checkup with my primary care physician last September resulted in biopsies and ultimately the removal of the right lobe of my thyroid gland in April of this year. Molecular and cytology biopsies with Dr. Mayumi Endo determined I had a suspicious nodule that came back as a follicular neoplasm.  Needing to have the nodule removed brought me to meet Dr. John Phay.  After successful right lobe removal, final pathology came back clear and we could finally breathe a little easier.  I cannot stress enough what I have already mentioned...this was all caught on a routine yearly physical.  Please please please, see your physician or PA or NP routinely!!!

We do not choose cancer, It chooses us. We do not directly have a say in the matter.  We, however, do have a choice to fight it.  I am choosing to ride my bike to help raise money for research at OSU's The James cancer hospital.

I would be honored to ride for you or for your cause. Every donation helps these individuals and countless ones like them. Please help me reach my fundraising goal to support cancer research and treatment. Together we can make a difference!

Every Ride Fuels Hope
