|$0 My Commitment: $1,500.00|
I’ve joined the Greatest Team Ever, a community of riders, virtual riders, volunteers, researchers, donors, donors and passionate fundraisers who committed to join forces to make amazing things happen. In just ten years the Pelotonia community raised over $184 million for cancer research. But we aren’t stopping there. Every single dollar we raise is invested in innovative cancer research, the brightest minds and ideas, and the tools and technology needed to reach our one goal. Please join me in supporting this cause and let’s save lives. Remember - 100% of every single dollar raised is directed to life-saving cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center-James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute. Your support matters. Join me. Together, we are unstoppable.
Cancer has touched the life of every person in some way. My most personal way, is one I don't speak of much. I was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2011. Thankfully, it was early enough, and I was young and healthy enough that I was given the option by my OBGYN to start seeing an oncologist for therapy, or she also was open to try and remove the portion of my cervix that was affected. I was devastated, 22, engaged, and didn't know what to do. My response, was along the lines of ''you're the doctor...what should I do?" She replied "There are risks in either treatment, but, I can get all of it." So, I went for the removal. It is a fairly common procedure, LEEP procedure with partial removal but, an abnormally large portion of my cervix was removed. However, I am so thankful, since then all paps have come back normal and only minor complications could meet me in the future. My run in with cancer was a brief one, but that is my personal story at least. If you took the time to read this, then...thank you.
Moreso, My best friend's youngest sister, Caroline lost her battle with cancer in 2012 after a long hard fight. I still have yet to see such an angel on this earth like her. My husband's mother had breast cancer in the 80s and survived after chemo and a mastectomy. She just passed away in 2017 of heart failure. She always made sure to make a mission out of supporting those fighting cancer and I want to carry this on.
