   Congrats! Keep going!

I’m excited to share with you that I’ll be participating in Pelotonia as a Rider by raising funds for cancer research! I've wanted to do this for awhile now, so here's to action!  My mom, Sally, was the greatest influence of my life.  If you know me, you sorta know the kind of woman she was too.  She was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1991.  It was a small tumor and caught early.  After surgery and treatment she thought the battle was won.  Unfortunately, the cancer came back with a vengeance 10 years later.  She died in 2003.  She never got to meet my kids.  She never got to be a grandma.  I never got to ask her mom advice.  I still can get pretty sad at times, feeling cheated and robbed of my mom.  BUT, I can also feel pretty angry that CANCER did this to my family.  Please help me end this terrible disease and get angry with me!

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 consider supporting me today by making a donation to support my ride.  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. Pelotonia has broken records in the last ten years and we are setting out to do more than we ever have before.
