Like so many other medical conditions, this was something that wasn’t relevant to my life. It was supposed to only ever happen to “other people.” However, as we all eventually learn, youthful naivety can only last so long.
The first time cancer effected my world was the winter of 2017. A dear friend had recently been promoted, bought a house and was engaged. He was on the fast track of the American dream and suddenly that all changed due to a stomach ache. Turns out, he had stage 4 Colon cancer.
The second time cancer effected my world was the summer of 2018. I look down and see my mom calling and as sons are prone to do, I simply assumed she needed help moving something heavy at the house. Low and behold, her kidneys aren’t functioning the way they’re supposed to and she has a mass growing into her Pancreas.
Even as a bystander, I can tell you first hand that cancer truly wreaks havoc on people and their lives. I’ve been fortunate enough to see both my friend and mother recover with excellent results, but I also know that others aren’t always so lucky.
It is for these reasons that I decided to ride in Pelatonia for the first time this year. Not only for those who must endure the journey head on, but also those friends and families who share in that journey.
