I am participating in "My" Pelotonia again this year because I still believe in the cause and the goal. I am excited to see how this community engages with the new, wide open format of Pelotonia 2020. Perhaps you will be inspired to participate! It has been 19 and a half years since my diagnosis and curative treatment for prostate cancer. Both my mother and father, as well as one of my sisters were treated successfully for different forms of cancer. Many others of my extended family, friends and patients have been or are being treated for some form of cancer, not always so successfully. The need for research and new treatment for all types of cancer has never been greater.
We have come to a place in history, in this country, in this community where ending cancer is no longer an impossible dream. There are a lot of really smart, capable people committed to making the impossible possible. Given appropriate resources, together we can do this!
It is that simple.
I see this ride as a significant physical, emotional and spiritual challenge, analogous to the many levels of challenge we encounter dealing with cancer. Such challenges are better faced with support from family and friends. I had plenty of support 19 and a half years ago. I am counting on your support again!
100 % of all funds raised by Pelotonia directly support cancer research.
