THANK YOU for coming to my page and reading my story. We are all here beause Cancer is a horrible disease that CAN AND WILL BE STOPPED.
Everywhere I go I meet people changed by cancer. Every time I cross the street, put my socks on, or brush my teeth I remember my Auntie B. She taught me so much in my childhood about fairness. She taught me patience. She taught me that complaining gets nothing done. Cancer took her from us and we are forever changed. None of this is fair.
Auntie B may have started my ride, but every year I have more loved ones to ride for. 2020 is no different. This year I ride for my Uncle Wayne whose long stoic battle gave us all a lesson in the will of the human spirit. And also my Ma, whose short battle with Panceatic cancer taught us mercy and grace. I'm registering for my 2020 ride as her Mother's Day gift, our first without her.
The thing is, I used to view cancer as a monster; bigger than anything I could ever fight. That said, my time with Pelotonia has taught me the opposite. Every year I do this ride a new gene is isolated, a new therapy approved; MORE LIVES ARE SAVED. Things are still not fair, but instead of sitting back pouting like I did as a kid, today I'm pedaling and your donated dollars get me there!
I believe in the mission the James Cancer Research Hospital stands for. Because of Pelotonia it will be there for all our loved ones that need it. Thank you in advance for your love and support. Thank you for making a stand ONE WAY: END CANCER.
