|$0 My Commitment: $5,000.00|
Cancer sucks! So many of my friends. coworkers, and family members have lost teir loved ones this year due to cancer. Please help me be part of the cure! I ride for all of us.
My mother had many roles: nurse, mother to 5 kids, wife of 42 years, sister to 5 siblings, bexley librarian, and beautiful strong role model. She added "cancer crusader" to this list when she was diagnosed in the fall of 2014 with MDS. Her MDS quickly became acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and she lived for 5 months in a hospital bed - most of that time at the James. This blood cancer became a bookend to our conversations and a lightning rod in our lives. Unfortunately my mother's leukemia became too great to overcome. She passed away at the James on July 12th 2015 shortly after her 65th birthday which she celebrated at home.
I want to support the doctors and researchers that are saving lives every day - including extending the quality and quantity of the life of my own mother.
This year, I continue to be a part of the Simply Community team. A non-affiliated group of citizens coming together for ONE GOAL.
I ride with 7 of my favorite people as #ONEGOAL8. Our annual fundraiser and Drag show raised $38,500 last year and well over $57k when including some of the matching fund from the L Brands riders! All together, the ONEGOAL Drag for Pelotonia team surpassed $100,000 raised between us.
This year's show is on Friday, July 26th, @Axis in the Short North.
Remember that every penny of every donation goes directly into the hands of those who will END CANCER.
I am adding the following courageous cancer fighters' names to my jersey this year. They are part of the my community of people affected by cancer. Please send me names of anyone you would like to ride in support or in memory of.
This fight matters. Together we are the greatest team ever.
You are part of this. I am part of this. We ride together.
