This year will be my 7th year riding in Pelotonia but more importantly raising funds for The James cancer research. My sister asked me seven years ago to join her in this expedition as her son Grant was battling brain cancer and went to The James for part of his treatment. We have done it every year together except one summer when my sister, brother-in-law and nephews went to live in Texas in order for Grant to receive treatment when the brain cancer returned a second time. In February 2019 my nephew Grant gained his angel wings after his long, heroic fight. I ride each year to bring awareness that funds are needed in order to develop more research to give anyone with cancer a fighting chance. I also ride to show support to my sister and her family. I am honored to ride this year with my sister, Denise Reed and my brother-in-law, Troy Reed. Please consider donating to help find treatments and cures for cancer.
