|$0||My Commitment: $1,500.00|
I ride for life! This year's Pelotonia ride is super sweet to me! It has been fourteen years since hearing the words cancer and realizing they were directed at me - and my dear Chris asking me if I understood I had an 18% chance of survival at 5 years. Well, my CA-125 and PET scan are just in - and it is back! This year I am committing to Virtually Ride!
Research and treatment have come so far in 14 years. There are so many new drugs that have come out over the past few years, PARP inhibitors, immunotherapy, and biologics that have made a significant difference. Genetic testing has improved significantly both in terms of who it is recommended for and what it is able to detect. I have done mine and continue to get information from the results as new information is discovered.
I am so happy to be on the bike and at the James - fourteen years later - and proud of what The James has become and so grateful for it's presence in my life. Please join me in contributing to the research done at The James to end the diagnosis of cancer as a debilitating or fatal disease.
