Please read my story...

My Dad.  This year I ride for the Man that taught me the value of a dollar, never to lie, practice what you preach, make traditions, do unto others as you would have them do unto you and how to love without any conditions.  My Dad.  He is such a champ and I mean that in the truest sense of the word, like Rocky Balboa Champ.  Here is why...

My Dad was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer 18 years ago.  It has returned three times since and he is living with it now.  10 years ago he developed malignant skin cancer on his bottom lip and had that cut out, he grew a new lip.  He has been living with Stage 4 Kidney failure for several years and over the course of the last year he fell and crushed his pelvis and shattered his shoulder.  Then on November 23rd, my Dad was diagnosed with Stage 4 Colon Cancer.  He had surgery to remove the tunor and was scheduled to begin chemo January 23rd, 2020.  On Christmas Eve, we got news that crumbled our world, my Dad also had pancreatic cancer.  PANCREATIC CANCER.  But guess what?  When my Mom and I went into the room to tell him he looked at us and said "I walk with the Lord and if he's ready for me, I'll go.  But I would like to stay longer".  He never cried a tear. 

Life as I knew it changed.  My family came together and we cried, we held eachother and we prayed and still pray for a miracle.   As I type today 2/20/20, my Dad has gone through two rounds of chemo cocktail for both colon and pancreatic cancers.  Yesterdays chemo was cancelled due to bloodwork.  He will continue for the next two months and then we will see if the tumors have shrunk. 

The doctor said some pancreatic cancer patients live less than six months BUT there have been cases where a patient can live 52 months.  That's 4.3 years.  So you might say "Wow!  That's a long time to live with pancreatic cancer, that's great!".  I say 4.3 years isn't nearly long enough for me to have my Dad here on earth. 

I ride for my Dad, for those 4.3 years to turn into 5.5, 8.8, 10.3 and then a lifetime.  If you know my Dad you already know the champ he is.  The amazing and generous heart this man has.  I want him to live.  He's my Dad and I'm riding for him. 

I'd love for you to ride along with me.  Your donation will impact my Dad and so many others.  Thank you.
