   Congrats! Keep going!

My name is Stacy Ruff.  I am a 2 time cancer survivor and this is my 2nd Pelotonia ride.  I'm extremely passionate about Pelotonia.  The James Cancer Hospital saved my life!  I was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma in 2014 a little over a month after I'd given birth to my daughter Skylar.  She and my tumor peacefully co-existed, but once she left it had room to grow and it did just that.  Once we found the cancer it had basically covered all of my mid-section.  It was pressing on my heart & lungs and I was really sick.  I started chemo on November 7th and finished on February 26th.  I not only had a newborn baby at home but I also had  2 year old.  Those little ones gave me all the fight I needed, and they didn't let me take too much time to feel sorry for myself.  I am so lucky to be alive and I owe my life to the James Cancer Hospital and those dedicated to cancer research.  My first Pelotonia was very emotional for me.  It was empowering.  I felt I not only beat my cancer but was able to give back.  I met so many amazing people who are passionate about this goal.  I can't even explain the joy and excitement I felt traveling into each town where the cowbells are ringing and the people are cheering and encouraging.  At one stretch of the ride I met someone who asked why I was riding, I told him "The James saved my life and it's the least I can do."  He asked who my Doctor was and I told him it was Kristy Blum.  Randomly enough he was the person who hired her.  So in a way, he also helped to save my life!  I made sure to thank him.  Year 2 means so much to me. I'd much rather bike 100 miles then do 1 day of chemo!! It is the 10th year of Pelotonia.  This is the first year they are doing a 200 mile ride also--so that is my 2019 mission. The funds raised go directly to cancer research 100%.  What better reason to get on my bike seat for say 6 hours?  Thanks for reading my profile.  Please donate to this amazing cause.  It's a BIG GOAL--to end cancer, but I surely believe it's attainable.
