On June 19, 2017, the doctor said 3 words that turned my world upside down; "You have Cancer". While training to ride in my first Pelotonia, I was diagnosed with blood Cancer, for which there is no cure, YET. I am now taking oral chemotherapy, for the rest of my life, until a cure is found. I am luckier than many people I know that have Cancer. Mine is manageable, so far.
Even before my diagnosis, I have been affected by this horrible disease. I lost my grandfather as a young child to Leukemia, and my grandmother, while I was a freshman in college, to breast Cancer.
Last year one of my favorite people in the entire world, my Aunt Dorothy (Dodo), was diagnosed with Colon Cancer on February 26, and lost her fight to this Cancer that metastacized to her liver on April 29, 2018.
Nobody is safe, young or old, no matter your race, religion, or walk of life, it can affect you. That is why we ride! This Pelotonia movement is so that nobody ever has to hear those 3 words ever again..."You have Cancer"!
