   Congrats! Keep going!

I ride for family; I ride because research has given us 14 more years as a family.

 

14 years ago, I was living life as an average high school senior when, we were devastated to learn, that my dad had cancer.  It was at that time when I fully came to terms with the reality that tomorrow is a gift and never a guarantee.  Small moments and daily occurrences that year where cherished in ways I previously had not.  I yearned for the future to arrive quickly with the hope to have Dad by my side.

 

After an initial surgery, months of treatment, and another surgery, we were elated to hear the diagnosis of “in remission”.  Our family is eternally grateful to each and every researcher through the years, the amazing team of nurses and doctors, and above all God.

 

Unfortunately, cancer did not stop with my dad.  My aunt has endured numerous battles with cancer, each time triumphing over the disease.  Both my mom and her mom have also fought the disease and won.  Unfortunately, even the toughest of fighters occasionally lose.  I lost my grandpa, a WWII Veteran and devoted family man, along with dad’s mom, the family’s rock, who died much too young.

 

For each one I ride, for my family and yours.  I ride to honor the memory and to preserve the future.  I ride for the doctors, nurses, scientists, and most of all for those members of families who cannot themselves ride.  I ride for more time be it 14 seconds, hours, or months.  I ride in hopes we all are granted 14 bonus years.

 

A warm heartfelt thank you for your support, donation, and gift to families!

 

 

Throughout the spring and summer months, I will continue to post about my training journey and to reflect on the past 14 years.
