Tomorrow, I Ride


My family is a cancer family.

My paternal grandmother (lung) and grandfather (prostate), my maternal grandmother (breast), my aunt (breast), my mom (breast) and most recently my dad (pancreatic) have all been stricken. And me too (lymphoma).

I made a commitment, before my daughter was even born, that I would give back to those who passed before me.

Each time I ride, I think about that commitment, and pray that my daughter will never have to worry about cancer or ride the PMC because cancer will be beaten forever.

My family is a cancer family.

That is why I ride – because one day, we will win and I have to know that I did my part.
