Why I Ride

My family is a cancer family – me, my mom, her sister, their mom, and my dad’s dad have all had our bouts with cancer, just since 1996. My grandmother was a 19-year survivor. My grandfather and I had cancer at the same time. And in June of 2014, my dad was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. I cannot tell you how much this disease has pained my family. It has also made us stronger.

It is time for cancer to go away….. we can do this! The PMC is helping in major ways. Let’s make cancer a thing of the past, a story that we tell our children about, a distant memory. This is a battle worth fighting for…. we just need to get the right people the resources to make it happen. Help me make this reality. Donate today!

I ride for myself, and for my family, but I also ride for the future. Check out this video from 60 Minutes about how the future may come sooner than we think.
