22 years old, and I was already a cancer survivor

On the day I turned 23 years old, I was already a cancer survivor. It changed my life. Now I am committed to help others enjoy more birthdays! Click to make your donation!

It was 18 years ago today.  The day that I first became a cancer patient. It was certainly a day that changed my life.

I didn’t think back then what life was going to be like when I was 40 years old.

I was just hoping that I’d get to 23.

And now, all these years later, I am still going and committed to helping create a world that is not afraid of cancer. A world that cure and control cancer once it enters a body in a way that is humane and allows everyone to maintain their quality of life. That is why I am asking everyone to make a donation to my annual PMC ride for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute today.

Would you donate $18 today to help me celebrate my 18th year of survivorship AND to create a cancer-free world? That seems like a pretty good deal. To top it off, I will pledge to ride 1 minute on my trainer tomorrow for each dollar donated before 12 midnight tonight.

PS – Not to hedge my bet here, but should you all outdo yourself and lots of donations come in (a great problem to have right), I will still ride 1 minute on my trainer for each dollar donated today, but will do it with the next week. Seriously, there are only 1,440 minutes in a day and I don’t think I can sit on the trainer for an entire 24 hours. But I would pledge to do it by the end of the week.
