Why do I ride in the RIDE for Roswell? I RIDE because it’s the ONLY thing I can do to help in the fight against cancer. I RIDE because words aren’t enough when family or friends lose their battle with cancer, lose a loved one to cancer or have to fight this horrific disease. I RIDE because I can spend one day honoring those who lost their fight to this disease and those who are fighting this disease as well as their family, and the doctors, nurses, medical professionals, medical staff, fundraisers, volunteers and other riders – all who share in a common goal – ending cancer. In the 12+ years I’ve been riding, since I lost my mom to cancer and Adam lost his dad, I can truly say I’ve seen a difference. Is there magic cure – no! But I routinely hear of people winning their battle and living longer to have more time with family through treatments developed right here at Roswell. The statistics remain – 1 in 3 America’s will be diagnosed with cancer. You know my story – my mom, my dad, and Adam’s dad – all hit with cancer. Last year, a dear friend lost her soul mate to brain cancer and another friend lost her mom to breast cancer. This year another young friend recently found out her mom – who is healthy as a horse and runs miles a day - has melanoma and has started treatment at Roswell. Roswell is fighting the good fight and riding to raise funds is the only thing I can do. Please join me in this fight with whatever donation you can make. I'd be honored to RIDE this ride in honor of your loved ones fighting this battle too please just tell me their name when you make your doation.
Best personal regards,
