Thank you for visiting my fundraising page for the Empire State Ride, a 500+ mile ride across NY state, from NYC to NF in a week! This is likely the greatest challenge I've taken on willingly, in my life! So in answer to the question why, here it is. I may not have been born with the talents of a doctor or researcher in the efforts to find a cancer cure, but in this fight my bike is my weapon. It's the place where I can try to make a difference - and this year it has become even more personal.
Many of you know my husband Norm is a current Roswell patient for the second time around, dealing with something known as carcinoid cancer. It is different in that it does not respond to conventional treatments. So far his course of action has been surgery. All cancers have a 'color', and this one is represented as 'zebra' because it is unusual. So when you see me wearing this pattern, you'll know it's meaning.
Please consider joining this effort toward finding a cancer cure by making a donation. Any amount is appreciated as each dollar adds up to something greater than any of us could accomplish alone. If you're making a donation in memory/honor of a loved one, please let me know. Their name will come along with me for the ride as inspiration. Thank you for your consideration and support.
