I still can picture my dad at 70 riding his (my old) ten speed with the handle bars turned up as a means of transportation. It's in his memory that I ride to raise funds for this worthy cause. This is my 5th year of riding and I am proud to say there will be 5 family members riding this year in his name.
Those of you that knew my father always knew him to be very active, and watching cancer take his strenght and eventually his life is something I wish no one would every have to go through again.
With one in two men and one in three women in America being diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, most of us know someone who has been affected by this devastating disease - or it may even be you who was effected.
You can make a difference by supporting me in The Ride For Roswell. Funds raised support research and compassionate, innovative patient care programs at Roswell Park Cancer Institute, which we are fortunate to have right here in Buffalo.
I know it is impossible to give to every funraiser you read about, but please consider making a donation today. Together, we can help find cancer cures and save lives.
