Would you please find it in your heart to contribute to this year’s important and emotional Ride for Roswell on June 23rd. As many of you know, every summer I ride along with 8,000+ cyclists in the Ride for Roswell. This year marks my 15th year participating in this great event that brings the community together to support the leading-edge cancer research and lifesaving treatments at Roswell Park Cancer Institute. So many of you have so generously donated in the past, and I am writing again this year to ask you to please make a pledge in an effort to help raise funds to support this amazing institute we are so lucky to have in our own backyard.
Almost all of us know someone touched by cancer. My family’s personal story goes back to 2003, when I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. The care and knowledge at Roswell Park was world class which helped me beat that cancer, as well early-diagnosis of Prostate Cancer in 2008. The most terrific impact, however, Roswell has had on my family is helping my wife live as normal a life as possible after her 2010 diagnosis of a chronic form of Leukemia. While two others in our family have passed away from Pancreatic Cancer.
Thanks to the efforts of the physicians and researchers at Roswell Park, more people, like my wife, are living with cancer rather than dying from it. 100% of the money that you contribute goes directly to the development of more groundbreaking efforts. Proceeds from the Ride have helped fund research into vaccines against cancer, tests determining whether a cancer is likely to spread or not, and into more effective treatments, like those performed on my wife and myself. Last year our friends and family were so very gracious to contribute $1000.00 I hope to do the same this year. To make a pledge simply click on the link below
Thank you for your support! Together, we’ll make a difference in so many lives!
