The Ride For Roswell is entering its 22nd year!!! This amazing event has been growing every year and has accomplished so much for cancer research and patient care programs, but there is still so much more to be done!
You all have contributed greatly to the success of this event over these many years and we hope you can be a part of this incredible effort again this year!
This is a very special year for me, as I found out firsthand what your donations mean to all the patients at Roswell.
This fall my twin sister Nancy was diagnosed with breast cancer. I was devastated to hear this news, because my middle sister Randi also heard that very same news 5 years ago. So if that wasn’t bad enough, to my surprise, I too heard that devastating news within one month of my twin being diagnosed with breast Cancer. Now 3 out of my 5 sisters have been touched by this disease.
I am happy to say after several months of surgery and radiation my sister and I have completed our treatments with very good outcomes. We feel very blessed to have wonderful doctors, nurses and technicians that took exceptional care of us during our treatments and my middle sister will be celebrating 5 years cancer free this summer! My mother is looking after all of us!
For the past 10 years I have dedicated my Ride to the “ SNO” girls and formed a team in their name. These gals are brave women who have conquered this disease and celebrate their survivorship every day. My sisters and I are now among this special group of women.
It is for them, and for all those “SNO Girls” who will need our help going forward, that we continue to help fund these very important programs. For every dollar you donate, it will generate an additional $13 in new research grant funding. These grant monies are so important, as they are seed money for many new programs, clinical trials and improved therapies and vaccines.
Help me fundraise in honor of all our loved ones, family and friends who are fighting the fight against this disease, and give them hope, that cures are just a donation away.
Whatever you can do will be greatly appreciated!!
Again, thank you for your generosity and support!! You truly are making a difference!!!
Join my team if you can. Hope to see many of you on Ride day!!! Visit me in the Extra Mile Club Tent!!
With heartfelt Thanks and Appreciation,
