I am participating in The Ride For Roswell on Saturday, June 23! This is much more than a bike ride for me — it’s my commitment to the fight to end cancer. I was diagnosed with Sarcoma in 2016. The treatments took a huge tole on me. I was inpatient on the 6th floor of the main hospital at Roswell. Each treatment the chemo ran for 96 consecutive hours until I could go home. The treatments are long and have lasting side effects. I was told that my chemo was the same drugs that have been given for the past 40 years! There needs to be better effective treatments for Sarcoma patients.
To remove my cancer, my jaw bone and 12 inches of the fibula bone from my leg were removed. For me this was devestating since my favorite hobbies were running and exercising. During my recovery I started spin classes and they played a major roll in getting my strength and physical fitness back. Thinking about doing the Ride for Roswell gave me a purpose to push through some difficult months. Today, I feel strong and looking forward to accomplishing my goal of completing the ride. If I can do The Ride for Roswell, anyone can. I hope by joining my team we can create awareness for Sarcoma and make a much needed difference together.
Please consider making a donation today to help me reach (and exceed) my fundraising goal. Together, we can help find cancer cures and save lives.
