The Empire State Ride is more than just a bike ride. I am participating in a cycling adventure across New York State to end cancer.
Everyone knows someone whose life has been affected by cancer. This is my opportunity to change the state of cancer research for good. Together, we can fuel groundbreaking discoveries, find cancer cures and save lives.
As a college Freshman I received news that no 18 year old should ever have to hear. My Mom was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer and was given 6 months to live. She beat that prediction and lived to see me graduate. But sadly she died not long after, far too young at age 50. I always thought that I should have done more for her. And now, 40 years later, this is my chance to honor her memory.
I do this for my Mom. For my nephew Craig. For my high school friends Andy and Herb. For my friend Cherie. And for my co-worker Andy.
Support my effort not because of me but because of your own family members, friends and coworkers that have fought the fight, are fighting the fight or have yet to fight the fight.
Please consider making a donation to my efforts today. No donation is too small, and every dollar adds up to something greater than any one of us could accomplish alone. Let’s make a difference together.
