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.
So why am I doing this?
Leukemia has affected many in my immediate family; my mother, and three of my brothers. My mother at 87 decided against trying the most advanced types of treatment. But my brothers are living leukemia free after successful transplant treatments. I was the stem cell donor for one. The others received bone marrow transplants. My family has profoundly benefited from the ongoing research in blood cancers. Donations made to my fundraising will be specified for blood cancer research through the Roswell Park Alliance Foundation.
We all know 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.
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.
