This year is different. This year, I am riding in memory of my mother, Judy Klug. Mom fought the good fight for 4 years against myelodysplastic syndrome, then acute myelogenous leukemia. Dr. Elizabeth Griffiths was instrumental in giving mom more time with us before she went home to the Lord.
I am also riding in honor of my sister Judi Gribben, who is a cancer survivor, and one of the strongest women I know.
In addition, I ride in memory of my grandfather, Chester Yauchzy, who was treated at Roswell by Dr. Meir Wetzler; my father-in-law, Don Will; along with many other relatives who have been touched by cancer.
With one in two men and one in three women in America being diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, most of us know someone who has been affected by this devastating disease. You can make a difference by supporting me in The Ride For Roswell.
