I am participating in the Ride for Roswell once again this year. The Ride will be held on Saturday, June 24, 2023. I will be riding the 34 mile country route once again. The Ride remains an important part of my summer where I can help people fighting for their lives against cancer.
Please help me raise critically needed funds for cutting-edge cancer research and compassionate patient-care programs at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center. Your donation to my ride might provide the funding that the researchers at Roswell Park need in order to investigate new treatment options that can save lives. These therapies can provide cutting-edge treatment choices to patients in our own community and in cancer centers worldwide.
We have all been touched by this terrible disease. We all know someone suffering from cancer or who has succumbed to its ravages. I am dedicating this to two individuals, one a cancer survivor and one who sadly recently passed due to cancer. The survivor is Peter Piazza, who is currently battling cancer. Dr. Pasquale Bochiechio recently passed away from liver cancer, another life cut short by this dread disease. I continue to ride in memory of Betsey Tibbetts, Dr. Girard Gugino, Dr. Richard Fink, Ashley Plumb, JIll Andolina, Elizabeth DePartout, Renee Lavin, Philip DiCarlo, Marilyn Sulzbach, Kathleen Theal, Dr. George Ferry, and Dr. Mark Feldman. I am also riding in honor of these individuals who are cancer survivors: Jim Williamson, Dr. Raymond Miller, Dr. Sam Carocci, Dr. Maria Maranga, Thomas Ciano, Cy Taylor, Dr. Jack Saia, Mindi May, Rosemary Gimelli-Hanley, Peter Manella, and Mary Cala.
My list increases each year. This shows you how pervasive cancer is. You can make a difference in the fight against cancer by supporting my fundraising efforts. In fact, for every dollar donated, Roswell Park can leverage an additional $13 in new grant funding!
Please consider making a donation today to help me reach (and exceed) my fundraising goal. My goal this year is $2500.00. Together, we can help find cancer cures and save lives. I understand if you can't support me at a previous level, but I ask for a donation that fits you. Thank you very much!
