I have been participating in the Ride for Roswell for many years now, but every year means more now that I'm a survivor instead of just a participant. I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma in August of 2022 after months of doctors appointments, surgeries, and anxiety. The journey since then has been more difficult than I thought it would be in some ways, and easier to handle in others, and the support of my family and friends has been invaluable during this time.
I celebrated my 1 year remission date this January, my hope is for others to be cured so they can celebrate with me and be celebrated for their accomplishment.
If you're going through your own journey right now just remember; YOU ARE STRONG!!! You can do this. No matter what your mind tells you, you will get through this and you will come out the other end stronger than you were before. I'm proud of you for how far you've come.
