It's that time of year again. The "Ride for Roswell" to raise funds for cancer research. After two years of limited participation due to the pandemic this year's Ride is returning to its traditional venue at the University of Buffalo and hopefully will set a new record for raising funds for cancer research.
I will be participating again this year (it will my 5th Ride), and this Ride will be my second as a "SURVIVOR" !. As some of you may recall I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Mantle Cell Lymphoma in April 2020.
The medical team at Roswell acted rapidly and aggressively in my treatment. After 6 chemotherapy treatments and a 23 day hospital stay for an autologous stem cell transplant procedure, the cancer is now in remission. I have been receiving bi-monthly maintenance chemotherapy treatments for the past year (two more years to go). These treatments are designed to maintain the remission as long as possible. I cannot say enough good things about everyone at Roswell.
Our team "Save a Rack" is captained by my daughter Callie who was diagnosed with breast cancer nearly five years ago. She underwent a double mastectomy. The surgery was successful and today she is considered a "SURVIVOR". We have committed to participate every year in the Ride For Roswell. Our team will be our biggest yet, even my grandchildren will be riding
I appreciate your consideration in making a donation to cancer research.
Thank you in advance
Cancer doesn’t care. It doesn’t care about age. It doesn’t care about your family or friends. It doesn’t care about what it takes from us — or who it leaves behind.
But I care. I care about making a difference in the future of cancer research and bringing an end to this devastating disease. That’s why I am participating in The Summer of the Ride.
Please help me raise critically needed funds to support the more than 50,000 patients who turn to Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center for hope each year. Your donation provides funding that researchers need in order to investigate new treatment options that could save lives in our community and around the world. For every dollar donated, Roswell Park can leverage an additional $13 in new grant funding!
Please consider making a donation today to help find cures. Together, we can make a difference.
