Hello, my name is Katie Johnson and this is my second year participating in the Ride For Roswell. I was introduced to the ride by a friend of mine who has done it for many years and she loves it! My Grandfather was diagnosed and treated for prostate cancer a few years ago and is doing very well. Since I first signed up to participate with my friend last summer, the ride has become even more meaningful because my Grandmother was diagnosed with breast cancer. She has maintenance treatments now and is doing well. In addition, my Mother was diagnosed with melanoma this winter and is cancer free after several surgeries; we are thankful that it was caught early. Like many, my family has been affected by cancer. I’m looking forward to participating and helping raise money for people with cancer… a cure, obviously, being the goal.
