2023 was not a well celebrated year for our family. I lost my daughter to this horrific disease. This year I am riding in her memory. I am currently in remission with Targeted therapy. With continued research and advances in treatment, I am still able to spend extra quality time with family and friends. The last few weeks have been challenging to say the least. Our family is still grieving from the loss of Kaitland. Without everyone’s love, support, and prayers we would have not made it this far. I will not let cancer continue to take from my family or anyone else’s. Help me kick cancers A$$.
I fight for me, I fight in memory of my daughter, Kaitland, I fight for those family we have already lost to this terrible disease, and I fight for all of my patients every day, as I am also fortunate enough to be an employee of this amazing hospital. The day I give up the fight is the day I let cancer win.
This is my fourth time participating in the Ride for Roswell as a rider. Previous years I was fortunate enough to be volunteer and assist with medical needs. My personal goal is to compete the family ride with my family this year. Some physical limitations prevent me from being able to ride a longer distance, but I will not let this stop me. My family and friends are riding with me to help keep me motivated and moving.
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 2024 Ride for Roswell!
Please help me raise critically needed funds to support the thousands of 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!
