Thank you for visiting our Team Madonia page! We are riding again this year in loving memory of Jake, who fought a courageous 10 year battle with synovial sarcoma. Although diagnosed at a young age, Jake still went on to graduate from UB with his Masters and BSN, and obtain many awards for his athletic abilities. Jake worked as a pediatric and critical care nurse at Roswell Park, and was ultimately promoted to a nurse manager! Jake loved taking care of patients, and believed in the mission of Roswell Park-- one of his proudest accomplishments was receiving the DAISY award for his exceptional nursing care. Everything Jake said or did was in hopes to help families suffered from cancer. His beauitful wife Lorrina, as well as many other family and friends would like to ride this year to not only raise money for Roswell but to honor Jake and the passion he had for providing compassionate care to those suffering from cancer.
This is much more than a bike ride — it’s our commitment to create a world where no one has to fear a cancer diagnosis.
Your donation might provide the funding that the researchers at Roswell Park need 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.
You can make a difference in the fight against cancer by supporting our fundraising efforts. In fact, for every dollar donated, Roswell Park can leverage an additional $13 in new grant funding!
Thank you in advance for your support!
