The list of family members, friends, co-workers, and neighbors diagnosed with cancer continues to grow with the passing of every year. The first year I rode in the Ride for Roswell, I did it in honor of my grandfather, who was diagnosed with prostate and pancreatic cancer and eventually lost that battle. The second year I rode in the Ride for Roswell, I did it in memory of my grandfather and in honor of my Aunt, who was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer, and eventually she lost her battle as well.
This year, my fifth year riding for Roswell, I'm riding in honor and memory of too many loved ones to name. I am so sick of this disease robbing my loved ones of their time, health, and happiness. I am so sick of having to say goodbye to people before I should. And I know I am not the only one. Cancer touches everyone eventually in one way or another, and that is a reality I want to see ended in my lifetime.
Indoor cycling is tough. But you know who is tougher? Cancer patients. So, I am doing this for them.
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!
Please consider making a donation today to help find cures. Together, we can make a difference.
