Most of you know my own cancer journey has been quite active and difficult this past year. I continue to fight with as much courage, dignity, hope and faith as I can. I am also riding IN MEMORY of my dear friend Shelley Malinowski who lost her battle in November; my dear mother Betty Hedges, my brother Terry Hedges, Greg Kuehne, Father-in-law Mario Raymond, Uncle Larry Lucarelli, Debra Samland; and IN HONOR of the fighters Sharon, Ed, my dear loving husband who is a prostrate cancer survivor this year- Jimmy, and my sister-in-law Mary Lou, Melissa, Eileen, Maria, Adrianna, and Jim in Georgia.
With one in two men and one in three women in America being diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, most of us know someone who has been affected by this devastating disease.
