Michele Louis Simelane and Reynolds Pearson

My daughter Michele was diagnosed with ALL on the eve of her 20th birtthday. When the recommended treatment failed she was saved by a bone marrow transplant from her brother and she won over her Leukemia/Lymphoma, albeit with lots and up and downs for almost fifteen years. She achieved many of her post cancer goals, went to college, travel the world and worked in nature conservation programs at home and abroad in Namibia. As a survivor she remained a great motivator in support of many fundraising efforts and a lover of all forms of existence. The say: " Lighting never strike twice in the same place" but it did for her when she was afflicted a Triple Negative Breast cancer. It was a particularly aggressive form of breast cancer and it took her life. She received her BA on her hospice bed, surrounded by her husband, her family and friends and left us with a legacy for a profound love for life that is inspiring us to participate in the Great Cycle Challenge.

My Story

1 Aug 2022

This September, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer for the second year in a row, inspired by the courageous fund-raising effort my grand son Leroi did last year and continues to do.

Why? Because right now, cancer is the biggest killer of children from disease in the United States. Over 15,700 children are diagnosed every year, and sadly, 38 children die of cancer every week.

Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

So I am raising funds through my challenge to help these kids and support Children's Cancer Research Fund to allow them to continue their work to develop lifesaving treatments and find a cure for childhood cancer.

Please support me by making a donation to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

Your support will change little lives.

Thank you.

    1 Aug 2022

    I have the honor of supporting my grand son who will ride for a friend and in memory of our departed daughter. Last year, Leroi impressed us all by riding 301 miles and raising over 5000 dollars for the cause. He wants to do it again and perhaps even reach higher goals and that makes it thrilling for me and my cycling buddies to put on the miles and the dollars.
