I'm Riding For

Nancy Jean

Nancy Jean

It was exactly one month from the time Nancy was diagnosed to the day she was buried. She bravely endured an intense month long battle only to have her heart give way as she entered remission. I ride in tribute to Nancy and her wish to go home, which I wasn't able to do for her. Hopefully, another child will with our help.

My Story

27 Mar 2019

Now that I have two new knees, I have decided it's time to challenge myself and join my daughter and her family this June in the race to cure childhood cancer My hope is to ride 100 miles and raise $200.00 in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer! I will be riding each mile in memory of my first born daughter, Nancy Jean, who left me way too early at the age of three after a month long intense treatment to beat her cancer. My hope is that in my lifetime to see all childhood cancers eradicated.

If you are able please support me in this effort.

Thank you on behalf of myself and all children waiting for a cure. ❤

    There's an option to enter number of miles or time ridden..... I have been entering number of miles. Not because I don't know the time, but because my time conversion would have given me more miles than I road😳😜 (truthfully, that conversion chart looks mighty good some of these days😝😌😩 ) only need a few more miles, so I'll stick to the miles I really rode🚴😇 ..... With my soap operas keeping me company) but a real part of me is so disappointed that 4 minutes a mile average isn't considered good😒😞😣

  • So grateful!
    28 Mar 2019

    In less than 24 hours of posting my challenge for a cure, I met my goal of $200.00. I want to thank each of my donors for their quick support of this endeavor. Since this event is all about raising funds to continue the search for the cure, I decided with a very humble heart to raise my goal to $500.00 in hope that every dollar raised will allow a researcher the resources necessary to successfully discover the cure for all these innocent children...... May our good Lord inspire these hard working researchers, or even just one, we humbly implore! 🙏🙏🙏
