Izzy

Izzy

Izzy's mother called her a Warrior, indeed she was. Izzy and her family looked to their School Family for support, strength, and prayer. As Izzy's mother wrote in one of her blog posts, osteosarcoma is a very complex, recalcitrant disease that will be hard to cure. It requires the application of new concepts and technologies that are expensive to employ." She also noted that the government gives less than 4 cents per dollar for children's cancer research. This is where the Great Cycle Challenge comes in. Riders all over the USA are raising awareness and funds to change this lack of funding and bolster research. Izzy will be in my thoughts as I ride my Challenge this year. Your donations and support will mean a lot. Thank you.

My Story

29 Aug 2022

September 2022--I do not have GREAT power, but I do have a GREAT responsibility to ride ONE month and help Fight Kids' Cancer. My ride this year took on greater significance, when a student at my school passed away from osteosarcoma. I had hoped to have Izzy in my science class this year. I am dedicating my ride this year in her memory. My riding goal is 350 miles..the total round trip distance from home to work for a week. My GREAT responsibility is to raise $3,356. Every day 46 kids are diagnosed with cancer in the U.S. That is 1,380 in September 2022. Every week, 38 kids in America die from cancer. That is 1,976 in the year 2022. For the 1,380 diagnosed with cancer and the 1,976 that die, for all of those and especially for Izzy, that is why I am RIDING.

Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

Please support me by making a donation to help try and reduce these numbers.

Your support will change little lives.

Thank you.
