I'm Riding For

Allyson "Ally" Cruz

Allyson "Ally" Cruz

I met Ally in the fall of 2013, in Phoenix Children's Hospital. She was 4 years old and being treated for neuroblastoma. We walked into her room and I was amazed at how someone so sick could light up a room so brightly. She was a precious soul who was taken way too soon. She passed away in March the following year, but she left a lasting impression. I'm riding in her memory, and in the hope that no other family ever has to experience that kind of loss. #gonetoosoon #foreverinourhearts

My Story

18 May 2021

This September, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!

A little over 7 years ago, I met a precious little girl who was fighting neuroblastoma. Her name was Ally, and she was almost 4 when I met her. I had met her parents through family and heard their daughter was fighting cancer in Phoenix Children's Hospital. When I walked in, her smile and spirit lit up the hospital room. I became friends with her family over the following months, and sadly, Ally lost her fight in March of 2014, at 4 years and 5 months old. I will never forget how her light affected me.

I'm a father now, and my son is the age Ally was when she was taken home. I'm riding so families like Ally's win the fight more and more frequently. Too many precious souls are taken way too soon by cancer, and I'm asking you to help me help them live.
