I'm Riding For

DeeDee

Although DeeDee's (my wife) cancer was not childhood cancer, her 10 year fight was real, and in the end a very sad and fast deterioration. Riding to help raise funds for cancer research is just one way of honoring her memory.

My Story

21 Jul 2021

This year's Great Cycle Challenge takes on a new meaning for me. Instead of riding in support of my wife's fight against cancer, this year's ride is in memory of her life and her 10 year battle that ended last October.

For those who knew her, DeeDee was a ray of sunshine who always made people feel special. That cancer brought an untimely end the her life is an unfair tragedy that just cannot be explained.

Although hers was not childhood cancer, I firmly believe that breakthroughs in childhood cancer can open doors to treatment options for other forms of cancer. Ultimately #CancerSucks!

So, this year, I am again riding to help support Cancer Research so researchers can continue their work to develop lifesaving treatments and find a cure.

Please support me by making a donation to give cancer patients a ray of hope and sunshine in an otherwise very difficult world.

Your support will change lives.

Thank you

Greg
