I'm Riding For

DeeDee

DeeDee

Although DeeDee's (my wife) cancer is not childhood cancer, her fight is real! Every ache and pain reminds us that she is a cancer patient... A fighting cancer patient. Riding for cancer research is my small way of providing support to her as she goes through this continuing struggle!

My Story

27 Aug 2020

This year's Great Cycle Challenge means more to me than ever!

Why?

Mainly because my wife's 10 year battle with cancer seems to be coming to an end. The chemo options have been exhausted and the disease is now running it's course.

In addition to the personal reason, cancer is also 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.

I firmly believe that breakthroughs in childhood cancer can open doors to treatment options for other forms of cancer. Ultimately #CancerSucks!

People should be living life, not fighting for it.

Because of that - and my love of cycling - 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 these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

Your support will change lives.

Thank you.

    Thank you all my sponsors who donated to the cause, my encouragers who kept me going, and my sharers who helped get the word out! Without each and every one of you, I couldn't have done it!

    Much Love!
