My Story

30 Jul 2020

This September, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer for the fourth year in a row!

Why? Because right now, cancer is 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.

Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

So I am raising funds through my challenge to help these kids and support Children's Cancer Research Fund to allow them to continue their work to develop lifesaving treatments and find a cure for childhood cancer.

Please support me by making a donation to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

Your support will change little lives.

Thank you.

  • David Ramos+
    26 Aug 2020

    David was a parishioner of mine when I was at Holy Rosary/Santo Rosario in Minneapolis. He was visiting family in Mexico and went to a doctor there where they discovered he had advanced leukemia. He died on his way home to his parents. He was just 18 years old. I will keep David with me on my ride next month. Thanks for supporting this cause to kick childhood cancer's butt. And please pray for David's family.
