My Story

27 Aug 2021

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

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. I remember Ben going for treatments in the morning and coming back to school in the afternoon. He is still winning the battle ten years later, but there are permanent costs to his body! On the days that are windy, hot, or rainy, or I don't feel like riding, I imagine being a child enduring chemo. There's motivation!

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. This is a good charity; 85% of its funds go directly to research. I checked that out before participating.

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

Your support will change lives!

Thank you.
