Tristan Detlefs

Tristan’s Story - In August 2014, 18 month old Tristan Detlefs and his mother, Athena, were on vacation when she noticed him bruising very easily, his stomach getting bigger without gaining weight and the lymph nodes on his neck were enlarged. Doctors at the local hospital took no blood tests and said that he just had a virus. A wellness visit with his pediatrician a week later resulted in a call instructing Athena to bring Tristan to the Maria Fareri Hospital STAT! Diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL), Tristan required a blood transfusion and platelets. Tristan is in remission after 3½ years of chemotherapy. Thankfully, they have had the never-ending support of doctors, surgeons, friends, and great family members. Tristan’s hobbies include music: singing, dancing, playing guitar, and pretending one of his guitars is a cello. When there is snow, he loves building snowmen and sleigh riding. He also loves playing on the playground and enjoys all types of food.

My Story

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.

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.

Jim

  • I'm Raising My Bar
    26 Jun 2020

    Yes, I'm raising my bar and I'm not talking about my handlebars either! My wife, Marilyn and I completed 50 miles this week, doing 10 miles a day since Monday. The week before we did 34. Sooooo, I'm thinking if we keep this up we can certainly do 200 in September. So I am raising my mileage goal by 130 miles to a new goal of 200.

    There's still plenty of time to support me while I train for this year's ride (hint hint if you haven't donated yet).

    Thanks to everyone who's donated so far and, especially to Marilyn who encourages me to get my aging butt outta bed and onto the trails everyday. Love that woman!!

  • THANKS!!
    16 Jun 2020

    Thanks to everyone who has donated so far to put me over the $500 mark and helped me to earn my 2020 GCC jersey! Christened it today with a lovely 6 mile ride through the Kitchawan Preserve in Yorktown Heights, NY. The photo was taken by my lovely wife, Marilyn, on the railroad bridge crossing the Old Croton Reservoir.

    btw...I AM smiling ... it's the 'stache that gets in the way ;-)

    THANKS!!
