Matthew

This year I am dedicating my Great Cycle Challenge ride to my stepson Matthew. Matt is an amazing person and someone I strive to be more like. He was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma, went through multiple surgeries, chemotherapy, and radiation. He had to take a year off from college to go through all his treatments and then went back to school and graduated Magna Cum Laude from Norwich University on May 11, 2019. In 2021 Matthew decided to pursue a career as a firefighter and is a certified EMT, recently hired by the Little Compton Fire Department and is attending the RI Fire Academy. #matthewstrong

My Story

15 Sep 2021

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

My inspiration to ride again is for my stepson Matthew. On Sep 15, 2015 Matthew was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma, a rare bone cancer. Matthew went through a 10 hour surgery and countless hours of chemo and radiation treatments.

Matthew has been doing great and he is showing no evidence of cancer (NED) for 5 years now. Matt was able to return to Norwich University in Vermont and graduated magna cum laude in criminal justice in 2019.

In 2021 Matthew decided to pursue a career as a firefighter and is a certified EMT, recently hired by the Little Compton Fire Department and is attending the RI Fire Academy.

Many other children are not and that is why I continue to ride in the Great Cycle Challenge.

Thank you for your consideration!

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

Your support will change little lives.

Thank you.
