Gabe Littlefield

Gabe Littlefield

This year I am dedicating my Great Cycle Challenge ride to Gabe Littlefield of Portsmouth. Gabe passed away on June 5, 2019 at the age of 10. In June of 2018 he was diagnosed with osteosarcoma or bone cancer. Osteosarcoma is rare form of cancer averaging less than 400 cases a year. Gabe was a unique, straight forward and unpredictable young man. He will be remembered by his family and friends for kindness and strong will. Gabe enjoyed playing with Nerf guns and making TikTok videos, but his passion was Legos. Gabe’s Lego creations were amazing and showed his limitless imagination and creativity. Not to be forgotten was his love of animals and nature. He considered himself a devoted guardian of both. gabesgotthis.org

My Story

5 Jun 2019

This June, 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 3 years now. Matt was able to return to Norwich University in Vermont and graduated magna cum laude in criminal justice in 2019.

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.
