Caitlin Duncan

Caitlin Duncan

Caitlin was a dear member of my church family and one of the most positive individuals that you would ever meet. A devout Christian, she devoted her life to Jesus and being a positive impact in the lives of everyone she met. She enjoyed listening to Christian music, and she loved her family and friends with all she had. She found out that she had a brain tumor at the young age of 16, she fought a long hard battle of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation treatments. Caitlin passed away at the age of 23. Although her life ended far shorter than it should have, she impacted the lives of many people in a positive and up-lifting way.

My Story

31 Aug 2021

In November 2017 I was 60 years old, 267 lbs and a type II diabetic. I began a health journey with the purchase of an e-bike working up to riding 700 miles in June 2018 for my first Great Cycle Challenge. I reversed my type 2 diabetes (14 years after diagnosis) and remain 100 lbs lighter. This will be my fourth GCC and my second as a Champion for the Knoxville area.

In my professional life its been my privilege to participate for over 30 years in the development of new technology for cancer detection (PET/CT) and treatment (proton therapy).

For the GCC we ride to improve the health of children whose disease is not of their own making - raising funds to support Children's Cancer Research Fund.

Means to achieve unity of purpose is a great concern these days - realizing a world where we don't lose children to cancer would seem a great place to start. Your generous donations are sincerely appreciated.

Thank you!
