I'm Riding For

My sisters Susan Easterbrook & Nancy Dunn

My sisters Susan Easterbrook & Nancy Dunn

I am riding for all the sweet children impacted by cancer and for my sisters who I lost to cancer. Maybe if we can make progress with childhood cancer research it will lead to a cure for all cancer. I am a survivor, my sister Emily recently diagnosed and have lost too much, Susie as recently as last June in the middle of the ride. So many have reached out who have been impacted by childhood cancer. Lets do this!!!

My Story

29 Apr 2018

Year #3 for me. My sister called me an Accidental Advocate. True. I saw the Great Cycle Challenge on Facebook just when I was looking for some way to give back other than just writing checks.

We need a cure for childhood cancer. My heart weeps for children dying every week. While I have not met these courageous children I have experienced the relief of beating cancer (hopefully) as well as watching it take away my family, most recently my best friend and sister Susie. I am not in great shape to say the least, #couchpotato3, but my love for this cause gets me moving and makes me ask for donations even if it makes me uncomfortable because I might just get YES! Each dollar gets our researchers closer to a cure.

My Challenge

  • Thankful I had my Sister Susie for as long as I did
    18 May 2018

    The Heavens gained a star when we lost my sister last June. It is through her strength that I am raising my goal and will continue to do so as long as you wonderful angels will donate. I am fighting through my own issues so that I can be a part of finding cures for children’s cancer. Today and next week more iron! Please cheer me on and consider a donation. I am forever thankful for the generosity shown over the last 3 years. 18 more days before I start my ride!!

    Thankful I had my Sister Susie for as long as I did

  • Gearing up & Greatfulness
    11 May 2018

    Today a dear friend got me over the $5000 mark 💞. I was also touched to get a call from John Hallberg CEO of Children’s Cancer Research Fund thanking me for all my support these last 3 years. We had a nice chat and I thanked him. Now in turn I must thank you. Without your support I would not be able to do this. I am riding as a survivor for my sisters, and all children like MacKale, Gabby & Nat. Please help me help them. There is great news with the clinical trial for osteosarcoma having started in January. It is very difficult to treat so this really is awesome. Target is also tied to Breast cancer which has devasted my family so I am praying for a treatment for both!

  • Sisters forever
    29 Apr 2018

    I am tired of losing my family to cancer but at least we had lives unlike the little kids stricken at such a young age. As May approaches I am pushing towards a new goal and hope you can join me. My faith is strong that we are helping fund breakthrough cures. 🚴‍♀️🚴‍♀️🚴‍♀️

    Sisters forever

  • To my sisters Nancy & Susie
    28 Apr 2018

    My ride is dedicated to my sisters we lost to cancer. I miss them terribly.

    I know how the families of the children being treated feel, at least in part. It is just so unfair for the little ones. I am riding in hopes the research we are helping to fund is successful. Let’s get those kids outside to play!

    To my sisters Nancy & Susie

  • Why are you doing this again? my back whines
    31 Mar 2018

    This couch potato believes in miracles but miracles don’t always happen so I push myself to get on my bike to help out and be a voice for those fighting through treatments. One huge miracle is that through divine intervention and your support I have been a top contributor for the last 2 years. Maybe again this year?

    We need a cure for childhood cancer. While I have not met these courageous children I have experienced the joy of beating cancer as well as watching it take away my family, most recently my best friend and sister Susie. I am not in great shape to say the least but my love for this cause gets me moving and makes me ask for donations even if it makes me uncomfortable because I might just get YES! Each dollar gets our researchers closer to a cure.

    Please pray for Callie, our poster child who is now in hospice. She agreed to more chemo so she could spend Easter with her family. On the eve of Easter I pray she can.

    Why are you doing this again? my back whines
