I'm Riding For

Bella

Bella

If you remember, three years ago, we rode for Bella. Bella was only 5 years old when she was diagnosed with hepatoblastoma, a form of liver cancer, and has since needed two liver transplants. This is Bella today (actually last year's photo) thanks to people like us; none of us is as strong as all of us so let's join together and help kids like Bella. There are thousands of kids like her; that’s who you’re helping! Please, every little bit counts. Thanks

My Story

2 Sep 2022

“Attitude is the difference between an ordeal & an adventure." Jerry Senatore

First, a clarification - I’m not riding in memory of Bella; she is doing great today, thanks to friends like you.

If you are receiving this e-mail then you recognize that quote from my friend Jerry, 9/11 first responder, whose legacy has helped us support the Cause before, while asking for nothing in return. I know he appreciates all you’ve done in the past to support his legacy & that of many others.

In September, I am riding in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer! Today, cancer is the biggest killer of children from disease in the US. 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!

Let's join together to help these kids & support Children's Cancer Research Fund, allowing them to continue their work to develop lifesaving treatments and find a cure for childhood cancer.

Please support me by making a donation. Your support will change little lives.

Thank you.
