I'm Riding For

Dena Kramer

Dena Kramer

This year I am riding for my rock-n-roll buddy and good friend Dena. She was diagnosed with inflammatory Brest cancer on 10/19/2020. Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC) is rare and accounts for only 2-4% of all breast cancers. Not only is it rare, but it is much more aggressive than other cancers causing it to grow and spread quickly. Dena started her new routine right away, getting a port put in and chemo started in November of 2020. My dear friend is terminal. There is no cure for her diagnosis. If she responds to the new treatments it should stop the spread and help her live longer. She is strong and positive but has come to accept what is to come. Love ya girl and keep on rockin!

My Story

11 Jul 2021

I am excited to announce that I have excepted the roll of the Great Cycle Challenge spokesman to help spread the word to help fight kids' cancer!

Why? Because right now, cancer is the biggest killer of children from disease in the United States. 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.

So I am raising funds through my challenge to help these kids and support Children's Cancer Research Fund to allow them to continue their work to develop lifesaving treatments and find a cure for childhood cancer.

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

Your support will change little lives.

Thank you.
