I'm Riding For

Daughter Stephanie

Daughter Stephanie

'TWAS HER THINKING OF OTHERS THAT MADE YOU THINK OF HER........... At the start of my nursing career, I worked on the pediatric unit and cared for children with cancer. It was heartbreaking to see these children and their families battle this evil. After working an evening shift, I would hug and kiss my girls as they peacefully slept. So thankful they were healthy. Little did I know that my daughter, Stephanie, would one day be diagnosed with cancer. She fought a courageous battle, but sadly cancer won. Cancer seems to like my family, from siblings to cousins, aunts and uncles. My brother, Allan, passed away from pancreatic cancer. My dear sister, Sylvia, is a breast cancer survivor. From experiencing it first hand, seeing your child (no matter how young or old) go through treatments and fighting so hard for their life is devastating. This is why I ride, for every child (and adult) fighting for their life and for those who are no longer with us.

My Story

23 Jul 2022

This September, I will again be participating in the Great Cycle Challenge to 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.
