My Story

8 Jul 2020

This September, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!

Why? In September 2000 my daughter Katie was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). She was in treatment for about two and a half years. It was a grueling journey of hospital stays, clinic visits, bone marrow aspirations, spinal taps, chemotherapy, ER visits, and counts and cultures. And if that isn't enough she also experienced a bought of pancreatitis and blood clots around her liver. She demonstrated amazing resilience through out riding bicycles up and down the hospital corridor (with chemo in tow), playing in the playrooms, and visiting other patients. She is now a long-term survivor.

I am riding with the hope that the money raised will support juvenile cancer research and other children will have a much easier and shorter journey than Katie did.

Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

Thank you for your donation and support for this important cause.
