I'm Riding For

Ava Daniels

Keep fighting, Ava!!!! I'm riding for you!

My Story

30 Apr 2019

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

I'm riding in support of Ava Daniels, a beautiful 12 yr old girl who was classmates with my daughter at Jacksonville Elementary School. Ava has battled cancer since she was 2 years old, surviving 5 recurrences of Leukemia. She is currently at Hopkins, in remission, but battling through another hurdle. I'm hopeful that she continues to champion each obstacle she faces, and gets to live the life that she deserves.

I also lost a cousin to cancer 10 yrs ago. She was only 45 when she passed from a lengthy battle against breast cancer. The cancer didn't win, she fought to the very end, and lived her life as best she could. I wish Mary Jane Calvo was here today, she was taken way too early.

End of the day, you never think things you read about will impact your life. I want to give back as much as I can, and this is one way I can help.

Much Love
