My Story

16 Sep 2020

Nothing's normal these days. I know there's not a lot of extra money in everyone's pockets, but please help out and dig as deep as you can. Families suffering with cancer, especially kids, have a harder time than ever.

I'm riding in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer. My beautiful niece Maddie died of cancer and the whole tragic fight absolutely sucked (sorry I don't have a better vocabulary but I missed my nap). We can beat cancer, but we need to keep up the fight, and we need your help.

And my trusty sidekicks, B&B, are riding much of the way with me. Whether they like it or not.

  • I'm upping my goals. Won't you help?
    25 Sep 2020

    Hello all! I started with goals of 300 miles and $4000. I upped my mileage to 400, and then to 500. I upped my donation goal to $8000. It would be the most I've ever raised. Will you please help? Even a little bit means a lot to every little kid. Here's what my niece, Lauren, wrote: I know there are a lot of causes to donate to in the world right now. This one is near and dear to my heart and one I think about often this time of year: my Uncle Ned Savoie is riding to raise money for childhood cancer research in honor of my sister, Maddie.

    For a lot of people, a fall chill in the air means pumpkin spice lattes, sweaters, apple picking. But for me it that first nip of fall weather brings back memories of Maddie’s last few weeks on this earth. In a few weeks it’ll be 12 years (!!!) since Maddie lost her battle with Ewing’s Sarcoma at just 10 years old. My uncle has dutifully raised money in her honor for years since. I often wonder what Maddie would be like if she was alive today... she’d be 22... I bet she’d be a firecracker; spunky; and right out there with so many others her age fighting for justice and change. She was an amazing kid, but still, I wonder what her life would’ve been like if she got the chance to live it. I hope you’ll consider donating so that other families battling childhood cancer get the chance to find out.

    Please, if you can, help. Let's show Covid it's not going to stop us.

    I'm upping my goals. Won't you help?
