I'm Riding For

Nancy Jean

Nancy Jean

My mother lost her oldest daughter, Nancy Jean to leukemia at the age of 3. It was exactly one month from the time Nancy was diagnosed to the day she was buried. She bravely endured an intense month long battle only to have her heart give way as she entered remission. This is one of the reasons why we still need better treatments, designed for our young ones, that ensure they can live to their fullest potential.

My Story

30 Mar 2019

This is my third year riding in The Great Cycle Challenge for The Children's Cancer Research Fund. This year, I am honored to be a Champion of the GCC Program, helping to raise awareness and recruit additional rides for this amazing cause.

I am so excited to have my husband and my two children riding with me this year, as well as other friends and family riding in Nancy Jean's memory from afar. I hope when you read our story and read about how far we still have to go to make sure our children not just survive cancer but go on to live long and fulfilling lives, you will choose to join us either through donation or by starting a ride of your own.

Please help us to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve. Your support will change little lives.

Thank you.

  • Some Facts about Children's Cancer
    30 Mar 2019

    Every 2 seconds...a child is diagnosed with cancer around the world

    Every week in the U.S...more than 300 children are diagnosed and 38 children die

    Childhood Cancer Research Funding receives 4% of all federal funding for Cancer Research

    The causes of childhood cancers, like Nancy Jean's, are largely unknown. They are not the cause of lifestyle or environmental factors as has been determined with many adult onset cancers. This means that we need to fund research specifically for Children's Cancers to understand the causes better and discover more effective treatments.

    The Great Cycle Challenge is a program of The Children's Cancer Research Fund. The have a whole page dedicated to Busting Myths about Children's Cancer (Link Below)
