My Story

1 Jul 2022

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

I will be riding in The Great Cycle Challenge in honor of 3 year old Stella Waltemire. Stella was diagnosed with standard risk B cell ALL (acute lymphocytic leukemia) on 3/1/2021, and will be undergoing chemotherapy treatment until May of 2023. Her mother Sam writes: “As the parent of practically a baby at diagnosis, and who’s now almost a year into this nightmare, one of the most consistent feelings for me has been helplessness. Sometimes you can’t take away the pain, or the fatigue, or the sadness, or tiredness, or worst of all, do anything about the emotional puddle your child melts into during the seemingly never ending steroid pulses. Sometimes a hug, or mommy’s arms, doesn’t make everything better, and there’s nothing worse than feeling like there’s nothing you can do to turn your child’s world upright again. A 20 month old really cannot comprehend when you try to explain to them what’s happening and that the treatments are to help them. In all honesty, those words probably wouldn’t do a whole lot of good anyway. If we can help to inspire people to donate, which aids in research and growth, for less awful, toxic, drugs to treat this rotten disease, then I’ll do anything in my power to help bring that change to fruition.” I am here to do my part to raise money for childhood cancer research and I hope my friends and family will donate so we can help find a cure for Stella and so many other children fighting cancer like her! Thank You!
