I'm Riding For

The Shaw Family

The Shaw Family

In April Brian Shaw passed away from a Glioblastoma. Brian’s wife Gina is now looking after her whole family as a single mother of 10. 6 of those children have special needs. They have endured more than any family should have to in one lifetime.They are part of my IOH family and I will pedal in their honor. Rest softy Brian on your bed of white pillows!

My Story

29 Jun 2021

11 years ago, I was diagnosed with a grade 2 astrocytoma, I researched the best hospitals to have my initial scans looked at. NYU, Weill Cornell, Yale, Duke Cancer center, and a few more. I decided on Weill Cornell.

I began treatments with 6 weeks of radiation, and when I finished that I went onto 3 months of Temodar at home. I had a follow up scan and the the tumor had grown. My Oncologist had suggested trying a drug called Avastin. I was on Avastin for a total of 36 months. At that point, the tumor had grown again and they had no further treatments.

We had a meeting and they gave me 3 options, the 1st 2 sucked and I said no way. The 3rd was to do nothing and take my chances. The prognosis for option 3 was 4 months. That was 8 years ago and many miles on my bike. RIDE TO LIVE, LIVE TO RIDE

I challenge myself and all of you to help me eradicate cancer. This is always my goal for participating in this event every year. Help me be a GCC HERO.

    I did it!!!! So happy, but my last ride was a killer ride as I had two cables snap 15 miles into my 50 mile ride. So I rode 36 miles in my hardest gear to the bike shop.
