My Story

7 Jun 2019

You may know that I commute by bike every day.  This year I am putting those miles to work for the 2019 Great Cycle Challenge.  I'll be riding 250 miles this month to fight kids' cancer!

I am a cancer survivor; I went through treatment in 2004.  My outcome was positive, but not everyone's is.  I would not wish cancer or its treatment on anyone, particularly a child.  Yet children in my kids' elementary school are bravely fighting this disease. It's time to do something for them.

Cancer is the worst killer of children from disease in the US – 38 children die of cancer every week.  My experience gives me insight into what these kids and their families face every day and I can tell you, it's not fun.  Kids should be living life, NOT fighting for it.

Please support me by making a donation to give these kids brighter futures. All donations are tax-deductible and will go to the Children's Cancer Research Fund, to continue work to find a cure for childhood cancer.

Thank you!
