My Story

22 May 2019

Everyday, when I wake up, I'm grateful to see the light, take a first breath and arise without discomfort or pain.

But, there are many who aren't as fortunate as I am.

Children are suffering everyday, fighting for their lives as they battle cancer. Almost 16,000 of this children, EVERY YEAR, are diagnosed with cancer...38 of them die EVERY DAY. They wake up, thankful to see another day and ready to face the battle.

Their parents wake everyday, in fear, that they won't be strong enough to face the battle. They wake everyday, in disbelief, that they are helpless in taking away their child's pain. They wake everyday, with hurt so deep, that it's difficult to see a way out of the tragedy surrounding their family.

I am riding for my fifth year to help these children, their parents and their families find the help and hope they need to win the war against cancer. I ride to try and change the statistics. I ride because I am whole...
