    This year, Team Saylor Strong rides for sweet little Saylor Newton!

    Saylor was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma, a type of Bone Cancer. Our miles and your donations help further cancer research and help little ones like Saylor. Below is her story from her mom, Chloe:

    In the middle of November 2019, Saylor complained of some left arm pain- so we took her in to see our doctor. He took an X-Ray and the results were concerning, so then we got an MRI the next day. Based on those results he immediately sent us to the University of Minnesota Children’s Hospital. We spent 4 days there where they ran tests and were 99% sure that she had a bone infection. They sent us home with antibiotics that she would be on for 4 weeks. We also saw our doctor here weekly and Saylor's pain went away. So we assumed she was getting better.

    On December 9th, 2019 Saylor started complaining of arm pain again, we were surprised since she was almost done with her antibiotics and shouldn’t be in any pain. Our doctor here again saw us right away and got another X-Ray. The results looked different than her first X-Ray from a couple of weeks ago. He then sent us back to the U of M Children’s Hospital. We spent a week getting another MRI, a biopsy, and more blood work.

    Unfortunately, when her biopsy results came back they showed the presence of cancer cells on December 12th, 2019. A few days later her doctors were able to diagnosis her with Ewing Sarcoma. This type of cancer tends to generally happen to teenagers and is extremely rare in children under 5. But her doctors are confident treating her and have been wonderful in helping us through every step of the way.

    She completed 6 rounds of chemo, then she had surgery to try and remove her cancerous bone and save her arm. A bone graft was placed along with plates and screws. A week and a half later we got a phone call that broke our hearts. The margins from her surgery were positive in 2 places and unfortunately, there was no way to save her arm. She had another round of chemo, and then on April 24th, 2020, she underwent another surgery to amputate her arm. She now has to complete 14 rounds of chemo total and we hope to be done in August of 2020.

    This September, Team Saylor is taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!

    Why? Because right now, cancer is the biggest killer of children from disease in the United States. Over 15,700 children are diagnosed every year, and sadly, 38 children die of cancer every week.

    Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

    So we are raising funds through our challenge to help these kids and support Children's Cancer Research Fund to allow them to continue their work to develop lifesaving treatments and find a cure for childhood cancer.

    Please support us by making a donation to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

    Your support will change little lives.

    Thank you.
