This September I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer.
I will be riding to raise funds to support Children’s Cancer Research Fund. I am riding in honor of Lily. Her story is below.
6-year-old Lily has made a special sign to mark the day and to remind us of the importance of finding safer and more effective treatments for childhood cancer. 💛
This brave girl has finished her last cycle of chemotherapy, but she's still enduring side effects from the intense treatment. 😞
Unfortunately, one of Lily's medications, vincristine, may have caused a heart disorder known as tachycardia. 😥
This means Lily has to wear a 24-hour Holter monitor so her care team can assess the condition of her heart. 🫀
"I’m so happy that Lily finished her last dose of chemo, it’s such an amazing milestone. At the same time, I’m so frustrated that it’s impacted multiple organs like her pancreas, adrenal glands, skin, legs, brain, and now heart," her mom said.
We dedicate our movement to Lily and all the brave kids who have to fight the terrible impacts of cancer. ✊
Your support will change little lives.
