My Story

7 Feb 2024

This is my 3rd year, riding in the Great Cycle Challenge, and kids cancer is even closer to home...

(⁠*⁠﹏⁠*⁠;⁠)

I am dedicating this year's fundraising to 5 year old Allie, who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Allie has some good days, many more not as good, and fights every day to wear her gorgeous smiles.

Join with me this year to KICK CANCERS BUTT, to give Allie and every kid the hope of a brighter tomorrow!

My Legacy

Here's my personal impact over 3 years to fight kids' cancer and save little lives.

  • 👨🏼‍🎤 TODAY'S ALLIE UPDATE -- FRIDAY MAY 17, 2024
    17 May 2024

    Allie slept a little bit today. I think yesterday caught up with her a bit. She wouldn’t eat dinner. They said to expect her appetite to be affected. She got her first shot at home tonight. She cried, but calmed quickly daddy said.

    Please pray for her appetite, for her to handle the shots better, protection from illness and her count to stay up. They are expecting her to possibly need a transfusion with this treatment. Her little body needs to stay strong.

  • Allie update 4/24 -- Our girl has been admitted 8-(
    24 Apr 2024

    Grandma got the text late last night that our girl was admitted. Please pray for all of them. My heart is broken that I cannot be there.

    Here is what Trevor Whatton posted last night:

    “Unfortunately Allie has been admitted to the hospital due to repeated fevers and a low ANC blood count. They say this stay will be at a minimum 48 hours but with how her numbers have been declining they think it might be longer. I'll post another update once we know more. Thank you for all your donations we really appreciate it!”

  • 👨🏼‍🏫 Here's the Allie Update from Friday April 5th
    6 Apr 2024

    Our girl had a crazy day. Fever came on and hit the mark where they have to take her in. They thought she might be admitted, but thank God, they checked her out and she was allowed to go home! AND her count was back up to 650!!!! Not high enough for treatment tomorrow, so they will check her again on Monday and if ANC is high enough, she will have treatment on Tuesday. Please continue to pray for her count and strength. And pray she is totally healed from this disease. Thank you so much.

    That smile just melts my heart.

  • Allie Update 3/13 -- Look at that snazzy walker!
    13 Mar 2024

    Allie went to school today and did good, but was a bit tired. They got her walker all set up and ready. This will help with her legs a lot. Please pray for her numbers to be good Thursday for treatment Friday. Pray for strength, protection and healing. Thank you all so much

  • The Allie Update -- 2/24/24
    24 Feb 2024

    👨🏼‍🏫 IT'S SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 24TH, 2024...

    Allie had her treatment today, and she was a little scared she told me, but I told her that was ok! She did good! She also got her braces yesterday, for her to wear when she’s sitting or laying down. They have also decided they want her to wear leg braces when she’s walking, for stability and comfort. She should get those in a week or so. The family was given a wheelchair to use at school, so she can save her leg strength for recess 😃

    Trevor is also going to look into a walker, which would be much easier for her to use.

    She’s always got a smile, doesn’t she?! Please keep praying for protection from illness. Pray that this treatment doesn’t cause her any issues and for complete healing.

    All of you who pray are such a blessing, you have no clue! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    The Allie update:

    Yesterday our girl started PT for her legs. She had a pretty good day today! I forgot to post her Valentines photo so you get two tonight!

    Please pray her legs get stronger and that the pain goes away. Pray for her to tolerate the treatment and for total healing.

    Thank you all so much
