I'm Riding For

Nicole Reed

This is my champion daughter! As an adult and mother of two beautiful children she recently received the diagnosis of Grade 4 Glioblastoma. Her husband and the entire family, along with her circle of amazing friends, as well as many others she has touched the lives of, are in her corner with prayers and assistance.

My Story

1 Sep 2023

This September, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!

My daughter is fighting Glioblastoma. I am a cancer survivor. Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

So I am raising funds through my 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 me by making a donation. We can all make a difference.

Your support will change little lives.

Thank you.

That was one of my reasons for not becoming a Pediatrician. I hope the day is near that we find a major breakthrough in treating, and perhaps preventing this disease.”
