I'm Riding For

Brianna Eileen Baily

Brianna Eileen Baily

For the past few years, I have dedicated my riding to a child battling cancer. I am so happy to say that each of those kids won their fight. This year, I am riding for five-year old Brianna who did not survive her fight. Brianna battled Neuroblastoma since she was just about 3 years old with the courage and grace of someone 20 times her age and life experience. Her adoring parents, Emily McGilton and RB Bailey, were by her side every step of the way. She spent many of her days at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and the Ronald McDonald House of New York City, where her courage and charm won the hearts of doctors, nurses, and staff alike. Her journey was one of bravery and resilience, and her spirit touched so many lives. Brianna was universally adored by everyone who had the privilege of knowing her. She was smart and spunky, precious and precocious, witty and wise beyond her years. She loved princesses, rainbows and unicorns; anything pink and purple; ice cream and crab legs; yellow rice, butter noodles spicy and Lay’s potato chips; kitties and puppies of both the real and stuffed animal variety, monsters, and her family. She had a variety of catch phrases but one in particular stood out: “No hate. Just love.” Brianna espoused this principle every day of her life.

My Story

25 Mar 2024

This is my 10th year participating in the Great Cycle Challenge to raise funds for pediatric cancer research. I have to admit that as I age the pedaling is getting a bit harder each year. Yet, I am fortunate to be able to still ride. There are many kids that will never share that experience, as cancer will end their life much too early.

While there have been tremendous progress in fighting pediatric cancer, it is still impacting the health of lives of too many kids.

So I am once again raising funds for the Children's Cancer Research Fund to help find a cure . The money you donate will allow them to continue their work in funding lifesaving research. Every dollar will bring us one step closer to helping another child beat this disease.

Your support does, and will, change little lives for the better. Thank You!

Mike

P.S. Cancer patients receiving chemotherapy often have a critical need blood and/or platelet transfusions. I now give platelets (see the picture) every two or three weeks. Platelets only have a five day shelf life resulting in a constant demand. Please give if you can.
