I'm Riding For
There are too many people among my friends and family, both adults and children, who have fought cancer or are currently fighting cancer. The most recent is a young great niece, who lived only 3 short years. This is a Good and Necessary Cause!
This September, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer! This year, I am riding for #TeamJoeStrong! Joe was just an average 3rd grader when he got the diagnosis that so many children continue to get. We desperately need research to help prevent and mitigate these diagnoses! That's why I am riding on Joe's Team this year.
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. Of those who survive, many undergo very difficult medicine regimes that are physically difficult and expensive. We need to do what we can to fund research so better and more inexpensive treatments can be found, so more of these children can enjoy childhood.
Kids should be enjoying life, not fighting for it. Parents should be able to enjoy it with them, too!
So I am raising funds through my challenge to help these kids and support Children's Cancer Research Fund in their quest for a cure.
Please support me by making a donation to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.
Your support will change little lives.
