THE STORY:

Each year in the US alone, more than 1,500,000 people are diagnosed with cancer.  Cancer will affect all of us directly or indirectly at some point in our lives.

This hit home last year when I lost my father to a long, courageous battle with brain cancer.  During my 29 years, Dad taught me that life is full of challenges and that troubles never end for any of us, rather they are part of the human experience. He taught me that by developing a great work ethic and holding onto a positive attitude, it doesn’t matter how many times you get knocked down because you’ll always know how to get back up.

I have never considered myself a cyclist. However, when the opportunity to ride the 192-mile Pan-Mass Challenge emerged, driven by Dad’s strength and perseverance, I immediately said yes!  I will ride every mile with Dad’s signature Never Quit attitude, inspired to raise money for such an extraordinary cause.

The annual Pan-Mass Challenge raises money for lifesaving cancer research and treatment at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, providing doctors and researchers the necessary resources to eradicate every type of cancer.  It’s time to put the pedal to the pavement and make this dream become a reality.

Some of my Dad’s greatest life lessons would have never been realized had it not been for the doctors at Dana Farber; for that I am forever grateful.  The researchers at Dana Farber are working around the clock to end cancer’s destruction, but they need our help to continue supporting such encouraging research.  After all, tough times never last, tough people do.
