BENEFITING: American Cancer Society
EVENT DATE: Jul 27, 2013
This July, I will be doing my first organized cycle ride by participating in the Tour de Whatcom. As many members of my family and the family of friends have been impacted by cancer (I can think of about a dozen names off the top of my head), I will be riding 50 miles to support the work of American Cancer Society.
My mom was diagnosed with uveal (eye) cancer last fall, so I am dedicating this ride to her. Her prognosis is about as good as we can expect, but we will forever have cancer as a part of our family... regardless the outcome.
While we received relatively good news, many familes receive the worst news of their lives because of cancer. Please help me reach my goal of $1,000 by electing to donate as much as you are comfortable. Together, we can hopefully prevent families of the future from having to receive any news at all.
