Stuff About Me:

One month from today, I will be at the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp as a part of the 2015 AngelRide. This will be my 11th year taking part and as I have said after each Ride in the past, it just keeps getting better and better. This year, however, the Ride, its cause, the Camp, and all involved have taken on new meaning following my own cancer diagnosis, surgery, and now, gratefully, my recovery. From the moment I learned of the diagnosis to now, I have been overwhelmed by the amount of support from my family and friends, and I am hoping that we can channel that love and support into helping kids facing similar serious illnesses. 
I was not in the hospital long on the day of my surgery, but I have a better sense of why the Camp's Hospital Outreach Program is so important for kids who have to spend days and weeks while under the care of others. I know many of the HOP specialists and they are amazing people who, each day, make sure that these children have a chance to smile, draw, sing, dance, and just be "kids" in a sometimes lonely place. I was, and am, lucky to have so many around me who helped me keep smiling during my small battle. I am hoping you'll help make it possible for the kids to feel so fortunate. 

I genuinely hope that you might consider making a donation to help Team One Ton and the AngelRide reach both of their goals in order to ensure the continued success of the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp's Hospital Outreach Program
