THE STORY:

I am a cancer survivor. I can say from direct experience that cancer is scary for those who have it and for their families.  

I was in the hospital for surgery a few months before and right after our first child was born. He is now 24 years old and has two "little" brothers, 19 and 17 years old. They are so grown up! But I still see the little boys they once were. And I worry about them all the time.   

Though I had cancer I cannot think what it must be like for a child to have cancer, or to have a child with cancer. As an adult I could understand what was happening to me. Little kids should not have to go through that. My wife could leave me in the care of doctors and hospital staff, and go home with our baby. How infinitely more difficult must it be to kiss one's baby good night and go home while the child stays in the hospital.  

I have benefited from family, doctors, and the army of researchers that helped me get past cancer. Now it is time for me to give something back. And that is why I'm going the distance.

“Go the Distance 2012” is set for June 24 - July 3, 2012. This time riding from San Francisco, CA to Boston, MA, in 10 days, Team Will plans to cross 14 states, visit 18 hospitals and participate in 7 community rallies with a goal of raising $125,000 for family support services and childhood cancer research.  For more information, please visit:  www.team-will.org
