Portsmouth, Rhode Island
I am very proud to be an employee at Bristol Myers Squibb. I wanted the chance to give back to our organization and to show my family and friends how dedicated we are to fighting this horrific disease called cancer.
I am riding for my sister Jen who is a brain cancer survivor and means more to me than words can describe. I’m inspired everyday by her positive nature and outlook towards everything that challenges her. She is an amazing sister and mother, and I want to show her how much we all appreciate everything she does. When I think of Jen, I think of a courageous, sweet, kind and sincere person with the strength of a lion inside. When I think of the grueling pain that cancer patients go through, I think anything is possible. I will use this to overcome any of the struggles I endure along the ride. I am inspired by their strength, courage and will to never give up.
I hope to inspire the people around me that are facing difficult challenges and give them courage to dig deep and never give up. I also hope to be one of the top fundraisers.
My message to cancer
You can knock us down but we will always get up until you are defeated.
