Lawrenceville, New Jersey
I've spent 17 proud years at BMS. I'm not a scientist, physician or sales rep, all of whom can clearly see how what they do every day impacts patients. This ride gives me the opportunity to make whatever connection I do have to patients even stronger, while doing something I love - cycling.
Most recently I lost my Uncle Dennis, but the first person I ever lost to cancer was my grandfather Mario. I’m riding to honor him and his memory. My grandfather was one of the most influential people in my youth. An immigrant who made something from nothing, he loved and cared for his family and taught me to be tough on the outside but soft on the inside. In the 20 years since his passing, not a week goes that I don’t talk about him in some way.
When I listen to stories of cancer patients and survivors, their resilience is awe-inspiring. If the money I raise can help fund a development program, clinical trial, create patient support resources, or any of the thousands of steps in the process, I would be so grateful.
My message to cancer
We're coming for you…
